With the Crimson Tide's loss to LSU, Oklahoma State moves up to No. 2 in the latest BCS Standings, while the Oklahoma Sooners hold tight at No. 6, however the biggest surprise is the Alabama Crimson Tide dropping just one spot to No. 3.

The Cowboys held off a late-game push from Kansas State, which dropped to No. 14 after the loss, to stay alive in the National Championship picture. OSU trails LSU by .05 in the overall BCS, but split the computer rankings evenly with the Tigers to hold a tie in the rankings.

Oklahoma is the second-highest ranked one-loss team, behind the Alabama Crimson Tide. However, the Sooners' computer ranking has them at a tie for fourth place in the computer average, behind LSU, Oklahoma State and Alabama.

The Crimson Tide lost an overtime thriller to the top-ranked Tigers, dropping two spots in the human polls and just one in the computer rankings.
