The Texas Longhorns are expected to move up in the latest BCS standings after their 52-20 win over the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Texas is not expected to make a big jump from their No. 21 spot and crack the top-15 this week, but they should move into the top-20 after the Michigan Wolverines and Arizona St. Sun Devils both were upset on Saturday.

As for the rest of the Big 12, the Oklahoma St. Cowboys are in the drivers seat to go to the BCS title game if they win out, but that will have to include a win over the Oklahoma Sooners who should be in the top-10 of the BCS when the two teams meet the first weekend in December.

The TCU Horned Frogs have a shot to finally move into the top 25 of the BCS after their 31-20 win over the Wyoming Cowboys. Last week, TCU came in at No. 29 in the BCS standings and with Arizona State, Washington Huskies and Texas A&M Aggies losing -- all who were ahead of TCU in the BCS standings -- could allow TCU to sneak into the top 25 of the BCS for the first time this season.

Here are the Week 11 BCS projections:

1. LSU
2. Oklahoma State
3. Alabama
4. Stanford
5. Boise State
6. Oklahoma
7. Arkansas
8. Oregon
9. Clemson
10. Virginia Tech
11. Houston
12. Penn State
13. Kansas State
14. South Carolina
15. Michigan State

The official BCS standings will be released at 7:15 p.m. Central.
