Stanford, Wisconsin, Oklahoma are big BCS winners

-A A +A
By Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Stanford was the big winner in the latest BCS standings.

The Cardinal, along with Wisconsin, all but locked up bids to the Bowl Championship Series, and Oklahoma earned a spot in the Big 12 title game by outpointing Oklahoma State and Texas A&M on Sunday.

Auburn and Oregon also switched places at the top of the standings, with the Tigers slipping by the Ducks into first place — but that hardly matters.

Both are still on track to play for the national championship on Jan. 10 in Glendale, Ariz. Auburn needs to beat South Carolina in the Southeastern Conference championship game on Saturday to lock up its spot and Oregon needs a victory at Oregon State in the Civil War rivalry.

The only difference between one and two in the BCS is No. 1 gets to wear its home jerseys.

TCU is third and in position to grab an automatic bid — possibly to the Rose Bowl — now that Boise State is no threat to swipe it from the Horned Frogs. The Broncos lost to Nevada 34-31 in overtime on Friday night.

TCU is also on-deck for a spot in the national championship game if one of the top two teams trip up.
