Who plays in the national title game if the following occurs:
1) Notre Dame gets blown out by USC this weekend 45-14
2) Alabama loses to Georgia in the SEC Championship 28-7
3) Georgia gets upset this weekend by Ga Tech 35-14
4) Florida loses to Florida St this weekend 49-14
5) Oregon loses to Oregon St this weekend 38-31
6) K.State loses to Texas this weekend 42-7
7) LSU gets upset by Arkansas this weekend 21-20
8) Stanford loses to UCLA this weekend 35-17
9) Texas A&M gets upset at Mizzou this weekend 24-21
10) Florida St loses to Clemson in ACC Championship 42-28
11) Clemson loses to S.Carolina this weekend 21-17
13) Oklahoma loses to Okl St this weekend 42-35
14) Nebraska loses to Iowa this weekend 14-13
15) Oregon St loses to UCLA in Pac 12 Championship 35-34
That would leave #12 SCarolina as the highest ranked team without a loss in the last week or in there conference championships. Texas would be the next highest ranked team @ #16 to end there season with a win over K.State, but, #17 UCLA could possibly overtake them with 3 season ending wins vs USC, Stanford and Oregon St...
So, what would happen in this scenario? Who'd play the BCS Title?
This is just for fun, so, assume all these things actually happen and tell me who'd you'd choose to play in the title game...
IMO, NDame would likely still get in because of only having 1 loss.. I'd probably go with Oregon as the other team, considering there 2 losses were both close, 1 in overtime and both losses being to highly ranked teams... The great thing would be there'd be about 15 teams with a shot and the BCS would be in a major turmoil.. I'd love it..

I know you're doing this just for fun ... but realistically, the only teams with a shot are the top 5 or 6 as they sit now. If you've sketched out a scenario where everyone loses a game before the end of the year, then nothing really changes and we'd still see Notre Dame vs. Alabama. Everyone would just have one more loss.
You should do a parlay card with all of that on it. If it happens then you win a lot of money. Otherwise, like someone else said, Alabama and Notre Dame will probably play since everyone in your scenario would have another loss.
My money would be on ND and UGA since they'll have an extra win over the #2 team right before the final rankings come out. No way Oregon plays it with their strength of schedule and two losses.
I know you're joking and a little hypothetical, but Georgia Tech isn't very good, Arkansas is awful, and Texas is mediocre. Aside from those 3 games, I think that could be a realistic possibility. But think of it this way, I don't know much about Georgia Tech aside from they run the triple option but I did notice they lost to Middle Tennessee by 21, and BYU by 24. They're bowl eligible, but don't seem very good. Arkansas would have to rely 100% on the passing game against LSU, who usually has one of the best defenses in the country, and Texas would have to some how duplicate the offensive results that Baylor had, and Texas simply does not have fire power to do that. The rest of them, I guess are possible. Maybe not in the blow out fashion that was suggested, but a loss, yeah could be possible.

You're also forgetting that in that scenario UGA would have a loss against unranked 6-5 Georgia Tech. That would cancel out the gains they'd make by beating Alabama.
Also, this year the Pac 12 is up and Oregon's schedule strength is right in line with the other top teams. Sagarin ratings of Oregon's opponents:
#10 Oregon St.
#28 Arizona St.
#41 Fresno St.
#57 Arkansas St.
#100 Washington St.
#176 Tennessee Tech
Well, you've got me there, but Georgia Tech would be 7-5 with a win over a top 10 team, increasing their rating quite a bit. The win over Bama in the SEC championship still holds a good bit of weight in my mind.
I'll admit to making an assumption on UGA's schedule, but upon review, it seems they've been VERY blessed with a cake walk in-conference schedule by SEC standards. Weak SEC East plus only playing Ole Miss and Auburn out of the west SHOULD be a guaranteed 1 loss season at worst.
Matt Barkley is out this weekend so ND will go undefeated....and the winner of Alabama/Georgia will play ND.

Needs to be Bama for SEC to have a chance. IMO
Quite possibly, but, I do think Ga Tech has a real shot to beat Georgia saturday because of there style of play and being a big rivalry game where records don't mean as much.. If Ga loses this week and then beats Bama in the SEC title game, I don't think they make the BCS Championship..
