Deciding which should be oxidizing and reducing agent

When you are picking which is the oxidizing and reducing agent when both have positive standard reduction potentials you should make the smallest number the one that is being oxidized right?

Yes, the species that gets oxidized should have the lower of the two standard reduction potentials.
