Update - Well the one that Matters is out.
NIU jumped over Fresno in the BCS rankings by moving from 16 down to 14 while the Bulldogs fell from 15 to 16. The Huskies will take a big SOS hit with WMU next week but if both Fresno and NIU win out it's hard to see the Huskies not being the top group of five team this season.
Ohio State has a couple of solid games coming up but right now it seems the the championship game is going to be Between Alabama and Florida State unless something happens to either team.
Baylor's loss might have destroyed their hopes for a shot at the national championship but it did not move them out of the top ten.
In the AP poll Baylor is ninth, dropping 6 spots after Oklahoma State took control in the Big12. As a reward for the win the Cowboys moved up 4 spots to 11th.
In some what UB related news Northern Illinois gained ground on Fresno. The Huskies moved from 18th to 20th while Fresno held fell from 15th to 16th. NIU has had a computer poll lead over Fresno for some time but the Human polls are 2/3rds of the BCS equation.
Every spot NIU picks up in the human polls makes it that much more likely that they may catch the Bulldogs in the BCS rankings.

On the coaches side of things Baylor was punished even less for the loss. The bears are #8 in that poll.
NIU was bumped up one spot for beating 7-4 Toledo while Fresno was bumped thee spots up for beating 3-8 New Mexico. So in the minds of coaches the only way for NIU to pass Fresno is for the Bull Dogs to lose... Go Boise!
