The Way It Should Be

The final BCS standings were released and No. 5 10-1 Oregon is out, but No. 22 8-4 Florida State is in just because it won the ACC conference championship. Huh? Last year Pitt was the lame duck, this year it's the mighty Seminoles. This year worked out perfectly for the BCS, the two top teams are the only unbeatens, but are they the two best teams in the nation? Probably, but it would still be fun to see some sort of a playoff because it does not always work out perfectly for the BCS every year. According to my previous post on the BCS solution, this is how I think the college football post season should have panned out using the final BCS standings and conference champions that have a championship game.

The BCS Playoff

Rose Bowl- Southern Cal 12-0 vs Penn State 10-1

Fiesta Bowl- Oregon 10-1 vs Ohio State 9-2
