5 Best BCS Scenarios for the Big Ten

With the month of October fading into the rear-view mirror, the BCS picture is beginning to take shape as teams around the nation race towards the finish line of the 2013 college football season. It's no different in the Big Ten, a conference eager to reassert its national credentials in the BCS this season. And with five teams all with two or fewer overall losses on the season, there are several scenarios that can lead to possible BCS glory for the Big Ten.

The BCS Championship Game is the ultimate destination, but it's not the end-all, be-all for the Big Ten, or any conference. Even in the era of a separate BCS championship matchup, the Rose Bowl holds special significance to the conference. The 2014 Rose Bowl Game also marks the 100th edition of the "Granddaddy of Them All," and will be the final edition in its current Pac-12 vs. Big Ten format without the College Football Playoff taking a central role.

There are also potential bids to the Fiesta, Sugar or Orange bowls up for grabs as well.
