    Top spots stay same in USA TODAY/ESPN Top 25 poll
    McLEAN, Va. (SportsTicker) — If the coaches have their way, Southern California and Oklahoma will meet in the Orange Bowl for the national championship.
    One coach split his vote three ways — giving one-third of a first-place vote for the three unbeaten teams from the power conferences — USC (12-0), Oklahoma (12-0) and Auburn (12-0).

    But Auburn is on the outside looking in at No. 3 with 9 1/3 first-place votes and 1,435 points in the latest USA TODAY/ESPN coaches poll released Sunday. (Related item: USA TODAY/ESPN Top 25 poll)

    The Bowl Championship Series officially will announce its invitations Sunday afternoon and it is likely that USC will be matched against Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl for the national championship on Jan. 4.

    USC, which edged UCLA, 29-24 on Saturday, lost more than 12 first-place votes, but finished with 35 1/3 and 1,490 points.

    Oklahoma made the biggest improvement after a 42-3 rout of Colorado in the Big 12 Conference championship game, receiving 10 1/3 more first-place votes from the previous week for a total of 16 1/3 and 1,459 points.

    USC and Oklahoma are also 1-2 in the Associated Press poll with Auburn, which beat Tennessee, 38-28 in the Southeastern Conference championship game on Saturday, at No. 3.

    California (10-1) remained in fourth place with 1,286 points - five more than fifth-ranked Texas (10-1) — and is hoping for an at-large BCS bowl berth. Cal also is fourth in the AP poll.

    Last week, Cal held a 48-point lead over Texas.

    Utah (11-0) of the Mountain West Conference and Boise State (11-0) of the Big West Conference were the other unbeaten teams in Division I-A. Utah remains No. 6 and likely will become the first team from a non-power conference to play in a BCS bowl game. Boise State still is No. 10.

    If Cal and Utah receive the two BCS at-large bids, likely to the Rose and Fiesta Bowls, respectively, Texas would be the odd team out.

    Georgia (9-2) is seventh, followed by Louisville (10-1) and Virginia Tech (10-2), which beat Miami to win the Atlantic Coast Conference title.

    Louisiana State (9-2) is 11th, followed by Michigan (9-2), Iowa (9-2), Miami (8-3), Florida State (8-3), Wisconsin (9-2), Tennessee (9-3), Virginia (8-3), Florida (7-4) and Pittsburgh (8-3).

    Texas Tech (7-4), Ohio State (7-4), West Virginia (8-3), Arizona State (8-3) and Texas A&M (7-4) complete the poll.

    1/3 of a vote for 1st place? Looks like someone voted Auburn, USC and OU, 1a, 1b and 1c.

    Edit: Damnit I suck today, guess I should've read the story.
