Oregon vaults over Auburn in BCS

11/1/2010


Even a convincing win at Ole Miss, couldn't keep the Auburn Tigers the No. 1 team in the BCS Standings.

Dropped out of BCS No. 1 Spot
Without Losing, BCS History

This is the fourth time a team fell out of the No. 1 spot without losing. Two of the previous three teams to fall from the top spot without losing went on to play in the BCS title game.

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.
