College Football Rankings, Week 15: Oregon Overtaken By Auburn, Stanford Remains In AP Poll Top 5

There were only a scant few games this weekend, but there was still movement at the top of the college football polls. The Oregon Ducks fell from their top spot in the latest Associated Press poll, while the Stanford Cardinal remained at No. 5, the same ranking held by both in the USA Today coaches poll. Auburn gained 13 first-place votes from Oregon after the Tigers' convincing SEC Championship win over South Carolina on Saturday. The two best teams in the Pac-10 this year will play in BCS bowls, to be announced later today. The Ducks are headed for Glendale, Arizona for the BCS National Championship game, while the Cardinal are headed for either the Orange Bowl (in Miami, Florida) or Fiesta Bowl (also in Glendale).

Here is the new AP top 25:

  1. Auburn (36 first place votes)
  2. Oregon (23)
  3. TCU (1)
  4. Wisconsin
  5. Stanford
  6. Ohio State
  7. Michigan State
