The latest BCS rankings are out and there's been a major shake-up.

TCU's consistent superior play has been noticed by both the BCS computers and voters. TCU is above Texas in the computers, but behind Cincinnati, who comes in at No. 3.

Boise State has no real chance to catch TCU if both finish the season undefeated, especially with TCU's upcoming battle against Utah.

USC received its lofty ranking mainly due to confusion between the computers and the human voters regarding Ohio State and Iowa.

On to the rankings:


1.  Florida (.9842)

2. Alabama (.9516)

3. Texas (.9234)

4. TCU (.8620)

5. Cincinnati (.8580)

6. Boise State (.8126)

7. Georgia Tech (.7552)

8. LSU (.6138)

9. USC (.5922)

10. Iowa (.5745)

11. Ohio State (.5733)

12. Pittsburgh (.5628)

13. Oregon (.5318)

14. Miami (.4712)

15. Houston (.4691)

16. Utah (.4003)

17. Arizona (.3363)

18. Penn State (.3350)

19. Oklahoma State (.2909)

20. Wisconsin (.2334)

21. Virginia Tech (.2331)

22. BYU (.1236)

23. Oregon State (.1231)
