Alabama and Florida are at the top of the season's first BCS standings, making another all-SEC top two, with Oregon and Kansas State close behind the Gators.
The Crimson Tide in first was no surprise. Alabama is an overwhelming No. 1 in both polls used in the BCS formula.
Florida in second was less anticipated. The Gators are No. 3 in the polls but rated best by the computer rankings. That gave them a slight edge over Oregon and Kansas State when the numbers were crunched. Florida's BCS average is .9092. Oregon's is .8993 and Kansas State's is .8963.
Notre Dame is fifth and not too far back at .8774.
AP Top 25: The top five in The Associated Press college football poll has been rearranged for a second straight week, with Florida, Kansas State and Notre Dame moving up in the rankings.
No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Oregon hold the top two spots for a fourth straight week. The changes came behind them, where the Gators move up one spot to No. 3, and the fourth-ranked Wildcats and fifth-ranked Fighting Irish both jump two places. South Carolina fell 23-21 at LSU on Saturday night and drops from No. 3 to No. 9. West Virginia slides from No. 5 to No. 17 after getting routed 49-14 at Texas Tech. The Red Raiders move into the rankings at 18th.
USC: Quarterback Matt Barkley insisted there was nothing wrong after Southern California's 24-14 win over Washington on Saturday night that included a scoreless second half for the Trojans and Barkley's fewest completions (10) in a game since late in his sophomore season.
"They didn't want to get beat over the top, and they knew the threats we had with Marqise (Lee) and Robert (Woods) so they played very deep and played a lot of two high defenses which forced us to run the ball, which we did very well," Barkley said. "It just happened to be one of those games."
Barkley attempted only 10 passes in the second half, completing just three.
Ohio State: Coach Urban Meyer understands better than anyone that if the Buckeyes (7-0) are going to keep winning, they must figure out how to close out games.
"I have to get more involved and find out what the issues are," the coach said after the Buckeyes' latest great escape, a 52-49 victory at Indiana on Saturday. "I know injuries are an issue. When you take your starting fullback and start him at inside linebacker, you have a little problem. I don't think you can pinpoint any one thing right now. I have got to find out. I am going to increase my involvement with the defense."
Notre Dame: The Irish have used two quarterbacks in almost every game this season. It might be a different duo against Brigham Young this Saturday. Everett Golson suffered a concussion late in the fourth quarter against Stanford on Saturday, but coach Brian Kelly thinks Golson will be able to play against the Cougars.
Golson still had some concussion symptoms Sunday and will undergo further tests Monday, Kelly said.
Kelly expects Golson to be cleared to practice by Tuesday. If Golson can't play, Kelly said Tommy Rees and Andrew Hendrix could see time.
Minnesota: Coach Jerry Kill has been released from the hospital one day after he had a seizure in the locker room after a loss to Northwestern.
University physician Dr. Pat Smith issued a statement Sunday saying Kill has been treated and is "in excellent health."
Kill has struggled with seizures for years, including several times last season in his first year with Minnesota. He has never missed a game because of seizures, and Smith says the coach plans to be back in the office Monday.
