Notre Dame is the beneficiary of losses by the top two teams in last week's AP poll.
The Fighting Irish jump two slots to No. 1 -- and it's unanimous. It's Notre Dame's first time at the top since 1993.They are a victory against rival Southern California away from completing a perfect regular season and playing in the BCS championship game Jan. 7 in Miami.
A week after dropping from 1 to 4 following their first loss, Alabama moves up to No. 2, followed by one-loss Georgia and undefeated Ohio State.
Oregon falls from first to fifth while Kansas State drops from 2 to 7. Florida sits at No. 6.
LSU, Texas A&M and Florida State continue the round out the top 10.
