The top four stat the same this week with TCU increases their lead over Boise State. Stanford gets a big jump and rose to the six spot. The Big 10 race could come down to the final BCS standings so that race will be interesting. ONe thing that is odd is that Auburn is still number one in the computer rankings even though they played an FCS team.
Now onto the projections and again here is the order
A. A team in the NCG;
B. The host team for another BCS Bowl;
C. When two bowls lose host teams, then the bowl losing the number one team may not select a replacement team from the same conference as the number two team, unless the bowl losing the number two team consents.
4. After steps No. 1, 2 and 3 have been completed, any bowl with an unfilled slot shall select a team from the automatic qualifiers and/or at-large teams in the following order for the games played in 2007 through 2010:
January 2011 games: Sugar, Orange, Fiesta
BCS Title game:
Oregon Vs. Auburn
TCU vs. Wisconsin
LSU vs. Nebraska
Virginia Tech vs. Ohio State
Oklahoma State vs. Pitt
Before Boise State fans get all over me for not picking them. I took into consideration what the bowls would do, and the Sugar Bowl gets the first pick and they would take LSU over any other team, and then with Nebraska and Ohio State available they would be taken over Boise State. It does not help that the Orange Bowl would not want a rematch of Boise State vs. Virginia Tech.
The hope for Boise State to take on a good opponent would be for the Pac-10 to not have enough teams to go to the Las Vegas Bowl, and then there could be a potential matchup between Boise State and Utah. While not a BCS bowl at least they would get a good matchup.
