New BCS Projections: SEC, Big Ten get two teams in

 

It’s Tuesday, we’re tired of talking about Cam Newton,  and the new BCS  standings are out. So let’s update our projections.

BCS Championship:  No. 1 Oregon vs. No. 2 Auburn.

Update: Just about every team that plays for the BCS national championship dodges at least one bullet along the way. For Oregon that was last Saturday night against California. Cal missed a 29-yard field goal that would have given the Bears the lead. Auburn (11-0) still has to win at Alabama and has to beat South Carolina for the second time this season when they meet in the SEC championship game on Dec. 4.

Rose: Wisconsin vs. Boise State.

Update: If Wisconsin, Ohio State, and Michigan State all finish at 11-1 the tiebreaker will go to the highest ranked team in the BCS Standings. That will be Wisconsin after the Badgers hung 83 on Indiana last Saturday. Boise State (9-0) still has three games left (Fresno State, Nevada, Utah State) but if the Broncos win out I beleive they will jump over TCU (which has one game left with 1-9 New Mexico) into the No. 3 spot. If Oregon goes to the big game, the Rose has to take Boise.

Sugar: LSU vs. Ohio State.

Update: LSU has to beat Ole Miss on Saturday, which it will do. But then the Tigers have a very interesting trip to Little Rock to face Arkansas on Nov. 27. Win both games and the Tigers are close to a lock for New Orleans if Auburn is in the big game. The Sugar will look at 12-0 TCU but I believe they will pass and take 11-1 Ohio State for the television ratings.

Orange: Virginia Tech vs. TCU.

Update: If the Sugar takes Ohio State, the Orange will basically have a choice between undefeated TCU and 11-1 Stanford. Michigan State can’t go at 11-1 because two Big Ten teams have already been picked. A two-loss SEC team can’t go because two SEC teams have been chosen. 

Fiesta: Nebraska vs. West Virginia.

Update:  The Fiesta gets the Big 12 champ and right now I’m leaning towards Nebraska. The Big East champions gets an automatic bid regardless of its record or ranking and so the Fiesta is praying that West Virginia wins that league. Looks like it will come down to the Backyard Brawl between Pittsburgh (5-4) and West Virginia (6-3) on Nov. 26. With West Virginia on the other side the Fiesta has a chance to sell some tickets. Don’t forget South Florida (6-3) which controls its destiny in the Big East.

Stanford  (9-1) has games remaining with Oregon State and California. The Cardinal could finish 11-1 and be left out of the BCS unless Auburn stumbles down the stretch. Because if Auburn loses and either Boise or TCU moves into the BCS championship game, the Rose doesn’t have to take a non-automatic qualifier. The Rose would then be free to take Stanford to play Wisconsin, which is the game they want if Oregon is not available.

Any questions?

Aubs lose at least once…maybe twice — so this is very premature.

“Aubs lose at least once, maybe twice…” Heard this at least 5 straight weeks. It never gets old.

I’ll have fun watching the whiny GA fans post all day on here how much they respect bammer and hope they stomp AU’s “classless” @sses.

thUGA calling another program classess = absolute height of hipocrisy.

I hope you have nightmares of Nick Fairley for months.

Fact: UGay has the whiniest buch of sissy boy fans in the ENTIRE league.

A tale begun in other days,
When summer suns were glowing-
A simple chime, that served to time,
The rhythm of our rowing-

In other words, We’ll see…

These bowl projections change every week. I’ll wait a few more weeks before I bother myself with reading them.

@Realistic Fan,
And in a year or two, when the NCAA finally gets around to it, we will have the Tigers/Plainsmen/War Eagles (pick one) singing the blues, while Scam and Cheap Shot Fairley will have long since moved on. So you guys won for the first time in 5 years against the Dogs. So what? It was about time.

Why is it that whenever you guys have a good team, there is usually some sort of probation invovled?

I hope it works out that way and gives the ACC “champ” a third loss in the same year to basically 1-AA opponent.

@Roll Tide — I’m sure that Fairley fellow will be glad to meet you before the game; in that manner, you can dish out whatever punishment you deem necessary before he has a chance to get to your QB. Oh, you meant the Bama TEAM would take on Fairley. My bad, I misunderstood.

Be proud Auburn. Your wonderful season (so far, and highly subject to change both on and off the field) is attributable to a mercenary who wanted to go to MS State and the dirtiest player in the league in years.

@Roll Tide

Injuring McElroy is not a viable game-plan for Auburn. Alabama is not a one-man team. They have at least two backup quarterbacks who could beat Auburn. I don’t think that Fairley can manage to take them all out of the game.

Alabama is down this year after losing so much talent from last year’s squad, but a down Bama team is still too much for the best team that Auburn can buy.

Jean: So when the NCAA clears AU and Cam this week…I suppose then everyone will say that AU paid them off.

You guys are such a bunch of little girls. I bet you’re an Obama fan too, right?

Tony, you suck at writing as much as you suck at picking football games.

The BS-bcs is the dumbest system ever developed by man…and only idiots like Tony and sec-espn support it.

It is time to get the idiotic opinions of writers like Tony out of football.

We need a 16 team playoff. It would be totally fair and it would be the most exciting sporting event in history.

Do any 2 loss SEC teams get a BCS bid? Just hoping.

I would love to see an SEC team in the NC game, but I hate Awbarn being our representative.

There are still some really good games ahead in the SEC and for SEC teams against other rivals.

I would also like to know just how good TCU and Boise State are when playing other top teams. Utah was exposed as a sham this year. Too bad the Big East and ACC Champions get an automatic BCS bid this year….they’ll both get slaughtered, unless they played each other.

Wellllll I think Auburn will lose to Bama. then they will probably beat So.C. again in the SEC championship. Will LSU still go to the sugaaaar then? Those Bugger eaters at AU will get their due, real soon. Im hearing 5 years probation. Well, I’ve got some gardening to do. Barb where are my gloves?

Booger is spelled booger, not bugger. Bugger is a British slang expression for a universal term I can’t cite here, if you know what I mean.
