NEW YORK (AP) -- Kansas State and Oregon are now on course to play for the BCS national championship. After Alabama was upset by Texas A&M, the new BCS standings have the Wildcats (.9674) first and the Ducks (.9497) second.

Notre Dame (.9396) is third, not too far behind, but most likely in need of a loss by Oregon or Kansas State to reach the title game on Jan. 7 in Miami.

As for Alabama's run at three championships in four seasons, and the Southeastern Conference's string of six straight BCS titles, both need help to continue.

The Ducks were ranked No. 1 in both the AP and USA Today Coache's polls.

Oregon State was ranked No. 16 in the BCS poll.
