We'll have our own complete Week 11 college football bowl projections along later, but here's a good look at where other experts are picking the chips to fall.

A little clarity at the very top of the BCS standings, but not all that much. Now that we can pencil the LSU Tigers in for the national title game in New Orleans -- with erasers poised, mind you -- we can also wonder whether the Oklahoma St. Cowboys can hold on for the other spot.

Our BCS bowl projections have the Oklahoma Sooners knocking off OK State along the way, putting the Stanford Cardinal in the driver's seat. But the Alabama Crimson Tide and Boise St. Broncos still have arguments to make, as does everybody else too because this entire bowl racket is a scam. But you know what I mean.

Certain bowls are starting to take shape, such as the Orange Bowl and others with autobids for conference champs, while others remain all over the place. This week's bowl projections by and ESPN's Brad Edwards and Mark Schlabach,, and
