A road map to the BCS title game

Graham HarrellHere is who the top six BCS teams currently have left to face:

1. *ALABAMA: at Louisiana St.; Mississippi St.; Auburn
2. *TEXAS TECH: Oklahoma State; at Oklahoma; Baylor
3. PENN STATE: at Iowa; Indiana; Michigan State
4. *TEXAS: Baylor; at Kansas; Texas A&M
5. *FLORIDA: at Vanderbilt; South Carolina; The Citadel; at Florida St.
6. *OKLAHOMA: at Texas A&M; Texas Tech; at Oklahoma State
*-may also play in league championship

Just based on the remaining schedule, it looks like the title game will probably come down to the league championship weekend, which only benefits Penn State since the Big Ten doesn’t have a championship game.

But what’s interesting is that all six of these teams have potential pitfall games that could sink them before championship weekend. ‘Bama has the toughest road to travel with LSU and Auburn still left on its schedule, while Texas Tech has two dangerous games back to back in OK State and Oklahoma, while Florida-Florida State is always interesting. Penn State and Texas have arguably the easiest schedule, although Iowa and Michigan State could catch the Nittany Lions napping.

Something I don’t want to hear this year his how championship week is essentially a playoff. That is the most exciting week in college football, but it’s not a true playoff system and it’s a joke when BCS supporters try to pedal it as such.
