Associated Press - October 18, 2009 5:14 PM ET

NEW YORK (AP) - Florida, Alabama and Texas hold the top three spots in the first BCS standings and control their fates in the national championship race.

The Gators are in first, just ahead of the Crimson Tide. Texas is third.

Boise State is fourth, but Broncos still seem to be a long shot to reach the national championship, even if they stay unbeaten.

Unbeaten Cincinnati is fifth and Iowa, also undefeated, is sixth. Both are in good position to pass the Broncos if they keep winning.

Seventh-place Southern California is the highest-rated team with a loss.

Undefeated TCU, vying with Boise State to be reach the big-money bowl games from outside an automatic-qualifying conference, is in eighth place.
