Notre Dame ends regular season No. 1

Posted: Updated:

UNDATED (AP) - Notre Dame ends the regular season as the No. 1 team in the AP college football poll. It's the first time the Fighting Irish have done that since their national championship season in 1988.

Notre Dame finished up a perfect 12-0 regular season last week and will play Alabama in the BCS championship game in Miami on Jan. 7.

The one-loss Crimson Tide remains No. 2 after slipping past Georgia in Saturday's SEC championship game.

Undefeated Ohio State, which is banned from the postseason because of NCAA sanctions, moves up a spot to No. 3. Florida is No. 4, Oregon is fifth and Georgia falls to sixth.

The rest of the top 10 remains the same with Kansas State, Stanford, LSU and Texas A&M at seven through ten.

South Carolina remained in the 11th spot.  Clemson moved up from 15th to 14th.

    Dylan Thompson threw for three touchdowns and No. 24 South Carolina's maligned defense stood strong on a fourth-quarter goal line stand to topple No. 6 Georgia 38-35 on Saturday night.
    No. 24 South Carolina's defense showed it's not nearly as bad as it looked two weeks ago - and maybe that No. 6 Georgia isn't the runaway favorite in the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division.

    Georgia can establish itself as a top-tier beast if it gets by South Carolina this weekend - and USC would drop to 0-2 in the league with a loss. Tennessee travels to Oklahoma, where Coach Bob Stoops doesn't believe the SEC is all-powerful.
