With the Big Ten regular season in the books, it's a good time to take a look at the latest projections, pending next week's conference title game results of course.
There could be an upset or two, but if there are none, here is who will likely be playing who, their estimated final BCS ranking, and in what bowl they will meet.
BCS National Championship Game
No. 2 Auburn vs. No.1 Oregon
No. 5 Wisconsin vs. No. 3 TCU
No. 6 Ohio State vs. No. 9 Arkansas
No. 13 Virginia Tech vs. No. 4 Stanford
UConn vs. No. 12 Nebraska
The Fiesta will get screwed hard by having last choice and thus getting stuck with an unranked Big East champ, while several much-more deserving teams will be left on the outside looking in.
A few of note on that list include Boise State, LSU, Michigan State, and Oklahoma.
Every year we are left wondering what will it take to facilitate the college presidents to admit it is time for a playoff at the FBS level.
And every year, there are injustices and oversights, and tons of question marks about who really deserved to be ranked No. 1 or No. 2.
A playoff would not be perfect either because if there are eight teams chosen, teams nine and 10 will complain, but hands down, it would be better than the BCS.
For now, it is the system we have and those are the teams that will likely meet in each of the bowls this post season.
The again, a few upsets could occur next week rendering everything you just read completely moot, so stay tuned!
