Ducks Climb Up To #2 In BCS, Top Media, Coaches Polls; Beavers Drop After Road Defeat, Still In Top 20

Following their Saturday road win at California, combined with Texas A&M's victory at Alabama, the Oregon Ducks climbed up a spot to #2 in the Bowl Championship Series standings that were released on Sunday.  The Ducks trail only Kansas State while Notre Dame moved up to #3, with Alabama now at #4 and Georgia at #5.  The Ducks now top both the Associated Press media poll (garnering 45 of a possible 60 first-place votes) and the USA Today/Coaches poll (44 of the 59 available first-place votes).

Following their tough road defeat at Stanford, the Oregon State Beavers dropped five place to #16 in the BCS standings, two spots to #15 in the AP poll, and five places to #17 in the coaches' poll.
