As expected, LSU remained No. 1 in the BCS poll, followed by Alabama and Oklahoma State. Stanford was one of the biggest winners as it moved up two spots to fourth after a 4OT win over USC. Boise State dropped a spot, while Oklahoma got a boost, moving up three places to sixth. Arkansas joined the Sooners and jumped three spots to 7th.

Another big winner this week was Houston. The Cougars moved up four spots to 13th after a 73-34 hammering of Rice. For Houston to earn an automatic BCS big, it must win the Conference USA championship and finish in the BCS top 12.

Clemson took a huge tumble, falling from 5th to 11th, while Kansas State went from 8th to 14th.
