 Two Southeastern Conference teams again hold the top two spots in the BCS standings.

No. 1 Alabama (.9761) and No. 2 Florida (.9092) have the inside track to the Discover BCS National Championship Game in this season's first version of the standings, announced Sunday.

 

 

No. 3 Oregon (.8993) is on the outside looking in, followed by No. 4 Kansas State (.8963) and No. 5 Notre Dame (.8774).

The Crimson Tide and Gators, both 6-0, do not play each other this season but would meet in the SEC Championship Game if both maintain their unbeaten records.

Despite being ranked third in the Harris Poll and fourth in the USA Today poll, Florida got a boost to the second spot by having the nation's best average computer ranking. Notre Dame was second in the computer rankings.

LSU, one of the preseason favorites to make the Jan. 7 title game in Miami, is the highest-ranked team with a loss at No. 6. The Tigers fell to Florida on Oct. 6.
