College Football Predictions Week 8: Teams Ready to Stake Claim for BCS Title
Week 8 of college football has already come and gone, and that means it's time to see what teams are ready to claim a spot in the BCS National Championship.
Teams are moving around the BCS like never before, and teams outside are just as dangerous looking to nab a key spot.
These are a few teams with a realistic possibility at a BCS title (all rankings reflect BCS standings).
No. 3 Kansas State
Kansas State demolished West Virginia on Saturday, 55-14, to flex its muscle at the rest of the BCS standings.
Due to their stellar play, the high-powered Wildcats should be on the same page as No. 2 Florida and No. 1 Alabama.
Chaos is sure to ensue as Kansas State still must face Oklahoma State, TCU and Texas, which could be enough to help them get a BCS spot, provided they win.
No. 4 Oregon
The Oregon Ducks have been prodding along since the beginning of Week 1, taking teams down one by one. They destroyed Arizona State last week, 43-21, and proved to have a superior offense.
Oregon will get a nice schedule boost for a BCS spot by playing USC, Standford, Oregon State and possibly USC again (in the PAC 12 Championship Game).
No. 5 Notre Dame
The cards have to fall just right for the Fighting Irish if they want to claim a BCS title shot. Let's be honest, the chances are slim that the teams ahead of Notre Dame will falter, but it's still a chance. nonethless.
Starting 7-0, all eyes are on the Irish's matchup against Oklahoma, who will prove to be a tough opponent, this Saturday.
Oklahoma has a chance to stop Notre Dame on its way to a BCS spot, crushing the hearts of fans everywhere.
No. 7 Oregon State
Lost in all this chaos is the fact that Oregon State remains unbeaten as well. The chances are slim for Oregon State to earn a spot in the title game, but not impossible.
Considering that they have to play No. 4 Oregon and No. 17 Stanford, the Beavers will factor into the discussion down the road.
If the Beavers can remain unbeaten it may be hard to ignore them for a BCS spot.
But then again, it's the BCS—anything is possible right now.
