Oh the hijinks we get into. Some new blood and interesting moves this week, so let's get right to it. For more information on what's going on here, click here.
As we all know Stanford knocked off Oregon, shaking up the field a bit. Auburn built up enough momentum to just barely jump 2 spots to #7 and pick up a home game in the first round. With their losses, Miami (FL) and Oklahoma lost their at-large bids, and because only three teams from a conference are allowed in the field, South Carolina and Texas A&M were passed over in favor of Oklahoma State and UCLA. And of course the talk of the town, more mayhem in Conference USA! With its upset loss to UTSA, Tulane has knocked itself way down the conference pecking order, making way for projected winner East Carolina.
Here is this week's field:
#1 Alabama (SEC Champion) [Last week: 1]
#2 Florida State (ACC Champion) 
#3 Ohio State (Big Ten Champion) 
#4 Stanford (Pac-12 Champion) 
#5 Baylor (Big 12 Champion) 
#6 Oregon (At-large, Pac-12 #2) 
#7 Auburn (At-large, SEC #2) 
#8 Clemson (At-large, ACC #2) 
#9 Missouri (At-large, SEC #3) 
#10 Oklahoma State* (At-large, Big 12 #2) [DNQ]
#11 UCLA* (At-large, Pac-12 #3) [DNQ]
#12 Fresno State (Mountain West Champion) 
#13 Northern Illinois (MAC Champion) 
#14 Central Florida (AAC Champion) 
#15 East Carolina (C-USA Champion) [DNQ]
#16 Louisiana-Lafayette (Sun Belt Champion) 
#10 South Carolina (SEC #4; replaced by Oklahoma State)
#11 Texas A&M (SEC #5; replaced by UCLA)
Michigan State (8-1)
Arizona State (7-2)
Michigan State is the first eligible bubble team available, and I added so many others because they're all so close in BCS average. I'm sure UCLA would be just thrilled to be welcomed to the playoff field by Oregon.
