Oregon passed Florida State and moved into second place behind two-time defending national champion Alabama in the latest BCS standings.

The Seminoles had a slim lead on the Ducks in the first standings last week, and a convincing 42-14 victory over UCLA gave Oregon the boost it needed. Florida State beat North Carolina State 49-17.

The Seminoles have a chance to gain on Oregon this week when they play seventh-place Miami on Saturday. The Ducks' next game is at fifth-place Stanford on Thursday, Nov. 7.

Ohio State is still in fourth place after a 63-14 rout of Penn State.

The Associated Press poll has Alabama No. 1, followed by Oregon, Florida State, Ohio State, Baylor and Stanford.
