NEW YORK (AP) -- Stanford and Wisconsin all but locked up bids to the Bowl Championship Series, and Oklahoma earned a spot in the Big 12 title game by outpointing Oklahoma State and Texas A&M in the latest standings.
Auburn and Oregon also switched places at the top of the standings, with the Tigers slipping into first place -- but that hardly matters.
Both are still on track to play for the national championship on Jan. 10 in Glendale, Ariz. Auburn needs to beat South Carolina in the Southeastern Conference championship game on Saturday to lock up its spot. Oregon needs a victory at Oregon State.
TCU is third and in position to grab an automatic bid -- possibly to the Rose Bowl -- now that Boise State is no threat to swipe it from the Horned Frogs.
