Ranking is what is used to determine the position on the backlog.  If you complete a sprint and any work not completed would go to the back of the backlog (as it was ranked higher because it was in the sprint) unless you have another sprint open.  In that case and incomplete work from a prior sprint will go to the next sprint.
