For the second straight week, the Ducks are the top team in the BCS standings, running their overall streak in the top spot of the three human polls to four weeks.

Oregon's BCS average slipped slightly from .9777 last week to .9638, and its lead over No. 2 Auburn (.9611) narrowed to just .0027. The Tigers beat FCS school Chattanooga on Saturday to improve to 10-0, while the Ducks (9-0) blasted Washington 53-16.

UO is also ranked first in the AP, USA Today (coaches) and Harris Interactive top 25 polls. The Ducks received one fewer first-place vote from the coaches (50) and one more from in the Harris (93) than a week ago. Those two human polls make up two-thirds of the formula along with the an average of six computer rankings.

TCU (10-0), Boise State (8-0), LSU (8-1) and Stanford (8-1) are third through sixth, respectively, in the BCS. Of the four unbeaten squads remaining, Oregon (vs. Stanford) and Auburn (vs. LSU) are the only teams with victories against opponents currently ranked among the top 13 in the BCS standings.
