As the twists and turns of the 2010 college football season continue to test the BCS formula, Oregon and Auburn are front-runners in what seems like a cluster of one-loss squads.
Auburn handled Ole Miss with relative ease, heading back to Auburn with a 51-31 victory and a 9-0 record.
Oregon was tested by USC in the first half, but showed their resilient nature by jumping ahead to a 20-plus point lead in the fourth quarter, eventually winning 53-32. Oregon now sits at 8-0.
Oregon is No. 1 in the country.
Auburn is No. 2 in the country.
Both Auburn and Oregon posted over 50 points while on the road this Saturday.
The question isn't why these two teams for the BCS trophy, rather: why not?
