Don’t forget Alabama and Texas Tech either, should they win. Or Utah, for that matter, were the Utes to pull the upset.
It’s interesting to note that in the past few days I’ve noticed more pundits arguing in favor of the other version of the “plus-one”, where they play five BCS games and then have a revote for a new number one and number two to play in the championship. It sounds like an attractive solution for this season, with as many teams having a “we deserve to be there” argument as there are, but with the right (or maybe wrong) matchups and results, it would be easy to have a situation where you wind up with more contenders than there are slots in the title game. And in years when the field isn’t as deep as this one, ugh.
