If my system were the basis of the BCS selections, here is my hypothetical projection of how the bowls would be arranged
:
  • BCS Championship Game: Louisiana State vs. Oklahoma State
  • Rose Bowl: Michigan State vs. Oregon
  • Fiesta Bowl: Oklahoma vs. Stanford
  • Sugar Bowl: Alabama vs. Houston
  • Orange Bowl: Virginia Tech vs. Louisville
And here are my actual BCS predictions:
  • BCS Championship Game: Louisiana State vs. Alabama
  • Rose Bowl: Oregon vs. Wisconsin
  • Fiesta Bowl: Oklahoma vs. Stanford
  • Sugar Bowl: Michigan vs. Houston
  • Orange Bowl: Virginia Tech vs. Louisville
