After analyzing each schedule, I've come to the conclusion that there is a distinct possibility that Notre Dame, Oregon and Kansas State all have the potential to lose. Notre Dame is statistically the luckiest BCS team to date, and I have little doubt that USC will pound them. Oregon has tough games against Stanford, Oregon State and either USC again or a UCLA team that has come on very strong. Kansas State has one potential stumbling block @Texas, who has been playing well as of late. I feel that K-State is the most complete team of the three, and I give them the best chance of finishing undefeated. Entertain this scenario: All three lose, and Alabama wins out. Who goes to Miami?
I don't think many voters would drop a one-loss Oregon team below Florida. I just have a very hard time believing that.

That's also assuming Florida beats FSU.
I wonder how the voters would respond if Ore loses one of the remaining games, either KSU / ND goes undefeated, and we win out. Would the voters chose UA ore Ore to play in the championship? Although unlikely, I haven't heard any of the talking heads discuss the scenario.
One loss SEC champion >>>> one loss PAC 12 champion, although the gap isn't quite as big this year as in years past. I'd like to see how close the BCS ranks a one loss SEC champion compared to an undefeated, no conference Notre Lame.
3-4 weeks ago I would have given Texas almost no chance to upset K-State but since that time I've noticed the Longhorns have simplified everything and as a result are much better. That's a game I'm personally watching closely.

There has been no discussion on it because it doesn't warrant one. We will be ahead in the computers and a 1 loss defending NC and current SECC in Alabama would get in over 1 loss Oregon. I think this would be almost a certainty, hopefully we will have the chance to find out.
