The Notre Dame Fighting Irish remain at number one in the BCS Standings for Week 14. The Irish beat USC last night 22-13 to finish the 2012 regular-season undefeated at 12-0.
The Alabama Crimson Tide (11-1, 7-1 SEC) remain in 2nd place after their 49-0 drubbing of rival Auburn in the Iron Bowl. The win clinched the SEC West for the Crimson Tide, who will now face BCS no. 3 Georgia in the 2012 SEC Championship Game on Saturday at 4 p.m. ET (CBS).
The winner of the Alabama-Georgia game will likely finish 2nd in the rankings, which would pit them against Notre Dame in the 2013 Discover BCS National Championship Game on Jan. 7.
Florida, who beat then no. 10 Florida State 37-26, remained in 4th place by a slim margin. The Gators are finished with their regular-season, so they will be unable to move up to play in the title game. As we mentioned, that spot will likely go to the SEC Championship Game winner.
Oregon, Kansas State, LSU, Stanford, Texas A&M, and South Carolina round out the BCS Top 10.
