One Last Time for Bedlam in the BCS
Auburn just made things a lot more interesting in the BCS Top 5.
An early projection of what may or may not happen with the new Top 5 Sunday Night:
5. Missouri (11-1)
What a turnaround Mizzou has had. A new kid on the SEC block last season, they got kicked around. In 2013, the Tigers took home the east division title and will play Auburn in Atlanta next Saturday. If they win, they will argue their case about getting into the title game. That argument might fall on deaf ears.
4. Alabama (11-1)
Alabama lived by the foot of their kicker and died by it Saturday at Auburn. It's tough enough that the Crimson Tide lost to their arch rival, but they also lost a trip to Atlanta for the SEC Championship Game.
Not is all lost. A Missouri win over Auburn and a Michigan State win over Ohio State could roll the tide back into the title game.
3. Ohio State (12-0)
Sorry Buckeye Nation, you might be the odd man out this year.
This is when you wish they would've scrapped this system last year.
Ohio State ran the table during a sanctioned season in 2012 and have finished perfect again in 2013 going into their conference title game against Michigan State next Saturday.
Compared to Auburn, the Tigers' SEC schedule will appeal to the voters than the Buckeyes schedule.
Regardless who wins the SEC title, Ohio State might squeeze into the #2 spot.
2. Auburn (11-1)
Auburn might just be the best one loss team in college football right now. They might jump Ohio State due to the strength of schedule. This is where things would get fun, especially with fans in Columbus who have watched the Buckeyes win 24 straight going into the Big Ten Championship game next week.
1. Florida State (12-0)
Unless the Seminoles find a way to lose to the Duke Blue Devils in the ACC Championship Game, they are a lock to play in the final National Championship game under the BCS system.
Probably the safest team...for now.
If only it was 2014. Then again, one of these teams would be crying foul in the end.
That's why we love college football.
