The way I have figured it LSU needs two things to happen to jump to # 2 in the BCS rankings, assuming both LSU & USC take care of business Saturday: 1) A Syracuse win over ND will guarantee that LSU takes 6 of the 7 computer polls. (LSU 2.0 / USC 2.83). This will also adjust the SOS in favor of LSU but barely! (LSU 1.64 / USC 1.68). 2) Georgia MUST retain at least a # 9 spot in the BCS allowing LSU the 0.2 Quality Win points. (LSU -0.2 / USC -0) Now, given that pollsters do not change votes without a compelling reason i.e. a loss, (LSU 3.0 / USC 2.0) BCS rankings if both of those things happen: (LSU 6.44 / USC 6.51) LSU takes second place by .07 points! Further, ND is a 2 point favorite so we need an upset. Georgia has 5.56 points to give before they slide to # 10 in the BCS with their loss. 1 point for the loss / -0.1 Quality Win for the Tennessee jump / -.36 for SOS / The computer polls will not drop them far for losing to # 3 LSU - projection 2.02 conservatively / This leaves Georgia 3 places to fall in the Human polls with the loss. That is 209 points AP and 179 points ESPN/COACHES. This seems likely, unless they just completely fall apart for the national audience. Conclusion, listen to Coach Saban and focus winning the SEC. The rest (LET'S GO ORANGE) will take care of itself. AAHHHHH!
