NEW YORK (AP) — Notre Dame is No. 1 in The Associated Press college football rankings with nothing left to do but wait to find out who its opponent in the national championship game will be.
The Fighting Irish, now 12-0, beat USC 22-13 Saturday night to earn a berth in the title game against the winner of the SEC Championship game.
Florida moved up a spot to No. 5 after beating Florida State.
Four teams from BCS non-automatic qualifying leagues are ranked. No. 18 Kent State and No. 19 Northern Illinois will play for the Mid-American Conference title Friday. No. 20 Utah State wrapped up its season as Western Athletic Conference champ.
Boise State and No. 22 Northwestern moved back into the rankings.
Toward the bottom of the rankings, there was plenty of movement. Ten Top 25 teams lost this weekend, the most since Oct. 11, 2003.
