NEW YORK (AP) _ With three weeks left to decide which teams will play for the national title, it's Oregon against the Big 12 in a BCS battle.

LSU moved into the first place in the Bowl Championship Series standings today and the Ducks jumped into second place, a day after Ohio State was upset by Illinois.

With three games remaining, including the Southeastern Conference championship game on December 1st, LSU will likely reach the BCS title game in New Orleans by winning out.

The Ducks have three games left but they'll have to watch their backs with three Big 12 teams looming, led by third-place Kansas.

If the Ducks struggle to a victory in its final games it could open up an opportunity for Kansas. Or fourth-place Oklahoma. Or fifth-place Missouri.
