Both Michigan and Michigan State saw a small advance in this week's BCS rankings. The Spartans are the highest rated team in the Big Ten at No. 15 after their dominant win at Iowa. The Wolverines are not far behind them at No. 18, with fellow Big Ten teams Nebraska and Wisconsin between them:

 

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

 

12 South Carolina

 

13 Kansas State

 

14 Georgia

 

15 Michigan State

 

16 Nebraska

 

17 Wisconsin

 

18 Michigan

 

19 TCU

 

20 Southern Miss

 

21 Penn State

 

22 Baylor

 

23 Texas

 

24 Auburn

 

25 Florida State

 

LSU stayed at the No. 1 spot while Oklahoma moved up to No. 2 after their dominant 66-6 victory over Texas Tech. Alabama, whose only loss was to LSU a week ago, is at No. 3, with Oregon No. 4. Boise State's one point home loss to TCU dropped them to No. 10, which would still have them playing in a BCS bowl ahead of undefeated Houston.
