NEW YORK (AP) — Oregon and Auburn have swapped spots atop the BCS standings and Boise State has been passed again, this time by TCU.
The Ducks (8-0) moved into first place for the first time this season, which is interesting but not necessarily important. Auburn (9-0) grabbed the top spot last week, but Oregon caught up after beating Southern California 53-32, leaving the Tigers in second place.
The top two teams in the final BCS standings on Dec. 5 play in the championship game Jan. 10 in Glendale, Ariz.
Oregon is No. 1 in the two polls used in the standings and No. 2 according to the computer ratings. Auburn is first in the computers and No. 2 among the poll voters.
TCU is third, Boise State fourth and Utah fifth.
