College Football Rankings: Auburn No. 1, Big East Shut Out

Auburn is the college football national champion. That was obvious Monday night after the Tigers defeated Oregon 22-19, in the BCS National Championship game. The voters have now confirmed that, easily placing Auburn No. 1 in the final rankings. Auburn (14-0) got 56 of 59 first-place. TCU (13-0) got the other three.

Here are the complete final AP top 25 rankings:

1    Auburn (56)    14-0  
2    TCU (3)    13-0   
3    Oregon    12-1   
4    Stanford    12-1   
5    Ohio State    12-1   
6    Oklahoma    12-2   
7    Wisconsin    11-2   
8    LSU    11-2    1,051   
9    Boise State    12-1   
10    Alabama    10-3   
11    Nevada    13-1  
12    Arkansas    10-3   
13    Oklahoma State    11-2 
14    Michigan State    11-2   
15    Mississippi State    9-4   
16    Virginia Tech    11-3  
17    Florida State    10-4 
18    Missouri    10-3 
19    Texas A&M    9-4  
20    Nebraska    10-4  
21    UCF    11-3      
22    South Carolina    9-5 
23    Maryland    9-4    1 
24    Tulsa    10-3   
25    North Carolina State    9-4

Notice what is missing in there? Not a single Big East Conference team in the top 25, the only conference with an automatic BCS bid not to have a team ranked in the final poll. West Virginia (16 votes) and Connecticut (eight votes) were honorable mentions. Syracuse University did not receive any votes in the final poll despite its victory over Kansas State in the Pinstripe Bowl.

The Big East, of course, will be getting a boost when TCU, No. 2 in the final rankings, leaves the Mountain West to join the conference in 2012.
