Alabama Remains No. 1 In BCS Standings, Oregon No. 2

 

The Alabama Crimson Tide remained at the top of the Bowl Championship Series standings for the second week, and the Oregon Ducks returned to the second spot after opening at No.3 behind Florida State. Tickets to the BCS National Championship are available now but will be difficult to come by if any of those two teams meet.

The Seminoles dropped to third place despite dominating North Carolina State on Saturday. Oregon and Florida State are chasing each other in the human polls, and both are hot on the heels of the undefeated Tide.

Undefeated Ohio State remained at the No. 4 spot after blowing out Penn State. Stanford rounded out the top five, being the highest-ranked one-loss team in the standings.

Baylor is at No.6, and Miami is in the seven spot despite narrowly beating Wake Forest. The Hurricanes needed a touchdown in the final minute to get past the 4-4 Demon Deacons.

Clemson is at No. 8, and Missouri dropped to ninth place after losing their first game of the season to the South Carolina Gamecocks.

Oklahoma climbed into the top ten after beating previously undefeated Texas Tech.

Alabama could potentially slip in the standings next week as they are idle.

The Crimson Tide have arguably the best defense in the country under Nick Saban which has led Alabama to #1 in the AP polls as they look to capture their third straight BCS National Championship, but Alabama football tickets are the #7 team in the TiqIQ Top 25 poll this week.  Alabama moved up one spot this week as their average ticket price is now $160 per game.
