NIU jumped two spots Sunday and Fresno State slipped one to 16th.
The top three teams in the BCS standings were unchanged: Alabama, Florida State and Ohio State - the remaining undefeated teams in BCS automatic qualifying conferences.
The other major college unbeatens, Northern Illinois and Fresno State, are fighting for one automatic bid. They have to finish in the top 12 of the last BCS standings, which comes out Dec. 8, or finish in the top 16 while ranking ahead of an AQ-conference champion.
Central Florida is in position to win the American Athletic Conference auto-bid, but is 19th in the latest standings.
