Projecting BCS bowl matchups
Alabama is out of the title game, plus next teams in line for each bid
One year and one week ago, we discussed the possibility of a one-loss Alabama team getting back into the BCS title picture after its loss to LSU. That team needed three undefeated teams in front of them to lose -- Boise State, Oklahoma State and Stanford -- and all three of them did. We know how the rest of the season played out.
Now this year's Alabama team, along with Georgia, is in a similar situation, needing two of the three undefeated teams in front of them to lose. But it's also a possibility that the Crimson Tide could be left out of the BCS entirely, as they are in my latest BCS bowl projections. Let's take a look at those projections for this week, as well as the next teams in line for each bid.
