Notre Dame is No. 1 and Alabama is No. 2 in both The Associated Press and USA Today college football polls released Sunday, moving to the top of the rankings after Oregon and Kansas State were upset Saturday night.
The Fighting Irish are No. 1 in the AP for the first time since November 14, 1993. The Fighting Irish were a unanimous No. 1, getting all 60 first-place votes. They are a victory against rival Southern California away from completing a perfect regular season and playing in the BCS championship game January 7th in Miami.
A week after being upset as the No. 1 team, Alabama is back to No. 2, taking advantage of the two big upsets. The Ducks had been No. 1, but fell in overtime to Stanford. Kansas State was No. 2 when it was beaten at Baylor.
Nebraska went from 16th to 17th in the AP ranking and stayed at 14th in the USA Today poll following its win over Minnesota.
