Default First Team EVER to beat 3 BCS Bowl teams in one year?

If Florida State wins (thereby putting FSU in the nat'l championship game and Clemson in the Orange Bowl)...
AND
If Missouri wins.

We'd have beaten THREE BCS Bowl teams (UCF, Clemson, Mizzou) in one year.

I can't imagine that accomplishment has ever been done before. Am I wrong?

Do some research on 2011 LSU.

Yeah.

They beat the Pac-12 Champs: Oregon, Big East Champs: WVU (Who beat Clemson in that Orange Bowl.) Alabama: the National Champs.

And beat 8 ranked opponents.

I forgot they played Oregon and WVU that year. Didn't work out for them in the one that counted though.

2011 LSU beat Oregon (Rose) and Alabama (Championship). That's two. Did I miss a 3rd?

That's a good question. I think it may depend on if you can count winning a BCS game as one of the three wins against BCS teams or if you just stick to regular season. Either way I doubt very many if any have done it.

UGA wasn't in a BCS bowl that year. They went to the Outback Bowl and lost to Michigan State in overtime.

I was mistaken about UGA going to a BCS bowl, but LSU DID beat UGA. In the SEC championship.

I know the OP asked about the BCS era, but prior to the BCS era, the 1988 Miami Hurricanes beat Michigan (the Big 10 champ and Rose Bowl participant), Arkansas (SWC champion and Cotton Bowl participant), Nebraska (Big XII champ and Orange Bowl participant) and Florida State (Sugar Bowl participant). Of course, there only loss was to the eventual national champions, Notre Dame, in the "Catholics vs Convicts" game.

So...
At the least... It looks like we'd be the first to Beat 3 BCS Bowl teams, but not play in a BCS bowl game.
