    So it looks like Florida State is going to the BCS championship game (played on 01.06.2014 in the Rose Bowl.)
    If Ohio State recovers - they will also go to the BCS championship game.

    Auburn won the SEC - so they automatically go to the Sugar Bowl.
    Baylor won the Big 12 - so they automatically go to the Fiesta Bowl.
    Assuming Stanford holds on to win the Pac-12 - they automatically go to the Rose Bowl.
    UCF won the American Athletic Conference (formerly the Big East) - so they automatically get a BCS bowl.

    Florida State is the BCS #1 - and they are going to win the ACC - so the Orange Bowl will get the #1 pick from the qualified "at large" teams to take the place of Florida State. (Do you think Alabama will get that invite?)

    Ohio State is the BCS #2 - and they are going to win the Big 10 - so the Rose Bowl will get the #2 pick from the remaining qualified "at large" teams to take the place of Ohio State. (Will they pick Michigan State - just to keep Pac-12/Big-10 bowl history intact?)


    The "at large" pool is going to be a real bear this year. LOTS of 2-loss teams. (And Missouri, S. Carolina, and LSU eliminated as only 2 BCS teams per conference!)

    Alabama (11-1)
    Oklahoma State (10-2)
    Michigan State (assuming OSU wins) (11-2) - lost conference championship game
    Arizona State (10-3) - lost conference championship game
    Oregon (10-2)
    Clemson (10-2)
    Northern Illinois (11-1) - lost conference championship game
    Oklahoma (10-2)


    What are your predictions?

    Assuming OSU and FSU win:

    Sugar: Auburn-OU
    Orange: Clemson-Bama
    Rose: MSU-Stanford/ASU
    Fiesta: Baylor-UCF

    I assume the OU you are referring to is Oklahoma, not Oregon?

    If Ohio State loses - it gets all screwy.

    Michigan State still goes to the Rose Bowl - but Ohio State probably gets an at-large BCS bid.

    Michigan State vs Stanford would be pretty fun to watch. Auburn vs FSU would be as well.

    Great Rose Bowl matchup. FSU likely wins by 10-14.

    That would be a good old-fashioned game and it sounds like that's what the Rose Bowl will be if Stanford wins, regardless of what happens in the B10 CCG.

    FSU up 24-0 early in the 3rd. Thanks for playing, Duke, you can go back to basketball now.

    Duke was playing well early on, they just don't have the athletes to compete with FSU. Not many do..

    They held their own for about a quarter.

    Well Michigan State threw a big wrench in the BCS.

    Auburn / FSU to title game

    Stanford / Michigan State to Rose
    Alabama to Sugar v. ??? (Ohio State?)
    Baylor to Fiesta v. UCF

    Who goes to the Orange Bowl now?

    My guess:

    NC: FSU v. AU

    Orange: UA (first pick to replace FSU) v. OU/OSU (first at-large pick)

    Sugar: OSU/OU (second pick to replace AU) v. Clemson (second at-large pick)

    Fiesta: Baylor (B12 champ) v. UCF (****ed with the third at-large pick)

    Rose: MSU (B10) v. Stanford (P12)

    I think the Sugar will take OSU because they travel well, but they might take OU, I suspect the Orange will take the other. Too bad the Fiesta has the third at-large pick this year, I think Oregon might have been a possibility there. Oh well.

    EDIT: Just read the rules closer, and it looks like the Orange can't take Alabama because it can't replace it's champion with a team from the conference of the number 2 team. So, I'll go with Mandel's picks.

    I hope Michigan State beats the stuffing out of Stanford.

    Oklahoma is good enough for an at large bid? What?

    Was my first reaction too. Had no idea they would be in the conversation. Oregon screwed themselves losing to Arizona though. OU will travel better.

    Yeah, Oregon screwed themselves, just sucks to see the Big 10, Big 12, and ACC getting 2 teams in. Oklahoma has been so ****ty this season, hard to imagine nobody from the P12 was better.

    MNC: Florida St/Auburn
    Rose: Furd/Michigan State
    Orange: Ohio State (replacement pick)/Clemson (first at large pick)
    Sugar: Alabama (replacement pick)/Oklahoma/Oregon/Oklahoma State (at large pick)
    Fiesta: Bailer (**** Bailer)/Central Florida (last at large pick)

    Sugar probably goes with a Big XII team (probably the land thieves) over Oregon, probably the best team available. OTOH, with Bama in New Orleans, selling tickets may be less of a priority than usual, and Oregon probably brings a better TV rating.

    EDIT: Just saw Mandel's tweet. Guess the land thieves may luck out, at least until Bama woodsheds them.

    OU only had 2 losses just like Oregon. And as you noted OU will travel better than the trendy Oregon "fans".

    It's that nobody from the P12 travels as well, certainly not to New Orleans or Miami, and the Fiesta gets stuck with UCF.

    If the pairings end up like the "experts" think they will, the Fiesta Bowl is going to suck. Baylor fans suck. UCF fans won't travel. Game will suck.

    I think that pairing is pretty much locked in. Bailer (**** Bailer) has an automatic bid, and Fiesta has the last pick to fill the other spot. They're going to get stuck with UCF unless the Orange or Sugar goes crazy and takes them first.

    Common denominator? The CFKA the Big East, which has no business as an AQ conference.
