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?
