The Auburn Tigers (12-0, 8-0) have claimed the top spot in the latest BCS poll released earlier today. The South Carolina Gamecocks (9-3, 5-3) fell from eighteenth to nineteenth in this week’s addition. If Auburn manages to survive the Gamecocks in the SEC title game on Saturday, they’ll move on to the BCS National Championship game against, most likely, the Oregon Ducks (11-0, 9-0). The Ducks are number two in the BCS rankings and will certainly meet an SEC Champion Auburn team in Glendale, Arizona if they secure a Civil War victory. However, should South Carolina defeat the Tigers and be crowned kings of the Southeastern Conference, they are assured their first ever BCS bowl trip and will play in the Nokia Sugar Bowl in New Orleans. A fall still places Carolina as a strong candidate for the Capital One Bowl committee to consider.
