BCS Bowl projections are in full swing with the final week of college football games upon us.
The two top teams in the country—Oregon and Auburn—are facing pivotal games this week.
Auburn is playing South Carolina for the SEC Championship and Oregon is playing Oregon State in a backyard brawl.
If both teams lose, it will create some mayhem in the Bowl projections. So, once the dust settles, what will the Bowl projections potentially look like in the event of a double upset?
Matchup: Iowa vs. LSU
LSU must be kicking themselves after losing to Arkansas. After all, it did cost them a shot at a BCS Bowl game.
Iowa is in the midst of a three-game losing streak, and they're lucky to get into the Outback Bowl.
Ricky Stanzi will have his work cut out for him if Iowa wants to compete.
Behind the arm and legs of Jordan Jefferson, LSU should be able to come out with a win against the Hawkeyes.
Matchup: Penn State vs. Florida
Both Penn State and Florida did not have the type of success they've had over the past decade, but they both managed to make a bowl game.
Joe Paterno will be ready in what should be a chess match between him and Urban Meyer.
Matt McGloin has played well taking over the starting duties behind center, but he'll have his work cut out for him.
Matchup: Michigan State vs. Arkansas
The Razorbacks will be pitted against the Spartans in the Capital One Bowl.
Arkansas is on a six-game winning streak, with two big wins in the previous two games coming against Mississippi State and LSU.
Ryan Mallett should have no trouble picking apart Michigan State in what should be a fairly one-sided game.
Matchup: Miami vs. Temple
It has been a disappointing season for the Miami Hurricanes.
Randy Shannon—who was recently fired from the head coach position—was expected to come in and turn the team around. While the team made some strides, the program is not back in the National spotlight.
This could make for a close game with the Owls challenging a demoralized Miami team.
Jacory Harris will need to come up big and avoid throwing too many picks. He has a strong defense to back him up, but it may not be enough.
Matchup: Arizona vs. Oklahoma University
This matchup between Arizona and Oklahoma is taking into account that Oklahoma loses to Nebraska in the Big 12 title game.
The Wildcats may have lost to Oregon recently, but they gave them a true test and nearly walked away with a win.
Expect DeMarco Murray to have a huge game in what should be a high scoring battle between the two teams.
Matchup: Texas A&M vs. Alabama
Texas A&M just recently accepted an invite to go to the Cotton Bowl.
They'll be faced up against the reigning National Champions, the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Texas A&M might be hot right now—on a six-game winning streak—but this matchup doesn't have a whole lot of draw, as it seems like Alabama will roll right over Texas.
However, 'Bama may still be reeling for their colossal second-half meltdown against Auburn the other week, which the Aggies can take advantage of.
Look for Von Miller to clash with Mark Ingram quite a few times in this matchup.
Matchup: Virginia Tech vs. University of Connecticut
Virginia Tech's Orange Bowl bid will be solidified with a win over Florida State in the ACC Championship game.
Tyrod Taylor and the Hokies should have no trouble against their woeful Big East foe, UConn.
Expect a blowout win. Nothing to see here, move along.
Matchup: Nebraska vs. Ohio State
Nebraska will be a lock should they win the Big 12 Championship game against Oklahoma.
Ohio State will earn an at-large bid that will get them into the Fiesta Bowl.
Nebraska will be pitted against Jim Tressel and the Terrell Pryor-led Buckeyes. As long as Taylor Martinez is healthy, this should make for an interesting game.
Matchup: South Carolina vs. Stanford
The Gamecocks did lose to the Tigers earlier in the season, but if they beat the Tigers and take the SEC Championship, the Sugar Bowl should be a lock.
Here, they'll get a shot against Stanford. The Cardinals won't be a pushover with standout quarterback, Andrew Luck, at the helm.
This is just speculation that Stanford would be left out of the National Title hunt. Stanford fans may not be happy with the team being left out, even after a superb 11-win season, but that's what happens when a flawed BCS system is in place.
Matchup: Oregon vs. Wisconsin
In the event that Oregon loses to Oregon State, they would have to settle for the Rose Bowl.
The Rose Bowl is not a bad consolation by any means. In fact, many teams would kill to get there. But when you have a National Championship within your grasp only to watch it slip away, it's devastating.
This would pit the Pac-10 champion against the Big 10 champion in what should be a high scoring affair.
LaMichael James is in the running for the Heisman, but Oregon failing to get into the National title game would most likely make Newton a lock.
Matchup: Auburn vs. TCU
Now, even with an Auburn loss, I have trouble seeing voters putting Stanford, or even Wisconsin, ahead of Auburn.
Stanford should technically be in line for the National Title game, but like most people, I don't think anyone wants to see TCU face off against Stanford.
The biggest factor in Auburn remaining in the National Title game, even with a loss, would come down to the deficit in which Auburn loses to South Carolina. If it's a blowout loss, it would be near impossible for voters to push Auburn in.
However, if it's a tight game, than voters may be swayed to leave Auburn—a non-conference winner—in the hunt for a National Championship.
This may not be the matchup people were hoping for, but it could be a good one nonetheless.
