Florida State finished the regular season as No. 1 in The Associated Press college football poll, and Auburn has reached No. 2.

The Seminoles and Tigers likely wrapped up spots in the BCS championship game by winning their conference title games Saturday night. The BCS bowl matchups will be revealed Sunday night (8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN).

Florida State received 56 first-place votes from the media panel. Auburn received the remaining four first-place votes.

Alabama is No. 3 in the last rankings until after the bowls. Michigan State jumped six spots to No. 4 after beating Ohio State for the Big Ten title.

No. 5 Stanford is the Pac-12 champion for the second straight season.

No. 6 Baylor won the Big 12 and Ohio State slipped to No. 7 after its first loss since the 2011 season.

The AP poll is not used in the formula that determines the BCS standings. The BCS is calculated by combining the averages of three factors: the USA Today coaches' poll, the Harris poll, and an average of six computer ratings. Each factor counts for one-third in the BCS calculations.

The coaches' poll had the same top four as the AP poll, while Baylor was No. 5, Ohio State sixth and Stanford seventh.

Florida State was an unanimous No. 1 selection in the coaches' poll.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
