BCS Standings: Auburn Tops BCS Rankings For First Time in Week 9, Oregon Second

ESPN just released the second official BCS rankings of the 2010 season on its "BCS Countdown" show. It's going the American Idol route and stretching out the selections, and announced the bottom 15 teams in the top 25 first. This is a new and interesting addition to the the college football polls as they stand, because none of the rest require me to listen to Craig James and Robert Smith.

Tonight, the Auburn Tigers take the top spot for the first time in school history after a big win over LSU this weekend, and Oregon stays at second, secure in the knowledge that their schedule will keep them ahead of Boise State and TCU even if all three teams win out.

The first one-loss team is, again, Alabama, but watch out for Missouri: the Tigers have Nebraska left on the schedule, could see Oklahoma again, and have plenty of upward mobility if the heavyweights ahead of them take a dive.

We'll have more analysis as the night wears on.
