Early BCS Bowl Picture

Another weekend of college football down and we still do not have a clear-cut No. 1 team.

Many could argue that LSU, with their dominant defense and surprise star quarterback Jarrett Lee, are the team to beat.

However, some can argue that not only are the Tigers not the top team in the nation, but they may not even be the top team in their conference. The Alabama Crimson Tide have stomped everybody they play and are looking to get back to the BCS title game.

The Oklahoma Sooners also figure to lay claim to a BCS title game slot should they finish the year undefeated. Oklahoma also has the benefit of not playing in a conference championship game. Win out and they’re in.

There are a number of other teams who plan to make their way into argument as well, as Wisconsin, Michigan and Illinois are all undefeated in the Big Ten.

The Pac-12 has Oregon and Stanford, who will look to complicate things, and let us not forget about the Clemson Tigers and Georgia Tech's Yellow Jackets in the ACC.

The Boise State Broncos will make an argument that they belong, but it will most likely fall on deaf ears and they will not be rewarded by the voters.

With the first official BCS standings a week away from being released, let us forecast who will  be playing in the five major bowl games in January.
