Irving, TX (Sports Network) - Alabama sits at its usual perch atop the BCS standings, which were released Sunday for the first time this season.

The two-time reigning BCS champion Crimson Tide have been nothing short of spectacular in rolling to a perfect 7-0 record, outscoring their opponents, 201-16, over the past five games.

The dominating display has Alabama No. 1 in the USA Today and Harris Poll and an overall BCS composite of .984.

The second spot in the original standings went to Florida State (6-0, .935) following its thorough 51-14 blowout of former title contender Clemson on Saturday.

The strength of the Seminoles' schedule gave them the No. 1 spot in the computer rankings and a slight edge over Oregon (7-0), which sits third at .932 despite not being seriously tested thus far.

That may change Saturday when the Ducks host UCLA.

A weekend full of upsets resulted in a lot of changes in the polls, as Clemson, UCLA, LSU, Texas A&M and Louisville all lost.

Ten unbeaten teams remain, including Ohio State and Missouri, which came in at fourth and fifth, respectively, in the BCS poll.

Stanford, Miami-Florida, Baylor, Clemson and Texas Tech round out the top-10, while potential BCS busters Fresno State (6-0) and Northern Illinois (7-0) sit at 17 and 18, respectively. Stanford is the highest ranked one-loss team.

This is the final year the national championship will be determined by the BCS standings, which factor in the USA Today Poll, the Harris Poll and six computer rankings.

A highly anticipated four-team playoff will be installed for the 2014 season.

Alabama and Notre Dame played in the BCS final last year, and the Crimson Tide won handily, 42-14, en route to their third championship in four years. The win also extended the SEC's streak to seven consecutive national champions.
