This week's BCS Top 25 saw a small shake-up at the top, as No. 1 LSU stayed the same, but Alabama only fell to one spot to No. 3 after their 9-6 home loss to the Tigers. As far as Big Ten teams goes, Penn State at 8-1 overall is the highest rated Big Ten team at the No. 12 spot.
Alabama controversially stays ahead of undefeated Stanford and Boise State at No. 4 and 5, respectively. The Cardinal will have a chance to move up this week when they visit No. 7 Oregon.
