Oklahoma is No. 1.

The Sooners debuted atop the first BCS Standings of the season, released on ESPN on Sunday night.

OU was No. 3 in the Coaches' Poll, and No. 4 in the Harris, which comprise two-thirds of the BCS formula.

But thanks to a strong nonconference schedule and a win over Texas, the Sooners dominated the third element of the BCS, the computer ratings, where OU was ranked first.

The Sooners are followed in the BCS Standings by Oregon, Boise State, Auburn and TCU.

Undefeated Oklahoma State, which moved up to No. 15 in both the Coaches and Harris polls, opened up at No. 14 in the BCS.

Missouri, OU’s upcoming opponent, is ranked No. 11.
