BCS Championship Race Heats Up!

Oklahoma State BCS Title RunFollowing the “Game of the Century” on Saturday night between the top ranked LSU Tigers and the #2 Alabama Crimson Tide, the BCS Championship picture is becoming a little more clear.  LSU has 3 games remaining on their regular season schedule and will face Western Kentucky, Ole Miss, and the 8th ranked Arkansas Razorbacks.  If they can get by the Razorbacks they are almost guaranteed a trip to New Orleans for the BCS National Championship Game as the SEC Championship would be against a relatively weak team from the SEC East (Likely Georgia or South Carolina).

Assuming LSU wins out, the next big question is who will they play for the national title?  Four other college football teams remain undefeated:  #2 Oklahoma State,  #3 Stanford, #5 Boise State, and #9 Houston.  Although the Houston Cougars have one of the best offenses in college football, their strength of schedule pretty much guarantees that they will not have a shot at a national championship.  That leaves 3 teams will a viable chances to face LSU at the Superdome.

Oklahoma State Cowboys Football Schedule 

The Oklahoma State Cowboys should have no problem taking care of Texas Tech and Iowa State even though those games are on the road.  However, the Bedlam Game against #7 Oklahoma Sooners certainly could foil their BCS Hopes.  That said, OK State is in the best shape to stay undefeated and face LSU for the title.

Boise State Broncos Football Schedule 
BSU by far has the easiest schedule ahead of them.  They face off against some mediocre WAC talent to close out the season.  With only 1 quality win under their belt (Georgia) it will be next to impossible for the Broncos make the Championship game without both Stanford and OK State losing.
