    Houston Loss=No BCS?

    Houston is only a 3 point favorite tomorrow. If they lose, do they get knocked out of the BCS. If so, two Big 12 teams would see pretty reasonable right?

    Re: Houston Loss=No BCS?

    If Houston wins and LSU loses - who gets to play Houston in the NC game? great system this BCS. Houston puts together a dream season and just because they could not un-schedule their non-con and conference games and put together a better schedule not shot at being number one. Stupid stupid system

    For sure would get kicked out. But we are going to a bowl either way.

    No way does Houston get into the BCS with one loss.

    Re: Houston Loss=No BCS?

    1 of the 4 at-large bids will be SEC, no question.
    1 might be Houston - or not.

    What about the rest? The Big 12 is certainly best suited for 2 at-large bids unless OSU beats OU and ISU beats KSU.

    I think the 4 at-large bids will be SEC, Big 12, Pac-12, and either Houston or Big 10.

    Re: Houston Loss=No BCS?

    If Houston loses, they won't be conference champs since Tulsa will play So Miss in the championship game, so they can't play in the BCS.

    The real question if they lose is whether or not TCU makes the BCS as a 2 loss team. If I understand it right they would make the BCS if they're ranked in the top 16 because they'll be ranked higher than the Big East champ.

    I think Boise would make it before TCU. I don't know how the rules work for non-AQ teams making it in, but Boise is 7th in the BCS right now. So I would say SEC, Big 12, Pac-12 (unless Oregon or Stanford lose again), and either Houston or Boise will get at-large bids.

    I agree. Should still increase ISU's Holiday Bowl chances

    Yep. Pretty much takes them out of BCS if they lose. I think Big 12 gets 2 unless something weird happens. Two of OSU, OU, and KSU will make it.

    Impossible for Boise to make the BCS. TCU is Mtn West conference champs over Boise. Boise can't qualify for the BCS unless they make the top 4.

    Wrong. Boise St is not eligible for a non-BCS automatic qualifier bid, but they are 100% eligible for an at-large bid:

    If there are fewer than 10 automatic qualifiers, then the bowls will select at-large participants to fill the remaining berths. An at-large team is any Football Bowl Subdivision team that is bowl-eligible and meets the following requirements:
    A. Has won at least nine regular-season games, and
    B. Is among the top 14 teams in the final BCS Standings.

    Re: Houston Loss=No BCS?

    According to the BCS, a non-AQ conference champion automatically qualifies if they finish in the top 12, or if they finish in the top 16 ahead of any of the AQ conference champions. That is considered an automatic bid. No more than one non-AQ can receive such an automatic bid.

    As of right now, Houston is obviously in line for this, but if they were to lose, TCU would need to hop into the top 16 (they are #20 right now, and ahead of every Big East team). Boise could still be in line for an at-large, but I doubt any bowl would pick them.

    This is the link that I referenced.

    Assuming LSU and Alabama win out, who else is excited for the Houston-Bama Sugar Bowl?

    Re: Houston Loss=No BCS?

    If Houston loses and gets into a BCS game, then Boise State should have made it to a BCS bowl game last year having lost its only game by 3.

    I hate that a mid-major has to go undefeated in order to "qualify" for a BCS bowl game, but that has been the standard that has been set.

    I think TCU gets in if Houston loses and frankly that would look great for the B12
