Rob Carr

The Ohio Bobcats are ranked No. 24 in this week's BCS Rankings, while Alabama maintains its stranglehold on the top spot

The Ohio Bobcats are ranked in the BCS standings for the first time in school history.

Ohio is ranked No. 24. The Bobcats did not play this past week but take their perfect 7-0 record into Miami (OH) next Saturday.

The Alabama Crimson Tide hold the top spot in this week's BCS rankings for the second consecutive week following their 44-13 victory over Tennessee. Domination is the name of the game for the Crimson Tide through nine weeks. Alabama is 7-0 on the season, 4-0 in the conference, and has won every game this season by at least 27 points.

Following Alabama at No. 2 is the Florida Gators, who improved to a perfect 7-0 after their 44-11 drubbing of South Carolina. Florida and Alabama are not scheduled to face each other in the regular season, however, they could meet in the SEC Championship if they remain on top of their respective divisions throughout the season.

Kansas State, Oregon and Notre Dame round out the top five. No. 3 Kansas State and No. 4 Oregon swapped positions from last week, while No. 5 Notre Dame remained in the same spot.
