USC's punishing victory at Nebraska put the Trojans back on top of the unofficial Bowl Championship Series standings, according to the BCS Guru, but the margin between USC and No. 2 Louisiana State is of the razor-thin variety.
The Trojans and Tigers have comfortable margins over the rest of the field, which includes No. 3 Florida and No. 4 West Virginia. Of note here is that Texas is at No. 5 and Oklahoma, which is regarded to be the best team in the Big 12 at the moment, sits at No. 6.
LSU could move back into the top spot with a victory Saturday over South Carolina, which is at No. 12 in the standings.
