The first BCS rankings of the 2011 season will be released on Sunday, Oct. 16, then weekly through Dec. 4.
The Auburn Tigers almost certainly need a win over Florida over Saturday to appear in the BCS rankings, which consists of 25 teams.
The Tigers fell out of the USA Today Coaches’ Poll, an important component of the BCS rankings, after losing to Arkansas on Saturday.

The other component of the rankings is the computer rankings, a combination of six other college football rankings from various sources.
