Well, Gamedayr Nation, the Alabama Crimson Tide has solidified its spot as the nation’s No. 2 team, having escaped an extremely well-played SEC Championship game against Georgia, 32-28.

The BCS top five will change; despite the fact that Georgia fought Nick Saban’s squad to the very end, the Dawgs’ second loss will drop them below several one-loss squads. In fact, the loss will drop coach Mark Richt’s crew out of the BCS bowls altogether.

Oregon, with all of its talent, was off this weekend, forced to watch Stanford win the Pac-12 Championship over UCLA, 27-24. The Big 12’s one loss team, Kansas State, demolished then-No. 18 Texas, 42-24.

1. Notre Dame

2. Alabama

3. Florida

4. Oregon

5. Kansas State

The BCS standings will be released Sunday night. We will keep you updated here on the new rankings.
