After its win over previously unbeaten Texas Tech, Oklahoma jumped five spots to No. 10 in the BCS standings

Oklahoma State moved up one spot to No. 18 in the standings, which were released Sunday.

There was a shakeup in the top 3, with Oregon passing Florida State to moved into second place behind Alabama.

The Ducks jumping the Seminoles was not a surprise. Florida State had a slim lead on the Ducks in the first standings last week. Oregon's convincing 42-14 victory against UCLA gave the Ducks the boost it needed.

Oregon moved up to third from fourth in the computer ratings and remained second in both the USA Today coaches' poll and the Harris poll to give it a .9517 BCS average.

Florida State, after routing North Carolina State 49-17, has a .9211 BCS average. The Seminoles are third in each poll, though they gained a little ground on the Ducks, and second in the computer ratings.

Two-time defending national champion Alabama is first across the board.

Alabama's remaining schedule is LSU, Mississippi State, Chattanooga and Auburn before a possible Southeastern Conference championship game. If the Crimson Tide run the table, it'll likely play in a third straight BCS championship game, and fourth in five years.

Florida State has a chance to gain on Oregon this week when it plays seventh-place Miami on Saturday. The Ducks are off, but Oregon's next game comes against fifth-place Stanford on Nov. 7.

Florida State's schedule after Miami has Wake Forest, Syracuse, Idaho and Florida before a possible Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. Oregon's schedule after Stanford has Utah, Arizona and Oregon State before a possible Pac-12 championship game.
