If UCLA loses next week to Stanford that's one team the MAC champion is likely to pass, but there might still be too many teams ahead of them to get into the top 16. If it did happen, the BCS games would probably look like:

BCS: Notre Dame (BCS no. 1) vs. Alabama (BCS no. 2)
Rose: Stanford (Pac-12) vs. Nebraska/Wisconsin (B1G)
Fiesta: Kansas State (Big XII) vs. Oregon (BCS at-large)
Sugar: Florida (BCS at-large) vs. Louisville/Rutgers (Big East)
Orange: Florida State/Georgia Tech (ACC) vs. Kent State/Northern Illinois (BCS at-large)
Nailed it
