The Tigers jumped the Ducks for the No. 1 spot in the Associated Press poll after their SEC championship game rout of South Carolina on Saturday. Auburn got 36 first-place votes to Oregon's 23. Those numbers were flipped last week.
It's the first time the Tigers have been No. 1 in the AP poll since 1985.
Auburn has six victories this season against teams ranked in the AP Top 25. Outside of the SEC West, no other team has more than two.
The Ducks remained No. 1 in the USA Today coaches' poll, although the Tigers closed the gap. Auburn gained 14 first-place votes, bringing its total to 24. Oregon had 34 first-place votes and maintained a 13-point lead in the poll.
The official BCS pairings will be released tonight. The selection show starts at 8:15 p.m. ET.
The Harris Interactive poll, which is part of the BCS formula along with the coaches' poll, will be released later today.
