The Associated Press top five is Oregon, Boise State, Auburn, TCU and Alabama. Rounding out the AP top 10 are Utah, Wisconsin, Ohio State, Nebraska and Stanford.
The USA Today poll is used in the BCS standings while the AP is no longer part of the formula but still crowns an independent champion.
It seemed inevitable that Auburn would eventually pass Boise State for the No. 2 spot in the coaches' poll, although the leapfrog this week came after Boise State scored a 29-point win over Louisiana Tech last Tuesday.
Auburn made the move with a 20-point road win at Mississippi (3-5).
The latest BCS standings will be released Sunday evening on ESPN.
