Tide Still Second in BCS Behind Gators

NEW YORK (AP) - Iowa and Penn State ended their seasons eligible
for an at-large BCS selection, and Oklahoma State and Virginia Tech
are also in position to become eligible for big-money bowl bids.

The top seven teams in the BCS standings released Sunday were
unchanged from last week, with Florida, Alabama and Texas still in
control of the destinies in the national championship race.

Barring any major upsets over the next two weeks, the winner of
the Florida-Alabama Southeastern Conference title game will face
Texas in the BCS title game on Jan. 7 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena,

With fourth-place TCU a victory away from securing an automatic
BCS bid and the loser of Florida-Alabama a lock to be selected,
only two at-large berths would remain.
