Boise State Vs. Hawaii: Where Does Win Put Broncos In BCS Race?

SB Nation's One Bronco Nation Under God pores over the possibilities for a Boise State BCS bowl bid (excuse our alliteration) following the Broncos' decisive win over Hawaii. The possibilities are, shall we say, less than rosy:

Possibilities for an undefeated Boise State
For now, we're working under the assumption that Boise State finishes the year undefeated. I feel much better about that assumption after watching the defense dominate Hawaii this past weekend. Nevada is a good team, but I know I was more worried about Hawaii's passing attack giving our defense fits then Nevada's run game.
Let's run down the BCS bowl games and the possibilities of Boise State playing in each.

National Championship Game
As of this week, Boise State sits at #4 in the BCS rankings and the gap behind #3 TCU has widened. For Boise State to keep it's National Championship dreams alive, I believe they are 2 upsets away. Between TCU, Oregon and Auburn, 2 of those teams will have to lose a game.
