It would be possible if Duke beat FSU, Mich st beats OSU and two SEC schools are number 1 and 2 BUT neither one can be the champion. Not sure how that can possibly happen.

I think they smoked some chronic before coming up with that exception.

Right now it's looking like we should be at least 6th.

I know Arkansas missed out when they were 6th the year that bama and lsu played for it. Not sure if there was anyone else higher.

Kansas state was 3rd the first yr 1998 and played in the Alamo bowl. They lost in double OT in the big 12 champ game and fell from 1 to 3.
They made a rule so that 3 would always go to a bcs game after that.

So I guess as much as this sucks it could be worse.

Basically you would have to have two teams from the same conference in the same division ranked 1 and 2. One will be undefeated and go to the conf champ and the other will have 1 loss to the #1 team. Everyone else in the country has at least 2 or three losses and the #1 team loses in the conf champ. A loss that late in the season won't drop them below #2 because they are already so far ahead of #3 who is sitting at 2+ losses.

It's possible for us to go to a BCS. IF, FSU and OSU both lose, we will jump up a bunch I spots because the NCG would be Iron Bowl 2.

No, Auburn is the SECC so there is not 3rd team from the SEC.

Just like in the 2011-2012 season when Bama played LSU.

The other BCS teams were Oregon-Wisc in the rose, Ok State and Stanford in the Fiesta, Mich- Va Tech in the Sugar, and WVU and Clem5on in the Orange (snicker).


No third BCS team from the SEC.

Although this scenario is not going to play out based on the games so far...IF we would've ended 4th behind FSU, Auburn and Bama, we could have been selected to the BCS. There isn't a rule that states you have to take #3 over number #4. Both teams qualify for an automatic bid, but one, by choice of the bowl that has the pick, would lose out. However, if that happened, they would pick Bama 9 out of 10 times.

like others have said in different thread, it's a lock for us to the CapOne against Wisconsin. I love new year's day bowls. great for recruiting, and great for our Florida recruiting. As usual, we will keep those FL pipelines flowin

Ohio State has very little respect from a lot of the voters so if they lose the game today I think we would jump them to #5. And then hopefully we win the bowl game and get a really nice preseason ranking next year

The only way we go to a BCS bowl is if we jump to either #1 or 2.

Now, if that hypothetical situation were to happen, what would that do to the BCS? Aren't you guaranteed a spot if you are in the top 4 (Although it may be top 3, and this theory is completely useless lol)?

Not sure what they'd do if 3 of the top 4 are in the SEC.
We wont make a BCS but it is not unlikely at all that we jump to 4th. We may very well be number 5 tomorrow night.
