BCS Bowl Predictions – Round 2 – #NCAAFB

BCS National Championship
#1 LSU vs. #2 Alabama

Rose Bowl
PAC-12 Champ Oregon vs. Big Ten Champ Michigan State

Fiesta Bowl
Big 12 Champ Oklahoma State  vs At Large Houston

Orange Bowl
ACC Champ Virginia Tech vs Big East Champ Rutgers

Sugar Bowl
At Large Stanford  vs At Large Boise State

I’ve been trying to decipher the BCS rules and I believe that SEC may be able to get a third team in the BCS if it is LSU v Alabama in the Championship.  However, if it is LSU and Alabama that means that Both Georgia and Arkansas would both lose dropping GA out of the top 16 teams and giving Arkansas its second loss.

I also have to do more checking on how the PAC-12 will do their tie breaker to see who meets UCLA in the championship.  But as of right now, I have Oregon as conference champ.

I realize that I have 2 Non-AQs in BCS bowls but that is because Houston will the the Non-AQ spot (if they remain undefeated).  However, it is looking like Boise State will be ranked between 5 and 7 (should they win out).  I think it will be hard for a bowl to pass on a team ranked that high.  Especially with a fan base that travels well.  With Oklahoma State as my projected Big 12 winner, that means they will defeat Oklahoma putting them at 3 losses and ranked below Kansas State.

Let’s see what the future may hold.
