    KSU has a pretty easy path to the BCS title game. Only remaining road games @ TCU and @ Baylor. Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, and Texas all go to Manhattan. No conference championship game.

    Florida has Georgia this week, ends the regular season @ Florida State, then likely plays Alabama in the SEC Championship game.

    Oregon still plays @ USC and @ Oregon State. They host Stanford for their Senior Day. If they win those games they'll likely have to play USC again for the Pac 12 championship game.

    Notre Dame will get hammered this weekend in Norman.

    That game in Fort Worth could be the stumbling block for KSU.

    That can not be good for CU. I now expect Oregon to hang about 65 on CU.

    Hanging 100 on us wouldn't help them.

    It won't hurt either, the polls have proven that letting off the gas will knock you down a few pegs. I doubt Chip will call off the dogs this time.

    Not true. Crushing CU is expected, the only thing that would hurt would be a (relatively) close game, and that's not going to happen. And I believe the computers aren't allowed to take margin of victory into account. I know Sagarin isn't allowed to use his best "Predictor" method which does this.

    Point differential no longer matters.

    The same KSU program we beat 2 years ago. Amazing what coaching can do, because it's not like KSU has had great recruiting.

    It's interesting to think about what "great" recruiting is. Do you recruit the "great" guy, or the "right" guy for what you do?

    Ducks play USC next so I doubt chip will risk injuries just to prove a point by running up the score on Colorado.

    KSU is great at the fundamentals. It is amazing what a team looks like when they can tackle, block and catch. You don't need a 5 star player at every position to win, you just need good execution.

    Also Oregon will jump Kansas State if they win out. Kansas State has played their toughest games, if Oregon wins out they´ll have beaten USC (probably twice), Stanford and Oregon State. That will be enough to make up a relatively small gap in the BCS standings.

    Not in the computers but it still has an indelible effect on the minds of the voters. It's ridiculous that they removed margin of victory from the computer polls.

    Oregon is the least tested team out of the top 5, I doubt they beat SC twice. We are about to find out about Oregon, and I wouldn't be shocked if they finish the regular season with 1 or 2 losses.

    Also would not be surprised if SC lost another game besides Oregon. A win over a 1 loss Oklahoma team>a win over a 2 loss USC team.

    Notre Dame impressed me tonight.

    I had no doubts about their defense, but Golson is starting to develop at QB and that takes them to a whole other level.

    One other thing is that this ND team is physical and tough. They didn't just win tonight. They beat OU up. Owned the trenches and there were Sooners constantly limping off the field.

    Irish have a very good team.

    Their front seven on defense can matchup with anyone. Nix and Teo up the middle is about as good a duo as you will find.

    USC and Oregon state losing reaaaaaally hurts Oregon.

    I think there is a good chance we see Bama, KSU, ND and Oregon all unbeaten at the end. That is going to create a hell of a cluster ****. That would be a helluva playoff too!

    Anyway, two of those will get "screwed". My bets are on KSU and Oregon getting left out if all 4 are undefeated.

    If all 4 win out it's projected that KSU and nd are the ones left out:

    Assuming all 4 win out, Oregon and ND will suffer because they'll have both beaten USC, and Oregon will have done so twice. USC won't be the big win that it should be in that scenario with their 5 losses. Idk if that's enough to keep KSU in the 2nd spot, but it should hurt the others a bit.
