With just the conference championships remaining before bowl season, the BCS bowl selection show will take place on Sunday, and we will finally see which teams will be heading to the BCS games.
Crazy things have happened over the past few weeks that have shaken up the BCS picture. The Baylor Bears lost their undefeated season after getting blown out by Oklahoma State a couple of weeks ago, while the Auburn Tigers pulled off the massive upset over the Alabama Crimson Tide just last week.
Things are bound to get crazier after Saturday's games, so let's take a look at the viewing information for the BCS bowl selection show and a breakdown of what could happen this weekend.
Date: Sunday, Dec. 8
Time: 8:30 p.m. ET
Live Stream: WatchESPN
The Florida State Seminoles are the team that certainly feels like a lock for the BCS National Championship Game, considering the fact that they've blown out almost every opponent they've faced this season. Still, they will have to get through the Duke Blue Devils in the ACC championship, but that shouldn't prove too difficult.
If they all win, who should play Florida State in the national championship?
However, you can't assume anything in college football, as we've learned almost every season. Upsets can happen at any time, and a conference opponent like Duke has a shot to beat the Seminoles, even if it's a small one.
The big concern right now is which team would play Florida State if the Seminoles, Ohio State Buckeyes and Auburn Tigers all win on Saturday. As it stands now, Ohio State is No. 2, but the argument has been made that since the SEC is the most powerful conference in the nation, the winner of the SEC Championship Game should go to the national championship.
Clay Travis from FoxSports.com brings up a very interesting point regarding Auburn's claim for a national title spot:
Auburn will play four top 25 final ranking BCS teams this year. Combined FSU and Ohio State will play three. http://t.co/FsWb7Wbkz2— Clay Travis (@ClayTravisBGID) December 3, 2013
Still, there are other BCS bowl games for teams to fight for spots in. The Michigan State Spartans are a team that could theoretically go to the Rose Bowl, even with a loss. Obviously, as Big Ten champions they would go with a win over Ohio State, but if they lose and are still able to stay in the Top 14 of the BCS standings, they could replace the Buckeyes as an at-large bid.
With both Fresno State and Northern Illinois losing recently, it doesn't look like any non-automatic qualifier will be able to grab an at-large bid. That leaves teams from the big conferences to grab the rest of the spots in the BCS bowl games.
It will be very interesting to see where the Crimson Tide go, considering that they're now just an at-large bid. A likely scenario would be for them to play against the Clemson Tigers in the Orange Bowl, with Clemson replacing the Seminoles out of the ACC.
Oklahoma State could grab a guaranteed spot in the Fiesta Bowl with a win, and the Central Florida Knights could lock a spot as an automatic qualifier if they win against SMU and take the American Athletic Conference title.
Things could change in a hurry, but with just conference championships and bowl games remaining, the rest of the college football season is bound to be filled with great games and instant classics.
