Too soon to call, but things are looking up for Alabama.
Alabama and Oklahoma State are awaiting word on which team will play LSU in the BCS national championship game on Jan. 9 in New Orleans.
The returns have been trickling in Sunday, and so far the Crimson Tide seems to be in the lead.
In the USA Today coaches' poll, Alabama was No. 2, but the commanding lead it had last week is now down to 22 points. The coaches' poll and the Harris poll count for two-thirds of a team's BCS score.
The Harris poll was due out later Sunday.
A compilation of six computer rating will determine the final third of a BCS score. The Sagarin ratings released early Sunday had Alabama No. 2 and Oklahoma State No. 3.
