Kansas State has pulled into a prime spot behind No. 1 Alabama in an open race spread out among four unbeaten teams.
With the second spot for the BCS National Championship game vacated by Florida after its loss to Georgia a day earlier, the Wildcats are the new No. 2 team in the BCS standings released Sunday.
Notre Dame moved from fifth up to No. 3, while high-scoring Oregon remained No. 4.
The Ducks sit second in both polls used in the BCS calculations -- as well as the AP poll -- but are ranked fifth in the computers, which make up a third of the standings.
Notre Dame, with four games left, faces only one more team with a winning record (USC). Kansas State has three winning teams in its four remaining opponents, though only No. 25 Texas is in the BCS top 25.
