The top two teams in the final BCS rankings will play for the national title in the Orange Bowl. The champions of six leagues -- the ACC, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-10 and the SEC -- receive automatic berths in one of the four BCS bowls (Orange, Sugar, Rose and Fiesta). There are also two at-large berths available to non-league champion teams from BCS conferences, to independents and to teams from non-BCS leagues. Utah, of the non-BCS Mountain West, will earn one of those at-large berths if it finishes at or above the No. 6 spot it occupies today. So, if the season ended today, the Trojans and Sooners would play for the title, with Miami, Auburn, Wisconsin and West Virginia earning the other automatic conference champion berths and Utah in based on its No. 6 ranking. That leaves just one at-large berth up for grabs, as things currently stand, between FSU, Cal, UGa, both UT's -- Texas and Tennessee -- and Michigan.
In other words, along with taking care of their own business over the final four games of the season, the Horns will need some help to move into BCS bowl territory.
