The BCS college football rankings saw the Florida State Seminoles move back into 2nd place after they destroyed the Miami Hurricanes, who ranked 7th in last week’s poll. The Seminoles moved ahead of the Oregon Ducks, one week after the Ducks moved ahead of Florida State.

If Oregon knocks off the 5th ranked Stanford Cardinal next week, they will move back into 2nd place, where they will remain unless they are beaten later in the season.

The Alabama Crimson Tide remains in 1st place, while the Ohio State Buckeyes are in 4th and one-loss Stanford sits in 5th. The undefeated Baylor Bears rank 6th in the BCS college football rankings, almost an insult since they are ranked under one-loss Stanford.

The rest of the Top 10 includes three one-loss Tigers teams – the Clemson Tigers, Missouri Tigers and Auburn Tigers – while the Oklahoma Sooners still sit in 10th. Auburn actually jumped the Sooners in the rankings by beating a three-win Arkansas Razorbacks team while the Sooners remained idol.

The loss of the Texas Tech Red Raiders to the Oklahoma State Cowboys is what hurt the Sooners the most.

The Sooners play the 6th ranked Baylor Bears on Thursday night while Oregon plays Stanford, so there could be a major shift in the rankings if there are upsets in Week 12.
