Why should we have expected anything else? Of course No. 1 and No. 2 lost again. That now begs the question, who will be No. 1 and No. 2 going into the bowls?
Both LSU and Virginia Tech may be better in the computers than the Buckeyes, which is why the opponent for
Oklahoma may actually be the favorite team among the voters because the Sooners were the most impressive team today, but they are among the worst teams in the computers among the top 10, even considering the win over Missouri. Unless the voters are overwhelming in support of OU, they figure to get left out.
All this depends on the voters doing what you expect them to do, and as I've said many times, that's a bit of a sucker's bet. We could end up getting a big surprise tomorrow instead.
And since the BCS title game features No. 1 vs. No. 2, the only certainty is that somehow, someway, both teams will lose.
