Texas Longhorns | Bowl Projections

The math of the Bowl Championship Series standings is very simple if LSU and Oklahoma State keep winning. And that is what the Tigers and Cowboys did last weekend by beating Western Kentucky and Texas Tech, respectively, by a combined score of 108-15.


Those impressive efforts keep the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the country as the projected participants in the BCS title game.

The picture for the rest of the BCS games got turned upside down with the losses of Stanford and Boise State and require both to find their way in as at-large candidates.
Oregon now moves into the Rose Bowl after its defeat of the Cardinal. Houston is in line to grab a spot as the top champion from a league that does not automatically qualify. Cincinnati falls out after its loss to West Virginia and an injury to quarterback Zach Collaros. Virginia Tech moves ahead of Clemson as the winner of the ACC.

While projecting the rest of the games, some conferences may not be able to fulfill their allotment. An asterisk indicates a school has filled a vacant spot.
