The chaos of Saturday has now given way to the calm of Sunday evening, as this week's BCS rankings have a clear No. 1 and No. 2. With Boise State and Stanford falling from the ranks of the unbeaten only Oklahoma State, LSU, and Houston remain undefeated, and they are the big winners as the the Tigers and Cowboys sit at the No. 1 and No. 2 spots, while the Cougars sit at No. 11 and would miss out on a BCS bowl as of right now as they still sit behind Boise State as the highest rated non-automatic qualifier:

 

 

1 LSU

 

2 Oklahoma State

 

3 Alabama

 

4 Oregon

 

5 Oklahoma

 

6 Arkansas

 

7 Clemson

 

8 Virginia Tech

 

9 Stanford

 

10 Boise State

 

11 Houston

18 Michigan

 

19 TCU

 

20 Southern Miss

 

21 Penn State

 

22 Baylor

 

23 Texas

 

24 Auburn

The Big Ten sees no teams in the top 14, but Michigan State (No. 15), Nebraska (No. 16), Wisconsin (No. 17) and Michigan (No. 18) are all bunched together.
