TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - One week after fans in Oregon, Kansas and South Bend celebrated as the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide fell to Texas A&M, there is just one unbeaten team left.
Kansas State and Oregon - who entered the weekend ranked No. 1 and 2, respectively - both lost on Saturday night, moving Notre Dame to No. 1 in the BCS for the first time in school history.
The losses also moved the Southeastern Conference back into prime position to appear in the BCS National Championship Game for what would be a seventh-consecutive season.
Alabama moves up to No. 2, with Georgia at No. 3 and Florida at No. 4.
The Ducks dropped to No. 4 after an overtime loss to now-eighth-ranked Stanford.
The Fighting Irish close their season out on Saturday on the road against Southern Cal.
Barring a season-ending upset by either Auburn (vs Alabama) or Georgia Tech (vs Georgia), it does appear that the SEC Champion will likely be heading to the National Championship Game in Miami.
Florida State, who plays No. 4 Florida on Saturday, is ranked fifth and sixth by the Coaches' and Harris Polls, respectively, but is only No. 10 in the BCS Rankings thanks to the computers. The Coaches', Harris and Computer rankings are all counted equally towards a team's BCS Ranking.
The winner of that game on Saturday - along with No. 5 Oregon - could be in the best position of any should Notre Dame, Alabama and/or Georgia fall victim to the upset bug this weekend.
Mississippi State is ranked in the Top 25 of the AP Poll, Coaches' Poll and the Harris Poll, but did not crack the BCS Top 25.
