Now Notre Dame is an ahead of Oregon in the BCS standings.
The Fighting Irish became the latest team to move past Oregon on Sunday, taking third place behind Alabama and Kansas State. The Ducks remained fourth.
Florida fell out of the top five with a 17-9 loss to Georgia, helping to set the field in the race for the BCS title game with a month to go in the regular season.
Alabama is locked in at No. 1, and if the Crimson Tide keep winning it will play for its third championship in four years. The Wildcats (.9400), Fighting Irish (.9147) and Ducks (.9136) need to remain unbeaten, and keep an eye on each other.
The computers ratings are still holding the Ducks back because their strength of schedule lags behind the other contenders.
Georgia is up four spots to No. 6 in the standings, South Carolina moved up to No. 8, and Clemson is up to No. 13.
