A dramatic, double-overtime win against Arizona on Saturday night paid off for Oregon today, with the Ducks jumping three spots to No. 8 in the Bowl Championship Series standings.

BCS logo Oregon replaced Louisiana State in the eighth position after the Tigers of Baton Rouge lost to Mississippi.

The rest of the BCS top 10 remained unchanged, with the undefeated schools -- Florida, Alabama, Texas, Texas Christian, Cincinnati and Boise State -- holding down the top six spots.

Georgia Tech, which had a bye week, remained at No. 7, with Oregon, Pittsburgh and Ohio State rounding out the top 10.

Florida leads the BCS with an average of .9664, followed by Alabama at .9614 and Texas at .9263.

Alabama, with a 45-0 over Chattanooga, seized the top spot in the computer component from Florida, a 62-3 winner against Florida International.

It’s a big week for the BCS top three, as all face dangerous rivalry games. Florida hosts Florida State, Alabama is at Auburn and Texas travels to Texas A&M.

The Atlantic Coast leads all conferences with five teams in this week’s top 25: Georgia Tech (7), Virginia Tech (14), Miami (17), Clemson (18) and North Carolina (24). The Southeastern and Pac-10 have four schools each represented in the standings.

The top two schools in the final standings on Dec. 6 will play Jan. 7 for the BCS title at the Rose Bowl.
