So Easy, A Caveman Can Do It

In the Guru's two and a half seasons of being, well, the Guru, there has never been an easier weekend to put together a projection for the BCS standings. I'm looking at John Parker Wilson here, so yes, Alabama is still playing, but it's all done.

Not a SINGLE team in last week's top 15 lost. Not one. I figured it was going to be ho-hum this Saturday, but not comatose.

So, not to waste any more of your, or my time, here's the projected top 15, with just one change from last week: I expect BYU to move up from No. 17 to No. 15, thus assuring that a non-BCS conference team will be invited to a BCS bowl, no matter what happens.

The Guru's projected BCS standings for Week 12:

1. Alabama, 2. Texas Tech, 3. Texas, 4. Florida, 5. Oklahoma, 6. USC, 7. Utah, 8. Penn State, 9. Boise State, 10. Georgia, 11. Ohio State, 12. Missouri, 13. Oklahoma State, 14. Ball State, 15. Brigham Young.

BCS Doomsday Scenario #1:
Michigan finally puts together a complete game and beats Ohio State, while Penn State beats Michigan State, leaving the BigTen with only PennState in the top 14 to take the last at-large spot. BCS is forced to take BOTH Boise and BYU/Utah winner.

BCS Doomsday Scenario #2:
Cinci beats Pitt this week, but loses in the Islands to Hawaii after a "half way around the world" road trip, resulting in a Big East 10-3 Big East champ playing a 10-3 or 9-4 ACC champ in the Orange Bowl.

I see that both BYU and TCU passed Ball State in the real BCS rankings this week...

Any chance that if BYU beats Utah, either Utah or TCU end up going to a BCS Bowl instead of BYU (assuming Boise State and Ball State losses)?

I can understand that with 4 non-BCS teams in the top 15 it a virtual guarantee that one of them will get a BCS invite, but what would have to hapeen for two of them to get invites?

I'd love to see a Guru post on the topic.
