Missouri stands an outside chance of sneaking into Bowl Championship Series bowl game. The Tigers moved up two spots to No. 12 in the latest standings released Sunday night.
Stanford and Wisconsin all but locked up bids to the BCS, and Oklahoma earned a spot in the Big 12 title game by outpointing Oklahoma State and Texas A&M in the latest standings .
Auburn and Oregon also switched places at the top of the BCS standings, with the Tigers slipping into first place — but that hardly matters.
Both are still on track to play for the national championship on Jan. 10 in Glendale, Ariz. Auburn needs to beat South Carolina in the Southeastern Conference championship game on Saturday to lock up its spot. Oregon needs a victory at Oregon State.
TCU is third and in position to grab an automatic bid — possibly to the Rose Bowl — now that Boise State is no threat to swipe it from the Horned Frogs.
No. 9 Oklahoma is headed back to the Big 12 championship game to face No. 13 Nebraska after winning a tiebreaker based on the BCS standings. Oklahoma State was 14th and Texas A&M 18th. The three teams finished the regular season tied atop the Big 12 South with 6-2 records in conference play, and the BCS standings were used to break the tie.
It's the second time in three years that Oklahoma has made it to the Big 12 title game after finishing in a three-way tie for the South title.
Two teams jumped ahead of Missouri in the AP poll. Nebraska went from No. 16 to No. 13. Nevada went from No. 19 to No. 14.
Also in the AP poll, Boise State dropped six spots to No. 9, while for the third straight week, No. 1 Oregon and Auburn held the top two spots in the rankings. No. 3 TCU moved up one spot.
