NEW YORK • No. 3 Kansas State and No. 4 Notre Dame each moved up a spot in The Associated Press and USA Today college football polls, setting up a final four of sorts for the last month of the regular season.

Alabama remained No. 1 in both the AP and the USA Today polls. The Crimson Tide received all 60 first-place votes in the AP poll, and 59 votes in the USA Today poll. Oregon is No. 2 in both polls.

Florida's 17-9 loss on Saturday to Georgia dropped the Gators five spots to No. 8 and allowed Kansas State and Notre Dame each to move up a spot after victories in the AP poll.

Now the top four are all undefeated and none will play any other the rest of the way.

LSU is No. 5 in both polls, followed by Ohio State and Georgia, in the AP poll and Georgia and Florida State in the USA Today poll. —
