SEC Champ, Oklahoma to play for BCS title

Knowing full well that this whole thing can blow up in the next two weeks, here are my projections on for the BCS bowls. Understand that all of this can fall apart if Alabama loses to Auburn or Florida loses at Florida State on Saturday. I have to make some other assumptions, like Oklahoma beating Oklahoma State and Oregon State beating Oregon to advance to the Rose Bowl. If you see a flaw in the logic, let me know about it:

1. BCS championship: Alabama-Florida winner vs. Oklahoma: Even though Texas (10-1) and Oklahoma (10-1) are 2-3 in the BCS Standings, if Oklahoma beats No. 12 Oklahoma State (9-2) on Saturday, I believe they will jump over Texas in Sunday’s new BCS Standings. That’s because Texas is playing unranked Texas A&M (4-7). Oklahoma is already No. 2 in the computers and Texas is No. 4. Yeah, Texas beat Oklahoma (45-35) on a neutral field. Is it fair? Probably not. But that is what I think will happen.
