Today, and on this day for the previous 15 years, we debate whether the BCS got it right. This year, like most, it did with a championship game that matches Florida State and Auburn.
The nations lone undefeated team against the champion of the reigning conference kingpin, it makes sense. Theres a circle back sense about this one. The Seminoles met an SEC team, Tennessee, in the first BCS title game.
The rest of the BCS bowls fell into place as expected after Saturdays results. Every year, a team gets that left-out feeling, and this year its Oregon. At No. 10, the Ducks were the highest-rated eligible team in the final BCS standings to get omitted, and that happened because the Sugar Bowl selected Oklahoma, 11th in the final BCS standings, as an at-large team to face Alabama, which finished fourth.
