The BCS Guru projects that Auburn will move into the No. 1 spot when the BCS standings are released Sunday.
Gene Chizik's Tigers, who were No. 4 in the first BCS standings, will get the nod after their 24-17 victory over Louisiana State, which was No. 6 in the first standings.
Oregon, which defeated UCLA, 60-13, will remain No. 2. Boise State, which had a bye, will remain No. 3. The Broncos have the national stage Tuesday when they play host to Louisiana Tech.
Texas Christian, which drilled Air Force, 38-7, is No. 4. Then comes Michigan State, Missouri, Alabama and Utah. Alabama is the only team in the top eight with a loss.
Wisconsin and LSU complete the projected top 10.
The next five: Oklahoma, Ohio State, Stanford, Nebraska and Florida State.
Earlier in the week, the Guru had a few thoughts on the Pacific 10 Conference's decision to stage its title game on a college campus. He called the move "puzzling and alarming."
