If the college football regular season ended today the Kansas State Wildcats and Oregon Ducks would be playing for the BCS national championship.
The new BCS standings have the Wildcats (.9674) No.1 and the Ducks (,9497) No.2 after Alabama was upset by Texas A&M.
Notre Dame (.9396) is No.3 while Alabama drops (.853) to No.4.
The Wildcats have two games left, at Baylor Saturday and home against Texas on Dec. 1.
The Ducks final two games are, Stanford at home Saturday then at Oregon State the following week. The Ducks will play either UCLA or Southern California in the PAC-12 conference title game if they beat Stanford to win the PAC-12 North.
Kansas State and Oregon will play for the national title if they can avoid an upset.
"Notre Dame is not going to jump (Oregon and Kansas State) without their help," Jerry Palm said. "They're way too far behind in the polls. The voters are not on board with Notre Dame."
