This is it! After a full season long college football picks, the road to the BCS finally stops this weekend, as two teams will be vying for spots in the BCS National Championship Game, while the other 118 teams just scramble to make bowls of lesser value.

The chase is really just down to four teams, as the Oregon Ducks and Auburn Tigers are in the driver’s seat, while the two teams waiting like piranhas for them to slip are the TCU Horned Frogs and Stanford Cardinal respectively.

Oregon has the easiest route to get to BCS glory. It has already won the Pac-10 this season and has absolutely no pressure on its back to get to one of the most illustrious bowl games, as it will go to the Rose Bowl to face the Wisconsin Badgers if it loses. However, you can bet that HC Chip Kelly’s club has no interest in the consolation prize this year, especially after winning in Pasadena last season. The Oregon State Beavers have a ton of motivation this season to beat their arch rivals, not just because this is the Civil War, one of the most brutal battles in the country, but because their bowl lives depend on it. After a season in which the Beavers have already suffered losses to three of the Top 10 teams in the nation, they have to face the land’s best. It might be playing at home in front of a raucous crowd at Reser Stadium, but Oregon State is a 16.5 point underdog.

Auburn has a significantly more difficult road to get to Glendale, as it has to take on a team that nearly beat it in the regular season, the South Carolina Gamecocks. We know that QB Cam Newton probably already has the Heisman Trophy wrapped up whether he accounts for ten touchdowns or ten turnovers in this one, but he is clearly going to have to play well if he wants to bring his Tigers to the BCS Championship Game. South Carolina allowed over 330 yards on the ground to these guys when they met at Jordan Hare Stadium, but in spite of that, it still allowed less than 100 yards in total per game in rushing. The Gamecocks have never won the SEC and have never been to a BCS bowl game before. A win sends them to the Sugar Bowl and would make friends for life out of the TCU Horned Frogs. Auburn knows that it will either be going to the title game or the Orange Bowl, but just like Oregon, there is no desire to settle for second best after a season in which virtually everything went right. The oddsmakers are showing some faith in the Gamecocks after their seven point loss on the road in September, lining them at +5.

Should Auburn lose on Saturday, the Arkansas Razorbacks will be shifted out of the BCS and most likely into the Capital One Bowl. Should the Tigers win, college football expert picks are projecting the Hogs in the Sugar Bowl, where they would face either the Stanford Cardinal or the Big East champion.

BCS bids will be handed out in the ACC, Big East, and Big XII as well this weekend, and you can bet that the five clashes surrounding these illustrious bowl bids are going to be hot and heavy, as none of these teams are going to be at large entrants into the BCS.

In the ACC, the Virginia Tech Hokies and Florida State Seminoles meet in the ACC Championship Game in Charlotte. These two teams have met here once before, with Florida State already having shocked the Hokies once for the conference crown. HC Jimbo Fisher just picked up the biggest win of his young coaching career against the Florida Gators last week, and if he nails this one down on Saturday, no one will be questioning whether it was the right time for HC Bobby Bowden to leave Tallahassee or not. The Hokies haven’t lost outright and are 9-1 ATS since losing to the James Madison Dukes way back in September, and they are four point favorites on Saturday night.

In a game running concurrently in primetime, the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Oklahoma Sooners will meet for one last time as conference rivals at Dallas Cowboys Stadium, and the stakes could not be higher. It was a tumultuous season for both in the Big XII, but just as most figured at the outset of the year, the two are fighting it out for a BCS bowl bid. The winner goes to the Fiesta Bowl, most likely to face the Stanford Cardinal. Without knowing what the state of the Nebraska quarterback situation is at this point, the oddsmakers really had no choice but to line the Sooners as 4.5 point favorites.

In the Big East, the Connecticut Huskies are just 60 minutes away from their first conference crown and their first trip to the BCS. They’ll take on the South Florida Bulls, where they are slight one point underdogs. If UConn drops on Saturday, the door will swing open for the West Virginia Mountaineers to make a return trip to the BCS. There is no doubt that the ‘Neers, three TD favorites against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, would capitalize on this opportunity, but should they lose, it would all swing back to the Pittsburgh Panthers, who are two point road dogs against the Cincinnati Bears. Should all three lose, the Huskies would win the Big East and most likely head to the Orange Bowl.

Don’t forget about the MAC and Conference USA Championship Games either. In the MAC on Friday night, the Northern Illinois Huskies, a Top 25 team, take on the Miami Redhawks, where they are favored by 17.5 points. The Conference USA crown will be handed out on Saturday, where the UCF Knights are hosting the biggest game in the history of their new stadium, Bright House Network Stadium Field on Saturday afternoon. They are nine point favorites over the SMU Mustangs.

The biggest favorites of the weekend are the Boise State Broncos, who are just praying that they can make enough of a statement against the Utah State Aggies to make it to a BCS bowl game. The chances are very, very slim at best, but the men from the Smurf Turf are favored by 38 points regardless.
