So we are down to this scenario. One team from the SEC will play one team from the Big 12 in the BCS National Championship game, we just have no idea who.
While Alabama, Florida, and Oklahoma all get a chance to figure it out for themselves, Texas will be at home watching that big, beautiful Godzillatron they spent some of their National Champion money on in hopes that Missouri can do what they couldn't do last week against Kansas -- outscore Sam Bradford.
The BCS Rankings came out this morning and they were what most expected. Alabama stayed on top with their undefeated record in the SEC, Oklahoma was second, followed by Texas, USC, Utah, Texas Tech and Penn State.
What does this mean for Oklahoma?
Well, as I said earlier, the Sooners get a chance to take on Chase Daniels in San Antonio for a second straight year. Last year, Oklahoma embarrassed Missouri 38-17 but haven't faced the Tigers since. Like the Big 12 has been for most of 2008, it will be offensive-minded, with Oklahoma touting the third ranked offense in the nation and Missouri with the sixth.
Texas won't have a say in any of it, getting jumped by Oklahoma because the BCS committee (and most logical people in the country) thought the win over Oklahoma State by the Sooners was more impressive than the Longhorns trumping the Aggies. If the Sooners win, Texas will most likely head to the Fiesta Bowl to play Ohio State.
Alabama and Florida basically are assured a spot in either the BCS National Championship or the Sugar Bowl. The loser of the SEC Championship, set for Saturday at 4:00 PM EST, will play Utah in the BCS bowl.
Penn State and USC are set to face off in the Rose Bowl and Boston College will face Cincinnati in the
