Staying Alive For The Conference Title - Big Ten, Pac Ten, & Big 12
Penn State - The Nittany Lions control their own destiny. A win against Michigan State clinches the Rose Bowl for them.
Ohio State - The Buckeyes need to beat Michigan and have Michigan State beat Penn State.
Michigan State - The Spartans need to beat Penn State and have Michigan beat Ohio State.
Oregon State - The Beavers need to win both of the games against Arizona and USC to win the Pac Ten. If they lose one of the two, USC has to lose to UCLA. If the loss is against Oregon, then a tiebreaker between the three teams is put in place. Since they each would've a 1-1 record against each other...the next tiebreaker is against their record against the next highest teams in the Pac-10. Cal and/or Arizona would have to finish higher than Stanford. That would eliminate Oregon, and Oregon State holds the tiebreaker of head to head over USC>
USC - The Trojans need to beat UCLA and have Arizona or Oregon beat Oregon State. If USC loses to UCLA, the Trojans need Oregon State to lose to both teams...OR in the case of a three way tie...Stanford has to finish higher than UCLA or California to eliminate the Beavers. USC holds the head to head tiebreaker over Oregon.
Oregon - The Ducks best bet is for a 3 way tie. In that case they would've beaten Oregon State. UCLA, who would have to beat USC, would have to finish higher than California which would knock out the Trojans. Oregon would hold the tiebreaker over Oregon State through head to head.
Big 12 North
Missouri - This is easy...they have clinched the Big 12 North and will play in the conference championship game.
Big 12 South
Texas Tech - The Red Raiders control their own destiny. If they win against Oklahoma they are in the title game. If the Red Raiders lose to Oklahoma, the Sooners must lose to Oklahoma State the following week. If Tech loses to Oklahoma and ends in a 3 way tie with Texas and Oklahoma, they have to finish the highest in the BCS Standings of those teams to go to the Big 12 Title game.
Oklahoma - Oklahoma must beat Texas Tech and Oklahoma State. Then they would have to hope to finish higher in the BCS Standings if all 3 teams (Texas, Texas Tech, and Oklahoma) are tied with a 7-1 record.
Texas - Texas has to hope for Oklahoma to beat Texas Tech, then finish higher in the BCS Standings than Texas Tech and Oklahoma. Also, the Longhorns can go if Oklahoma beats Texas Tech, but loses to Oklahoma State...Texas Tech would have to also lose to Baylor and Texas would have to beat Texas A&M.
Check out the standings for all of the BCS Conferences and you'll notice that even after 9, 10, or 11 games, the races are still unsettled. Below are my best interpretations of what needs to happen for teams to win their conference title, or in some cases get to their conference championship game.
There is a lot of information here so I'll just give you the Big Ten, Pac Ten, and Big 12 in this post. Later I will add another article with the ACC, Big East, and SEC.
