There are currently seven unbeaten teams and three teams with one loss that deserve consideration for a shot at the BCS national championship.
Oregon is perhaps the best of the best right now, as the Ducks have been trouncing opponents.
Auburn is Cam Newton, Cam Newton, Cam Newton. It will face a tough test in Bama, though.
Alabama still controls its BCS destiny, but it can't have a slip up. That makes the Tide dangerous.
Michigan State has not been pretty at times, but the Spartans are winning games and have just one tough trip--a game at Iowa this week--left on their schedule.
Ohio State is still dangerous, but it will have to win at Iowa and lay the wood on everyone else.
Missouri is a very interesting team. Its improved defense has led the way. The Tigers will find out how good they really are when they travel to Lincoln this week.
Boise, TCU, and Utah are all unbeaten, but who knows how well the computers will like them. Boise will go unbeaten, and so will the winner of the TCU-Utah game.
Stanford may be the real long shot, but an Oregon slip up puts them and Andrew Luck back in the race.
