Even a convincing win at Ole Miss, couldn't keep the Auburn Tigers the No. 1 team in the BCS Standings.
The Oregon Ducks are the new No. 1, the 15th different school to hold No. 1 BCS spot and third from the Pac-10, joining USC and UCLA.
For the first time in BCS history, there are three teams from non-AQ conference schools (TCU, Boise State, Utah) in the top five at the same time.
It’s the second time in BCS history there have been three different No. 1 teams in the first three standings of the year. In 1998, the first season of the BCS, UCLA debuted at No. 1, Ohio State was No. 1 the following week, and Tennessee was the top team a week later. The Vols held the No. 1 spot the rest of the season.
