CFB Post-Week 10 Discussion Thread


Huge weekend of college football action to discuss as some dominoes started to fall (Stanford, Boise State).  Lots of possible scenarios out there with regards to the National Championship game and the BCS bowls in general.

 

Here's my prediction of the BCS bowls (assuming LSU beats Arkansas/Georgia and Oklahoma State beats OU):

  • BCS National Championship - LSU (#1 BCS) vs. Oklahoma State (#2 BCS)
  • Sugar Bowl - Alabama (replacement pick #1) vs. Houston (at-large pick #2 - top non-AQ conference champ)
  • Fiesta Bowl - Oklahoma (replacement pick #2) vs. Stanford (at-large pick #1)
  • Orange Bowl - Clemson (ACC Champ) vs. Cincinnati (Big East Champ)
  • Rose Bowl - Oregon (Pac 12 Champ) vs. Michigan State (Big 10 Champ)

Teams projected to be in the Top 14 of the BCS standings that won't be eligible for BCS selection: Arkansas, South Carolina, Kansas State, and Georgia

At-Large teams in the Top 14 of the BCS standings that will be left out: Virginia Tech, Boise State

 

One thing I just realized that shocked me was that if Houston loses one of its final 3 games, TCU will most likely become an automatic BCS selection as the top non-AQ conference champion in the top 16 of the BCS standings (currently sitting at #19).  They would also have to remain ahead of the Big East champion in the BCS standings (seems likely).  That would be shocking to me considering the fact that this TCU team has two losses and is simply not a great team.
