Auburn No. 2 in polls, closing gap on Oregon

Auburn is still No. 2 in the Associated Press, USA Today coaches' and Harris Interactive polls, but it's closing the gap on top-ranked Oregon.

The Tigers, who beat Georgia 49-31 Saturday, moved within 42 points of the top-ranked Ducks in the AP poll. Last week, the gap was 88.

Auburn got 12 first-place votes this week, up from two. Oregon, which narrowly beat California 15-13, watched its first-place vote total drop from 49 to 38.

The Tigers' had less of a gain in the coaches' poll, trimming the Ducks' advantage from 74 points to 60. Auburn had six first-place votes, up from four last week.

Boise State jumped TCU in both polls for the No. 3 spot. LSU is fifth in the AP poll. Wisconsin is fifth in the coaches' poll.

Auburn is second in the Harris poll, getting 35 first-place votes out of 114. It trails Oregon by 55 points.

The AP poll is not a part of the BCS formula. The coaches' and Harris polls are.

The BCS rankings come out tonight at 8:15 p.m. ET.

At this point, the polls don't really matter. All Auburn has to do is keep winning. Three games left in the season. Win them all and the polls will take care of themselves.
