LSU-Alabama Round 2 is just a few victories away.

A weekend filled with upsets left the Southeastern Conference rivals in the top two spots in the BCS standings released Sunday.

And Arkansas is third, further increasing the possibility of an all-SEC BCS championship game Jan. 9 in New Orleans that would be a rematch of a regular-season game.

Though if the Tigers can beat Arkansas on Saturday, then Georgia in the SEC title game on Dec. 3, and the Crimson Tide beat Auburn on Saturday, it’s almost a lock that LSU-Alabama will play again, this time at the Superdome.

LSU beat Alabama 9-6 in overtime Nov. 6 in Tuscaloosa.

Oklahoma State, which suffered the most surprising loss of the weekend, fell to fourth place.

The rest of the Top 10 are: Virginia Tech, Stanford, Boise State. Houston, Oklahoma and Oregon. Undefeated Houston is the only non-BCS school.

Oklahoma and Oregon both were knocked out of the national title chase with losses to Baylor and USC, respectively, late Saturday night.
