As you may have heard, the experts, whoever they are, are expecting the Boise State Broncos to be the No. 1 team in the BCS rankings when they are announced this coming weekend.
Too bad they won't be there when the season ends.
Boise State's schedule, which plays into the BCS ranking system, will be their undoing when it is all said and done. Their only hope is if all teams from the power conferences, i.e. SEC, Big Ten, Big 12 and Pac-10, all have at least one loss.
Speaking of the SEC, the conference that has won the last four BCS titles, it is unclear how it will turn out come early December now that the Alabama Crimson Tide have lost their first game since 2008. LSU and Auburn are the last of the undefeated teams in the SEC, and both are in the Western Division. Therefore, one of them are going to lose a game if not both.
That being said, there are reasons why the SEC must send a team to the BCS title game. No matter what. Why you ask?
