The BCS rankings have only been out for two weeks, and already they are seeing the same type of juggling that has occurred in all the major polls so far this season.
One team that has avoided all of the upsets is Ohio State, and while they did not dominate Michigan State in their win, they did enough by just winning, and remained #1 for the second week in the BCS standings.
Boston College was the beneficiary of a South Florida loss on Thursday at Rutgers, and now the Eagles are in a position to play for a national championship as they moved up to #2 in the BCS.
LSU had a strong second half comeback in their victory over Auburn, and have fought their way back towards the top, coming in at #3.
Surprisingly, Arizona State jumped all the way to #4 this week, as they are one of the few undefeated teams left in college football.
Oregon, another Pac Ten team, rounds out the top five.
Numbers six through eight are all teams that have overcome early season losses and are climbing week by week. Oklahoma is #6, West Virginia #7, and Virginia Tech #8.
Kansas is another of those undefeated teams, but they are not getting much love from the BCS, as they are currently #9, and South Florida drops all the way down to #10 after being upset.

The meat of the college football conference schedule has arrived and this weekend several conferences will see teams eliminated from title contention as top teams are facing each other.
In the ACC, the #2 team in the country is traveling to play #8 Virginia Tech, a team that has not lost since early in the season. The game will feature two teams that not only have conference hopes, but national title aspirations.
Out West, the PAC Ten has their version of a title game with former national power USC, for once trying to ruin another conference teams title hopes, as they travel to face #5 Oregon. #21 Cal and #4 Arizona State also meet on Saturday.
In the Big East, South Florida is looking to rebound from their loss to Rutgers, but they must recover quickly as they again go on the road to face #23 Connecticut.
Over in the SEC, where there seems to be a big game every week, Florida continues its murderous schedule when they go on the road to play #18 Georgia, and the loser will be eliminated from the conference title race.
The #1 team in the country, Ohio State, will have their first test of the year when they lock up with #25 Penn State.
At the end of the weekend, the conference pictures will be much clearer, as some teams will have fallen out of contention, while others move one step closer to a championship.
