No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia, both easy winners in rivalry games Saturday, held their spots in the rankings and will play for the SEC title in Atlanta next weekend.

Ohio State remained No. 4 after completing its perfect season with a victory against Michigan. The Buckeyes (12-0) are banned from the postseason because of NCAA sanctions.

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. 25 Boise State will play for a share of the Mountain West title against Nevada on Saturday.

The Big East had two teams fall out of the rankings, Rutgers and Louisville. The Scarlet Knights and Cardinals will play Thursday night with the Big East title and BCS bid on the line.
