A look into this crystal football tells me the following teams have no shot at winning the 2013 BCS National Championship.

On Jan. 7, 2013, the BCS champion for the 2012 season will be determined in Miami. Two teams will have the opportunity to play for The Coaches’ Trophy, meaning 122 teams will not.

With the Associated Press and USA TODAY preseason Top 25 polls released, college football has gotten an even better look at which teams should be the nation’s best this season. That means the previous list has gotten even shorter, as at least 23 of the Top 25 teams will be out of contention for the BCS national championship once the regular season ends.

Let's look at the 10 so-called "elite" teams in college football that will not reach the 2013 BCS National Championship Game.
