Auburn football: Tigers remain No. 11 in BCS Standings, move to No. 8 in AP poll

AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn's 45-10 victory over Florida Atlantic did nothing to improve its place in the BCS Standings released Sunday night.

For the second straight week, the Tigers came in at No. 11. Auburn (.6025) trails No. 10 Oklahoma (.6064) by mere percentage points. The Sooners leaped five spots after beating Texas Tech 38-30 on Saturday, the team which formerly resided in the No. 10 spot.

Auburn's .6025 average falls just behind No. 10 Oklahoma (.6064), which jumped five spots following a 38-30 victory against then-No. 10 Texas Tech on Saturday.

The biggest change in the BCS came at the top, where Oregon eased past Florida State to grab the No. 2 ranking, while Alabama stayed at No. 1.

While the BCS may not have impressed with Saturday's win, Auburn made jumps in the two major human polls. The Tigers moved three positions — from No. 11 to No. 8 — in the AP's latest poll and rose six spots in the USA Today coaches poll, going from No. 17 to No. 11.

There are five other SEC teams aside from the Tigers in the AP's top 25, and all reside in the top 14: Alabama at No. 1, Missouri at No. 10, LSU at No. 11, Texas A&M at No. 12 and South Carolina at No. 14.
