Auburn is No. 1 in BCS standings

Auburn jumped three spots to No. 1 in the latest BCS standings, released on Sunday night. Auburn is No. 1 in the BCS standings for the first time in school history.

The Tigers beat LSU 24-17 on Saturday afternoon. Auburn has wins this season over some pretty good teams -- Mississippi State, Clemson, South Carolina, Arkansas and LSU. That appears to be the reason Auburn jumped over Oregon in the BCS standings.

Remember, Oregon is No. 1 in both the AP and USA Today polls. Oregon is also No. 1 in the Harris poll, which factors into the BCS standings.

But Auburn has a computer ranking of No. 1, which Oregon's computer ranking is No. 8.

The team with the second best computer ranking is Missouri, which beat Oklahoma on Saturday night. Oklahoma was No. 1 in last week's first BCS standings of the season.
