|TCU Closes In On Top 2 In BCS Standings
|NEW YORK (AP) -- TCU's best chance to catch Oregon and Auburn in the BCS standings came and went, and the Horned Frogs are still chasing the top two.
TCU closed the gap on the first-place Ducks and second-place Tigers, and widened its advantage on fourth-place Boise State on Sunday, a day after a resounding 47-7 victory at previously unbeaten Utah.
The Horned Frogs' BCS average is .9259 after coming in third in both the Harris and coaches' polls and second in the computer ratings. Oregon (.9638) is first in both polls and third in the computers. Auburn (.9611) is second in the polls and first in the computers.
LSU moved up to fifth overall after beating Alabama 24-21.
Looking ahead, TCU (10-0) appears to have virtually no chance of moving up unless at least one of the top two teams loses.
