Alabama remained No. 1 in the latest Bowl Championship Series standings, while Auburn remained at No. 11.

Oregon shifted ahead of Florida State for the No. 2 spot, while the Seminoles are now third. Ohio State is fourth.

In the human polls, the Associated Press lifted the Tigers to No. 8 from 11th. Meanwhile, the coaches had Auburn at No. 17 a week ago but have pushed Gus Malzahn's team to No. 11 today. The Harris Interactive poll has Auburn at No. 11, a week after the Tigers were No. 15, jumping SEC rivals LSU (stayed at No. 12) and Texas A&M (stayed at No. 13).

In the AP poll, Alabama received 55 of 60 first-place votes, which is the same as last week. The coaches gave the Crimson Tide 56 of 62 first-place votes, which is one less than a week ago. Oregon has the remaining six votes.

In the Harris poll, Alabama received 94 first-place votes, and Oregon has 10.

The Crimson Tide is coming off a 45-10 win over rival Tennessee and leads the nation in scoring defense, allowing only 9.8 points a game. The Tigers spent Saturday pounding Florida Atlantic 45-10.

The BCS standings are a combination of the coaches poll (one-third), the Harris poll (one-third) and a combination of computer rankings (one-third).
