Irving, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Oregon leapfrogged Florida State for the coveted second spot in the latest edition of the BCS standings released Sunday.
Alabama (8-0, .9937) sits at its usual perch atop the standings. The two- time reigning BCS champion Crimson Tide have been nothing short of spectacular in rolling to a perfect record, outscoring their opponents, 246-26, over the past six games.
The Ducks (8-0, .9517) passed the Seminoles (7-0, .9211) following an impressive 42-14 triumph over then-No. 12 UCLA. Florida State held the second spot in the original standings last Sunday after its 51-14 beatdown of Clemson. FSU downed NC State, 49-17, on Saturday.
Oregon holds a .0306 advantage over FSU, which led by a minuscule .0028 in last Sunday's standings.
Ohio State remained at No. 4, while Stanford is the highest ranked one-loss team at No. 5. Baylor, Miami-Florida, Clemson, Missouri and Oklahoma round out the top 10.
No. 16 Fresno State and No. 17 Northern Illinois are the nation's top two squads from outside the automatic qualifying conferences.
This is the final year the national championship will be determined by the BCS standings, which factor in the USA Today Poll, the Harris Poll and six computer rankings.
A highly anticipated four-team playoff will be installed for the 2014 season.
Alabama and Notre Dame played in the BCS final last year, and the Crimson Tide won handily, 42-14, en route to their third championship in four years. The win also extended the SEC's streak to seven consecutive national champions.
