The BCS picture is coming into clearer focus with three teams in the mix at the bookmaker to play in the BCS title game.
Oregon and Auburn are in control of their own destiny while TCU needs one of those teams to lose. TCU got a huge win this past week as they routed Utah and easily covered the spread at the online bookmaker.
Oregon leads the BCS standings with Auburn at number two. TCU is third and solidly a head of Boise State who is in fourth place. TCU has two easy games remaining so they are not going to gain on Oregon or Auburn in the polls unless one of those teams lose.
TCU in Good Position
TCU could be the first team from a non-BCS conference to play for the national title. They just need either Oregon or Auburn to lose down the stretch. And it could happen. Auburn has some tough games remaining including against Alabama and in the SEC title game. Oregon has to play at California this week in a game they are favored to win at the bookmaker and they also face Arizona and Oregon State before the season is over.
LSU Could Crash the Party
The LSU Tigers have moved up to fifth in the polls after they upset Alabama 24-21 this past week in online bookmaker football results. The Tigers are the highest one-loss team and that only loss was to Auburn.
Boise Still on the Outside
We say this every week and it remains the case that Boise State is on the outside looking in. They need Oregon or Auburn to lose against the odds at SBG and in reality they probably need them both to lose. Boise probably won’t catch TCU in the BCS standings but they could gain some ground as they play Nevada next week in a game in which they will be favored to win at the bookmaker.
