For one week, at least, No. 1 is clear, and it's Notre Dame.
Already named the nation's top team by the Associated Press (unanimously) and the coaches (56 of 59 first-place votes), the BCS officially anointed Notre Dame the team to beat Sunday night.
The interesting part of the standings is what followed -- how the BCS would sort out the SEC contenders. Alabama came in at No. 2, followed by Georgia at No. 3. Those rankings don't matter much, however, as the two are on a collision course to meet in the SEC championship game -- the Tide face Auburn first, while Georgia has Georgia Tech -- and the winner of that conference championship game will meet Notre Dame in the national championship game, as long as the Irish beat USC on Saturday.
Florida was slotted at No. 4, while Oregon plummeted down to No. 5 following its overtime loss to Stanford and Kansas State dropped from No. 1 to No. 6 with its blowout loss to Baylor.
The BCS Top 10:
1. Notre Dame
6. Kansas State
9. Texas A&M
10. Florida State
