Baylor, Stanford Cause College Football Chaos

NEW YORK (November 18, 2012)--Notre Dame was No. 1 and Alabama No. 2 in The Associated Press college football poll Sunday, moving to the top of the rankings after Oregon and Kansas State were handed upsets Saturday night by Stanford and Baylor.

The Fighting Irish were No. 1 for the first time since Nov. 14, 1993.

The Fighting Irish were a unanimous No. 1, getting all 60 first-place votes and 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 being upset as the No. 1 team, Alabama was back to No. 2, taking advantage of the two big upsets.

The Ducks had been No. 1 but fell in overtime to Stanford.

Kansas State was No. 2 when it lost to Baylor 52-24 in a lopsided game.
