In a year with only one undefeated major conference team, you would think that one or two of the non-automatic qualifying teams would be vying for an opportunity at an at-large BCS bid.
That just simply isn't the case this season.
With Houston's loss yesterday, none of the non-AQ teams have an undefeated record and it's likely, that for a change in recent memory, the BCS will be left to the "Big Boys" this season.
That is, the "Big Boys" sans Oklahoma.
Oklahoma was a major disappointment this season, but had an opportunity to salvage its season with a victory over Oklahoma State in Bedlam last night.
Not only didn't they win, but the Sooners were so soundly beaten, they may not even end up in a major second-tier bowl this holiday season.
So, to which bowls will these four teams be attending?
