If NO teams finish undefeated... And LSU & Bama finish with one loss from the other... Are you all ok with them playing in the BCS National Title Game?

or

Oklahoma & Oklahoma State doing the same thing?

or

Nebraska vs Wisconsin?

or

Clemson vs Virginia Tech?

Basically what I'm getting at is... are you all ok with 2 teams from the same conference playing for a National Title even if they are the #1 and #2 teams?

Couldn't happen for OU/osu. They only play each other once.

It would depend on the nature of the loss, and what type of losses the rest of the top four or five teams had.

If the #1 and #2 teams' losses to each other were very close, I might be okay with it if the rest of the contenders had worse losses either by a huge margin or to a unranked or low ranked team.

There would have to be a pretty clear division in how they played in comparison to the #3-#5 teams, and they would probably also have to have wins over at least one of those teams for me to agree with it. Even then I don't know, you'd have to have a situation where all the other conferences' top teams all had two or more losses. I think you'd have to have a situation where just about all the other teams severely underperformed, which is pretty unlikely.

That's why it could happen.... All the other teams in the same conference only play each other once too.

I realize this is unlikely... I'm not asking if you think it will happen. I'm asking if you are ok with it.

Add no one votes on the BCS rankings anyway... its a formula

The formula takes into account two polls that are voted on:

"The BCS Average is calculated by averaging the percent totals of the Harris Interactive and USA TODAY Polls, and Computer rankings. "
BCS standings: Auburn finishes No. 1 ahead of Oregon, TCU - USATODAY.com

Anyway... I wouldn't be okay with it. The NC game should always involve two teams from different conferences.

Taking into account a poll that is voted on as part of a formula... and saying the voters decide are 2 different things.

Why...?

Voters can affect the BCS poll at the end of the season. That's all I'm saying.
