I just heard a scenario for the BCS that would have Oklahoma and Texas in the BCS title game. The argument is that Florida, which trails Texas by .0372 in the BCS standings, does better than Texas in the polls but worse in the computer rankings. The question is, will their victory over Alabama give them enough of a boost in the computer rankings to propel them ahead of UT, which currently stands third but rates to move up to second when Alabama drops. If Florida cannot overtake UT, the national championship game would be Oklahoma #1 versus Texas #2. If you want to know more about how this works, click here and here.
