Coming around turn four and heading for home, the BCS is heating up for a photo finish. Oregon and Auburn top the BCS rankings, but non-BCS schools TCU and Boise State continue to make a case for playing in Glendale, Arizona on January 10, 2011.

Will Oregon and Auburn hold the top two spots? Will the SEC continue to dominate the BCS Championship, and if so, which conference will serve up the next victim in the BCS title game?
Let's take a look at the current top 10 in the BCS rankings and determine possible pot-holes and land mines on their way to the season's finish line.
