Very interesting...the team ranked third in the BCS ratings, and the one most likely to leap into the Fiesta Bowl should either Miami or Ohio State lose, is Washington State. I had assumed earlier that Oklahoma would remain the fallback selection, but according to the numbers now out, Wazzou appears to have the position solidly in control. Imagine the controversy if Ohio State goes through its annual choke vs. Michigan--the Cougars, who lost pretty easily to the Buckeyes, would probably get selected for the Fiesta Bowl. Texas is now in fifth, but realistically only have a chance to go to any BCS bowl if Oklahoma loses again, and the Longhorns back in to the Big-12 championship.
