Coaches' Poll out, NIU at 16 and Nebraska at 21. Looking more like NIU is headed for Miami.

Quite possible. Probably down to Florida and OU for the last at-large (assuming Oregon's a lock). And Florida's likely to be ranked higher in the BCS polling.

Both Florida and Oregon are locked-in as #3 and #4. OU is only in if NIU doesn't get to #16.

They have to climb to 13th in the computers. I don't think it's happening.

Right, forgot that 3 AND 4 were guaranteed if they were both at-large. For whatever reason I was thinking only the top at-large was, but that was changed when they expanded to 5 BCS bowls wasn't it?

We'll see how the computers feel about NIU.

NIU's computer average last week was 23, but it was ahead of Boise State's 30. The two human polls both had them in the Top 20, and we know the Coaches poll has them at 16, so if the Harris Poll has them at 16 they should be in no matter what

apparently there is still a lot stuff going on behind the scenes with A&M/UT/The Big 12. So that is why they werent going to be taken. But if NIU gets in then it would OU in the Cotton Bowl.

IIRC it is any team that finishes #3 without a conference autobid gets locked in for an at-large, and if there is another one available then if #4 is without a conference autobid also gets an auto at-large. That's the case this year.

I believe the rule was put in after K-State got skipped over to the Alamo Bowl when they lost their CCG in 98 finished #3.

That's probably only true if Nebraska finishes top 10 in the computers. They are not moving up after last night.

NIU to the Orange pretty much sets K-State/Oregon in the Fiesta and Texas A&M-Oklahoma in the Cotton.

NIU is actually a decent BCS buster unlike Kent State...that game will be better than the Sugar Bowl.

Will NIU's coach even be there for it after taking the NC State job?

Will be interested to see who gets the Holiday Bowl. There's been some talk of WVU there, but if that doesn't happen it prettymuch guarantees a Backyard Brawl Bowl in NY.

Virginia Tech looking like they're headed to the Russell Athletic Bowl, once the Champs Sports Bowl and CarQuest Bowl, and Blockbuster Bowl, Visit Florida Tangerine Bowl among others. Probably going to draw Rutgers

BSU vs FSU would be much more entertaining. NIU doesn't have the defense to stop FSU, BSU does.

Hmmm, if A&M is going to Dallas than I guess the Dawgs are either playing Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl or Clemson in the Peach Bowl (they also play them in the start of next season). Could they give a Clemson/South Carolina rematch in the Peach Bowl? Im sure their fans would love that.
