How OSU Gets to the BCS Title Game

Posted by disappointmentzone on 18 November 2007

There is no simple line for OSU back into the BCS Championship Game, but they are definitely still in contention. Looking at the standings the Buckeyes need any two of the following three things to happen in order to play in New Orleans come January.

* The Big 12 South Division champion wins the Big 12 Championship. This would ensure both Kansas (#2) and Missouri (#3) finish the season with another loss. Yesterday you were rooting for Oklahoma to lose. Now you want Oklahoma to win.

* West Virginia loses one of its last two games.

* LSU loses one of its last two games.

There is always a chance that even if two of the three happen that a team like Georgia could leapfrog the Buckeyes, maybe even Arizona State. If all three happen, however, then the Buckeyes should stamp their tickets to the Bayou. There is no way both Georgia and ASU pass OSU.
