Only in the BCS standings does Oregon get passed.
Kansas State moved ahead of the Ducks and up to No. 3 yesterday behind SEC rivals Alabama and Florida.
The Wildcats' big victory Saturday at West Virginia was enough to nudge them past the Ducks, who are No. 2 in both polls but are getting held back by computer ratings that lag behind the other highly ranked teams.
The Crimson Tide (.9625) is still solidly in first, and Florida (.9310) grabbed a firmer grip on second with a 44-11 victory over South Carolina on Saturday.
The Gators are tops in the computer ratings and Kansas State is second. The Wildcats (.9111) beat West Virginia, 55-14, for their third Big 12 road victory.
Fourth-place Oregon (.8966), coming off a 43-21 win at Arizona State, is sixth in the computer ratings.
