Notre Dame's 22-13 victory over USC on Saturday night brought clarity to a crazy college football season and made Sunday's polls as simple as filling out a ballot.
Notre Dame (12-0) was a clear-cut No. 1 in the major polls, with Alabama and Georgia taking the second and third spots.
The battle for the No. 2 position will be solved next weekend in Atlanta when Alabama and Georgia face each other for the Southeastern Conference championship game.
The winner of that contest will play the Irish for the BCS title on Jan. 7 in South Florida.
Notre Dame, the only undefeated team eligible for this year's BCS title, received all 60 first-place votes in Sunday's Associated Press poll.
