BCS Standings Week 8: Virtual Play-In Opportunity For Oklahoma, Oklahoma State

It's not right, and it's not ideal, but the first set of 2011 BCS rankings has set up a chance for the Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma St. Cowboys to control their own destinies, so to speak. The two are ranked No. 3 and 4, respectively.

Since they play each other, and the No. 1 LSU Tigers and No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide also have a veritable semifinals matchup of their own if all plays out, there are four schools in the country who have nothing to complain about this time around. Four out of 10 unbeatens. That sucks, but it's better than three!

But one Big 12 school that does have a bone to pick: the undefeated, No. 11 Kansas St. Wildcats. The computers love them -- if the machines had their way, K-State would rank No. 7, putting them in line for high BCS standing if total catastrophe happened at the top. As it is, they'll have to step it up just to make a consolation BCS game.
