BCS Standings, Week 11: Auburn And LSU In Top Five, Florida Back In Top 25

This week's BCS top 25 standings are out, to great fanfare. Unless some sort of catastrophe strikes, this year's BCS title game will be played by some pairing of the Oregon Ducks, Auburn Tigers, TCU Horned Frogs, and Boise St. Broncos. If Oregon and Auburn win out, they're in. Both face considerable hurdles, though the Plains Eagles face a much rougher road than do the Ducks.

If one of the frontrunners loses, TCU will be happy to clean up the mess. God help us if Oregon loses and Auburn loses two games between now and then without LSU winning the SEC -- both entirely feasible -- because we might just see the beginning of the end of the crooked bowl system as we know it. If anything can do it, a not-all-that-unreasonable TCU vs. Boise St. national title game would be just the thing.

The one-loss LSU Tigers would have a shot, but they'd need Auburn to lose to both the Georgia Bulldogs and Alabama Crimson Tide to even make their way into the SEC Championship Game, though crazier things have literally already happened for Les Miles' boys this year.

The Virginia Tech Hokies put on for their conference, ranked at a much more reasonable No. 20 by the computers than their Coaches' Poll ranking. All told, eight teams from southeastern conferences made the cut this week.
