With the way college football works nowadays, it is made to believe that you have to run the table in order to reach the BCS National Championship. Once you lose that one game, everybody laughs at you, points fingers and calls you a pretender for the rest of the season.
The truth is there are a total of 15 teams in the new BCS rankings that have at least one loss, with three clubs already experiencing failure twice. And while it may seem like many of the teams with one loss have removed all hope of reaching the big game, there is still plenty of football left to be played and every squad will have a chance to prove itself.
Since 2005, there have been a total of five teams that have won the BCS Championship and had experienced at least one loss during the regular season. There is still hope if you are a fan of one of these clubs that has gotten off to a slow start.
Here are the top teams with one loss that still have an outside shot of taking a trip to Miami, FL this year and winning that crystal ball.
