Alabama's loss to Texas A&M leaves Notre Dame, Kansas State and Oregon as the three only undefeated teams in the top 3 of the BCS rankings after College Football Week 11 wild ending.
But there's no guarantee that Alabama Crimson Tide loss opens up a spot for one of those three undefeated teams. Well maybe a little as Alabama had a huge lead in the BCS standings before it lost on Saturday. It would be interesting to see how far Alabama drops from the BCS standings and how high Aggies will rise. But all Oregon, Kansas State and Notre Dame can do is do what their doing right that is keep winning, and each team took care of business with few problems on Saturday.
Oregon Ducks has set the new NCAA record with its 13th straight game of 40 or more points in defeating Cal Bears 59-17. The record previously held by Texas (2005-06). Oregon at No.2 last week will likey replace Alabama in the top of the AP poll.
Kansas State Quarterback Collin Klein rushed a pair of touchdowns in 23-10 win over TCU to help Kansas State improve to 10-0. An hour later after Alabama upset, the fourth-ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish cleared it's 2012 title hopes in defeating Boston College.
