Louisiana State has surged into the No. 2 spot in the BCS standings behind Ohio State, according to the BCS Guru. This despite the fact the shaky Tigers — playing at Baton Rouge — were nearly upset and needed last-second heroics to beat Auburn.
Boston College, No. 3 in last week's standings, was idle. Oklahoma, No. 5 last week, struggled to win at Iowa State and could not overtake the Tigers, who were No. 4 last week.
South Florida, No. 2 last week, has tumbled all the way to No. 13.
The official BCS standings won't come out until Sunday, but the Guru projects this to be the top 15:
1. Ohio State, 2. LSU, 3. Boston College, 4. Oklahoma, 5. West Virginia, 6. Oregon, 7. Arizona State, 8. Virginia Tech, 9. Kansas, 10. Florida, 11. Missouri, 12. USC, 13. South Florida, 14. Kentucky, 15. South Carolina.
The Guru has posted his latest update at The BerlinZoo. Because he is traveling, he won't update the BCS Guru site until Sunday night, hence the posting at The BerlinZoo.
So what do you think, Boston College and USC fans? Was LSU's shaky victory enough to leapfrog the Eagles?
And despite an impressive victory over a horrible Notre Dame team, the Trojans still can't crack the BCS top 10. Two two-loss SEC teams — Kentucky and South Carolina — remain in the top 15, just behind the one-loss Trojans.
