With Auburn's loss to Alabama, the door will open for a non-Big Six team to play in the BCS National Championship. TCU is ranked ahead of Boise State in the latest BCS rankings, but the Broncos' strength of schedule will be boosted with a win against No. 19 Nevada. Boise needs to win with style to convince voters, too, and although Nevada is a solid team, I think the Broncos will do enough to gain the No. 2 spot in the BCS Standings.
Oregon has looked unstoppable so far this year, and I don't see that ending against Arizona or Oregon State. The Ducks have the clearest path the the title and should be playing in Glendale on January 10.
In a rematch of last year's season opening game, Oregon will get its revenge. The new look Ducks are just too good for Boise State's defense, and the Oregon defense, while not the best, will be able to hold Kellen Moore and the BSU offense enough for its own offense to win the game.
After years of parading for this moment, Boise State will fall short and the non-BCS rebellion will not be nearly as strong of a movement as it has been in the past few years. And four years after its legendary Fiesta Bowl win against Oklahoma, the Broncos' "cry for justice" will fall short.
Boise State will get the big stage. It will get it's shot in the "corrupt system" that has actually helped it so much. And on January 10, it will fall short under the spotlight.
Line: Oregon -5
Prediction: Oregon 42, Boise State 34
