    BCS Championship Game 2012-13

    Big 12 winner is KS with either 0 or 1 loss, probably 0.

    SEC Champ either has 0, or 1 loss, probably 0. SEC champ + Loser = 2 losses. It could be a 1 + 1 finish.

    ACC Champ has 1 or 2 losses. Irrelevant. Not going.

    BigTen Champ has 184 losses.

    Pac 12 is interesting.

    MOST interesting scenario:

    Oregon crushes USC, but loses to OSU in OT.
    OSU wins out, but gets crushed by USC in championship
    USC wins out, but got crushed by Oregon.



    Mix in a KS loss to a lesser team and an undefeated Florida beating an undefeated Alabama in the SEC Champ.
    You can't take USC, it has 2 losses.
    You can't take Oregon (which ESPN desperately wants.)
    You can't take ND, when it got beat by 2 loss USC.
    You don't want to take KS, because it got caught in a trap game.

    And then we have Bama/LSU 2.0

    Fun Fun Fun

    Uh not necessarily. If we learned anything from last year, we learned that the voters are going to vote for whoever they think the two best teams are regardless or whether or not they win their conference. The voter's eyeball test was LSU and Alabama. This year, it is Alabama and Oregon, so far. If Oregon loses a close game to OSU in OT, then the voters will probably still find a way to vote them #2 among the one loss teams. While Florida has played well, they haven't been superconvincing to some people that they are the second best team in the nation. The computers love them now, but that's going to change when their schedule gets soft at this point.

    Nope. Last year they sent Alabama because it lost to no one except LSU and were rated #2 prior to the SEC Championship. And of the Big 4 conferences, there were only 2 with a conference champ. We added 2 conf champ this year (and lost one) and the BCS made sounds about requiring Conf Champions in the new system.

    They might try to jury rig the coaches poll to make sure that there are not a single conf occupying #1 and #2 going into the Conf Champs, but there is still a lot of computers to fool.

    It's very possible that Oregon or Bama slip into a #2 slot without winning a conf champ if KS isn't undefeated.
