BCS Results Week 2
Unlike the shakeups that occurred last weekend in college football, this week remained fairly constant, with no major upsets, albeit some disappointments. The one significant move was by Oregon, which jumped Florida State to the number No. 2 spot by way of their 42-14 thumping of previously No. 12 ranked UCLA (which fell to #20 in this week’s poll). Auburn made the biggest jump moving up six places to No. 11, edging Oklahoma State for the spot by 1 point (804 to 803) and No. 13 LSU (804 pts.).
Alabama stayed secure in it’s No. 1 position with a convincing 45-10 win over Tennessee, and Auburn’s recent surge sets up a potentially huge Iron Bowl matchup with Bama on November 30, with SEC Championship Game and potentially BCS implications on the line.
Two Fall, Eight Unbeaten Teams Remain
Falling from the ranks of the unbeatens were Texas Tech, a 38-30 loser to the Sooners in Norman, and Missouri, who lost a heartbreaker in double overtime at home to South Carolina 27-24.
Still unbeaten and clinging to hopes that they’ll get some help from two of the top three teams are Ohio State (8-0 No. 4), Baylor (7-0 No. 6), and Miami (7-0 No. 7). The other two remaining unbeatens are Fresno Sate (7-0, No. 16) and Northern Illinois (8-0, No. 17)
