Kansas State remained No. 3 in the latest Associated Press college football poll. The Wildcats entered Sunday as the No. 2 team in the Bowl Championship Series standings. The latest BCS standings will be released later Sunday.

After being tested for the first time this season Alabama and Oregon have held their spots at the top in the AP poll.

A thrilling Saturday produced some great finishes but no upsets and few changes among the highest ranked teams.

Alabama, which scored late to beat LSU 21-17, is No. 1 for the 10th straight week. Oregon beat Southern California 62-51 and is No. 2 for the seventh consecutive week.

Kansas State remains at No. 3 after beating Oklahoma State 44-30, and Notre Dame stays at No. 4 after rallying to beat Pittsburgh 29-26 in triple overtime. K-State increased its margin over Notre Dame by three points from last week.

Ohio State and Georgia are tied for fifth.

No. 19 Texas and No. 24 Rutgers moved back into the rankings, and No. 23 Toledo is ranked for the first time since 2001.

K-State is also No. 3 in the coaches poll.
