Projected BCS Rankings 2011: 5 Teams That Are Getting Screwed Tonight

With every college football season comes the unveiling of the first edition of the Bowl Championship Series rankings for college football's Top 25 teams. 

Every team aspires to be in the top two spots so they can earn the right to play for the AFCA National Championship trophy that is awarded to the winner of the BCS National Championship game.

Only one team has had their appearances and a victory vacated, as Southern California's appearance and 55-10 victory over Oklahoma in the 2005 Orange Bowl, and their appearance and loss in the 2006 Rose Bowl to the Vince Young-led Texas Longhorns, was wiped from the record.

There has also been teams that have been screwed over by the BCS, as the 2000 Miami Hurricanes were screwed out of a shot to face the Oklahoma Sooners for the national title, when Florida State was chosen ahead of the Hurricanes, even though Miami had beaten Florida State head-to-head.

Here are five teams that are going to get screwed when the first rankings of the 2011 season come out.
