Contenders stay unbeaten, BCS stays same

NEW YORK (AP) - After a weekend when all the national championship contenders stayed undefeated, the BCS standings were unchanged.

Florida is first, Alabama second and Texas third on Sunday.

The Gators will play in the Southeastern Conference championship Saturday for one spot in the BCS national title game. The Longhorns can earn the other spot with a victory against Nebraska in the Big 12 title game.

Hoping for a Texas loss are fourth-place TCU, which finished its regular-season 12-0, and fifth-place Cincinnati, which can boost it's ranking by beating Pittsburgh for the Big East championship.

Sixth-place Boise State (12-0) will be rooting for Texas. The Broncos play New Mexico State and likely need the Longhorns to win to ensure themselves an at-large BCS berth.
