Week 11 of the 2011 college football season has come and gone. We are now left with a shaken foundation and many questions concerning which teams will be playing in the BCS national championship.
Boise State suffered a monumental loss to TCU by a final score of 36-35 that will eliminate the Broncos from the race.
Andrew Luck and Stanford struggled all night to hold Oregon. Their loss will eliminate them from contention.
That leaves us with only three undefeated teams in the nation.
No. 1 LSU is still expected to run the table and be the top team heading into the championship game.
No. 2 Oklahoma State remains undefeated, but there are many questions as they attempt to close out the season.
No. 11 Houston also remains unbeaten, but they aren't going to get any love in the BCS standings.
If Oklahoma State falls to sixth-ranked Oklahoma in the final week of the season, it means that there will be a one-loss team playing for the national championship.
The question then will be "Who is going to get the shot?"
The three teams that will likely get the most attention will be Oklahoma, Oregon and, of course, Alabama. Oklahoma will likely get the short end of the stick because they lost to a much lesser opponent in Texas Tech.
That will leave Oregon and Alabama as the two contenders. Each team lost to LSU this season.
