Back in the Hunt

TIDESPORTS Premium Recruiting: The latest UA recruiting scoop from Andrew Bone
TUSCALOOSA | The University of Alabama football team benefitted from a pair of stunning upsets Saturday night that could potentially vault a one-loss Crimson Tide squad back into the BCS National Championship Game in Miami.
Baylor defeated visiting Kansas State 52-24 for the first of those upsets, knocking the No.1-ranked Wildcats from the ranks of the unbeaten. Less than an hour later, Stanford connected on an overtime field goal from 37 yards that capped a 17-14 road win over Oregon.
Those two games will leave just one unbeaten - Notre Dame - at the top of the polls. The BCS standings, a mix of computer and poll input, are likely to place the Irish in the No.1 spot. Alabama, which entered play Saturday ranked No.4 in the BCS standings, could move into the No.2 spot Sunday when the standings are released. ESPN BCS analyst Brad Edwards projected via twitter that the Crimson Tide would move into the No.2 BCS position, followed by Georgia, Florida and Oregon at No.5.
Alabama can clinch the Southeastern Conference West with a win over Auburn next weekend, and would then face Georgia in the SEC title game in Atlanta.
Notre Dame's final game is against Southern Cal.
With the news, the twitter feeds of Crimson Tide players lit up quickly. Here were a few initial twitter reactions:
