"That's all"? No comment on a 10-2 Nebraska or Michigan being selected? I'm not saying they would be, but I don't think the possibility can be completely ignored. One factor might be how Luck is looking for the Heisman when it comes to be selection time; not that him not winning would make it impossible, but him winning definitely would help things.

but don't forget...

Stanford loses to Cal

No BCS, Alamo or Holiday Bowl

Probability?

Stanford loses to ND

No BCS, Alamo Bowl

I agree with Todd that you can't assume that the entire range of Bowl options for Stanford (assuming they win out) is BCS CG, Rose, and Fiesta. I'm sure there are permutations that could put us in Sugar as well. But beyond that, it is definitely in the realm of possibility that a 2 loss Big10 team is chosen for Fiesta.

Oh, and in the first scenario, don't you think Houston needs to lose as well? You don't think an undefeated Houston gets any consideration?

Hank

If Houston finishes unbeaten they'll likely be ranked highly enough to get a BCS bid, but I don't think that would bounce the Cardinal. I think Virginia Tech would lose out. There's no way that a two-loss ACC team will be taken above an 11-1 Andrew-Luck-led Stanford team.

And yes, I'm ignoring two-loss Big Ten teams. I don't think they'll figure in the equation.
