Will Oregon end up one of the top two teams in the BCS standings and get a chance to play for a title?

Now that the first BCS standings have been released for the 2013 college football season, it's time for the inevitable guesswork that comes with figuring out who will face whom come bowl time.

In case you haven't seen the first set of standings, they look like this:

1. Alabama

2. Florida State

3. Oregon

4. Ohio State

5. Missouri

6. Stanford

7. Miami (Fla.)

8. Baylor

9. Clemson

10. Texas Tech

11. Auburn

12. UCLA

13. LSU

14. Virginia Tech

15. Oklahoma

16. Texas A&M

17. Fresno State

18. Northern Illinois

19. Oklahoma State

20. Louisville

21. South Carolina

22. Michigan

23. UCF

24. Nebraska

25. Oregon State

But while these standings will determine which schools play in the big five bowls that are part of this last year of the BCS system, all told there are 35 bowl games. That means more than 55 percent of the 126 FBS programs will be playing at least one more game than is on the schedule.

Though so much can—and will—happen between now and Dec. 8, when the final BCS standings and the complete bowl lineup is released, that doesn't mean we can't start predicting, does it?

Check out our projections for the entire 2013-14 bowl season, and weigh in with your comments if you agree or disagree with our guesses. And remember, they're just guesses at this point.
