Oregon surges with victory over Stanford

Posted: November 14, 2011

OREGON CHARGED back into national championship contention, jumping to fourth place in the BCS standings yesterday after its big victory over Stanford.

LSU and Oklahoma State, both unbeaten, have the top two spots locked down and are on a path to meet in the BCS title game if they can stay perfect.

Alabama is third hoping for a stumble by the top two. Oregon jumped from seventh last week to fourth with its 53-30 victory against Stanford. The losses by Stanford and Boise State allowed Oklahoma to inch into fifth.

Boise State's loss dropped the Broncos to 10th and gives them little hope to reach the BCS again. Undefeated Houston, from Conference USA, is 11th and in solid position to be this year's BCS buster if it can keep winning.

Boise State was upset, 36-35, by Mountain West Conference rival TCU. The Broncos missed a last-second 39-yard field goal.
