Boise State gains ground on TCU

NEW YORK - Boise State narrowed the gap on TCU in the BCS standings and put itself in position to pass the Horned Frogs down the stretch.

Oregon and Auburn are still in the top two spots in the standings released last night. TCU remained third after an unconvincing win.

The Horned Frogs played their closest game of the season, a 40-35 victory against San Diego State in which they allowed the Aztecs back in the game with two long fourth-quarter touchdown passes.
