College football rankings, Week 13: Auburn moves up after miraculous win over Georgia

New, 6 comments

The Tigers are 10-1 and will be a top-10 team when the Iron Bowl comes around in two weeks.

John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

After blowing a 20-point fourth-quarter lead and then winning on a fourth-and-18 Hail Mary against Georgia, Auburn moved up one spot to No. 6 in the Associated Press Top 25. In the USA Today Coaches' Poll, which counts toward the BCS standings, the Tigers improved two spots to No. 7.

Stanford fell from fifth in both polls to No. 10 in the AP poll and No. 12 in the coaches' rankings. USC, which knocked off the Cardinal, 20-17, rejoined the rankings. The AP placed them at No. 23, and the coaches slotted them at No. 25. Of course the biggest story is out of Durham, N.C., home of the Duke Blue Devils. Duke upset Miami, 48-30, taking control of the ACC Coastal race and moving into the top 25. The Blue Devils are 25th in the AP poll and 24th in the coaches' poll.
