TCU slid up a spot in this week's BCS Rankings due to Oklahoma's loss to Missouri and their 38-7 victory over Air Force. Auburn jumped past #2 Oregon and #3 Boise State, thanks to their tight win over then-#6 LSU. Michigan rounds out the top five.
Missouri jumped to #6 to lead the way for the Big 12, and Alabama, at #7, leads the way for one-loss teams.
The Horned Frogs are two weeks away from their showdown with #8 Utah, a game that could give them enough juice to jump Boise. They would still need significant help to withstand teams from automatic qualifier conferences to reach a title game, as someone from the SEC will be tough to keep out of the game, and Oregon must then lose. Missouri and Michigan State must also be held off. The Frogs could also use more success from #25 Baylor, who they manhandled 45-10 in September.
Up next for TCU is a warm-up visit to Las Vegas and 1-6 UNLV.
