Football fans, there are only three weeks left in the regular season and things have become a bit muddled due to the recent upsets on Saturday. A long as the the top two keep winning, the championship game will be set, but what about the other games, and what if the Tigers and Cowboys lose?
I'm looking at the top 15 schools (and the top three Big East contenders—someone has to win it) and give predictions on how they will finish the regular season. Then, I will give BCS bowl predictions: who will play and who will win.
First, a brief explanation of the BCS selection process for the uneducated.
1. Teams ranked No. 1 and No. 2 will play each other in the title game.
2. Bowls that have lost their host team will pick before the other bowl games do. The bowl that lost the No. 1-ranked team picks first, then the bowl that lost the No. 2-ranked team. If a bowl lost two teams (i.e. if the Rose lost both the Big Ten and Pac 12 champions to the title game), it gets two picks.
3. After steps one and two, the selection will go in order like normal. This year the order will be: Fiesta Bowl, Sugar Bowl and Orange Bowl. Rose Bowl automatically gets the Big Ten/Pac 12 champs if they aren't in the BCS title game.
