2) Kansas State  (0.9318)
3) Oregon  (0.9166)
4) Notre Dame  (0.9050)
5) Georgia
6) Florida
7) LSU
8) South Carolina
9) Louisville
10) Florida State


The BCS rankings are determined by computer rankings, the AP Poll, and the USA Today Coaches' Poll. Those three are equally weighted in the BCS rankings.

Earlier Sunday, the Associated Press and the USA Today Coaches polls were released. The following shows the team, the (number) of first place votes, the team's season record, the number of total points, and last week's ranking:
