Here is what the current BCS Top 17 looks like:
1. Notre Dame (IND)
2. Alabama (SEC)
3. Georgia (SEC)
4. Florida (SEC)
5. Oregon (Pac-12)
6. Kansas State (Big 12)
7. LSU (SEC)
8. Stanford (Pac-12)
9. Texas A&M (SEC)
10. South Carolina (SEC)
11. Oklahoma (Big 12)
12. Nebraska (Big Ten)
13. Florida State (ACC)
14. Clemson (ACC)
15. Oregon State (Pac-12)
16. UCLA (Pac-12)
17. Kent State (MAC)
With the limit of two teams per conference clearly in play, here are the current BCS bowl-eligible teams this season:
Notre Dame, Alabama or Georgia, Florida, Oregon, Kansas State, Stanford, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Florida State and Clemson.
This means that there will be four teams outside of the BCS Top 10 in the five major bowls this season. This means that there will be either a regular-season rematch in the BCS or two major mismatches.
BCS title game: No. 1 Notre Dame vs. Alabama or Georgia (No. 2 after SEC championship win)
Sugar Bowl: No. 4 Florida vs. No. 5 Oregon
Fiesta Bowl: No. 6 Kansas State (if it beats Texas) vs.
Orange Bowl: No. 13 Florida State (it it beats Georgia Tech) vs.
Rose Bowl: Winner of No. 12 Nebraska/Wisconsin vs. Winner of No. 8 Stanford/No. 16 UCLA
The last two teams to be placed are either Oklahoma/Clemson and the Big East champion or the Big East champion and Kent State (if Kent State climbs one spot to No. 16)
The only two slots left to fill at this point would be the Fiesta Bowl (against No. 6 Kansas State) and the Orange Bowl (against No. 13 Florida State).
So, unranked Rutgers and No. 16 Kent State will have to draw straws as to which team gets to take on Kansas State, and the winner of that gamble will "get" to face Florida State. That sounds like a crappy proposal for everyone involved.
*If Kent State finishes 16th or higher, the Golden Flashes have to be placed in a BCS bowl. If not, then the Sugar Bowl will probably be Florida vs. Oklahoma and the Fiesta Bowl will probably be Kansas State vs. Oregon. That will pit No. 13 Florida State against unranked Rutgers for the Orange Bowl. (If Louisville beats Rutgers, it might get even worse.)
