Kansas State is so close to getting to play for its first national title. With two more wins, the Wildcats almost certainly will be headed to the BCS championship game.
The Wildcats (10-0) are up a spot to No. 2 in the new AP poll Sunday.
With its victory at TCU (6-4) and Alabama's loss, K-State is also set to move up a spot in the new BCS standings later Sunday. That would make them No. 1 in that.
Kansas State has games left against Baylor and No. 18 Texas.
The last time the Wildcats were this close to a national title was 1998. They were 11-0 before losing to Texas A&M in the Big 12 championship game. The Aggies, now in the SEC, upset Alabama on Saturday.
You can see the current projections for the BCS Rankings right here:
Oregon is No. 1 in The Associated Press college football poll after Alabama gave up the top spot following a loss to Texas A&M.
The Ducks have 45 of 60 first-place votes. Kansas State is No. 2 with 14 first-place votes. Notre Dame is third and received one first-place vote.
The Crimson Tide, which had been No. 1 for 10 straight weeks, dropped to fourth after a 29-24 loss to the Aggies in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Saturday.
Texas A&M moved up six spots to No. 9.
The Ducks were last No. 1 in 2010. That was the first season in the history of the program that Oregon reached No. 1, and the Ducks spent seven weeks there and reached the BCS championship game, which they lost to Auburn.
No. 25 Kent State is ranked for first time since Nov. 5, 1973.
