Default Extremely unlikely, but what would happen if we jump to 4th?

Like me reiterate, *highly unlikely*, but with OK state already losing, it's possible Stanford and Ohio State lose today. Add in the loser of the SEC championship game, it's might be plausible we jump to 4th (although I don't see OSU falling that far, maybe the attrition with 3 teams behind them losing catapults us to 4th).

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.

Only 2 teams from one conference can go to the BCS, so if we were 3rd and the top 2 were also SEC, we'd still not be going to a BCS game. Next year would be a different story however.

Two teams from a conference can go to a BCS Title.

I'm not reading your hypothetical, as it's been discussed 8879879879 times.

SEC Winner will go to a BCS game, Alabama will go to a BCS game.

Have a nice day.

Purely from a rankings perspective or just in general because I know we are not going to a bcs game but what would be the best case scenario for us today? Who needs to win, who needs to lose?

No matter who loses that are currently ranked ahead of us, since we are not playing today, I think we will move up about two slots.

An Auburn win likely secures us a Capitol One bowl. A baylor loss would help us in rankings as well.

The BCS is an impossibility for us regardless of who wins and loses. BAMA is ahead of us that is one spot. Whoever wins the SEC gets the other spot. That is all.

If you are in the top 4 then you're supposed to be guaranteed a BCS bowl, but if 3 of the top 4 teams are from the SEC someone is gonna get left out.

And it would be us in this scenario

Default Re: Extremely unlikely, but what would happen if we jump to 4th?

Only thing we can play for now is to win the bowl game and see if we can finish the highest in school history. Not going to BCS. Had Alabama not lost to Auburn we would have a shot at the BCS but Auburn always finds a way to screw us when we are playing them or not. Should be playing for a national title spot today and Shaw a Heisman, but there's always going to be that Knoxville game staring at us like the 84 Navy game and Florida 2012 game.

This is essentially what I was alluding to. I doubt they'd change the rule for it to be in their favor, but who knows what will happen if that were to shake out.

3 teams from the same conference have never been in the top 4 heading into bowl season, I'm curious to see the decision.

Default Re: Extremely unlikely, but what would happen if we jump to 4th?

there isnt a decision to be made if alabama is 3rd and we're 4th, they would get the bid because theyre the higher ranked team amongst the automatic qualifiers (top 4), then we get left out because there would already be 2 sec teams with bids.

the only way 3 teams from the same conference can get bids is if 1 and 2 are from the same conference and neither is the conference champ. so 1 and 2 in the national title game and the conference winner in a bcs bowl. no chance of that happening this year and no chance of us leaping over alabama, so we wont be bcs bowling.

I'll give this a shot. It would be nice (however,improbable) that we jump to 4th. If we win the bowl game, we could possibly finish the season in the top 3 which would be awesome for the program!

I'd really like an explanation from you of why something that only mentions the number 1 and 2 teams and conference champion suggests it is possible for us to go ranked number 4 and not winning the conference championship.
