However, Oregon is gaining ground. The Ducks have jumped over Notre Dame to take the third spot.

Oregon is coming off its biggest victory of the season, winning 62-51 at Southern California on Saturday night. That result, combined with Notre Dame's overtime victory against a middling Pittsburgh team, helped nudge the Ducks by the Irish this week.
Alabama is a solid No. 1 in the human polls and in the computers. They control their own destiny.
Kansas State is third in the polls and in the computers. They remain ahead of Oregon in the BCS because the computers have the Ducks ranked fifth.
Oregon has a tough schedule down the stretch. Many experts believe the Ducks will eventually pass Kansas State if both teams remain unbeaten.
The Ducks play at California on Saturday before finishing their regular season against two teams in the BCS top 15, Stanford and Oregon State. If they get to the Pac-12 title game, UCLA or USC would be the likely opponent. Both are in the BCS top 20.
Kansas State is at TCU and Baylor the next two weeks, before finishing with Texas on Dec. 1. The Longhorns are 17th in the BCS standings.
