Notre Dame became the latest team to move past Oregon in the Bowl Championship Series standings, taking third place behind leader Alabama and Kansas State.

The Ducks remained fourth Sunday.

Florida fell from second to seventh with a 17-9 loss to Georgia, helping to set the field in the race for the BCS National Championship Game with a month to go in the regular season.

Alabama is locked in at No. 1, and if it keeps winning will play for its third championship in four years. Kansas State moved up a spot to second.

Notre Dame, a 30-13 winner as an underdog Saturday at Oklahoma, jumped two places from fifth. A week earlier, Kansas State moved in front of Oregon.

Oregon is second in the Harris Interactive and USA Today coaches polls, but the Ducks are fifth in computer rankings because of a perceived weaker schedule than some of the other unbeaten teams.

Note

• Idaho dismissed quarterback Dominique Blackman and linebacker Conrad Scheidt for violating team rules.

Meanwhile, Vandals tight end Taylor Elmo of Yakima was suspended for violating athletic-department policy.
