With USC now winning the Pac10, and being that they are rated above PSU, even if Missouri beats OK, PSU wouldn't get into the Championship game.
It is sad that even though PSU has a better record against common opponents, USC gets ranked above them.
Potentially even worse would be if OK loses and then the BCS inserts a team which didn't even win its' conference.
A PSU victory in the Rose bowl over USC would be just one more cry for an NCAA Playoff to decide who is best on the field and not in the PC.
It now seems like every year, the BCS system for determing a National Championship becomes more and more a joke and a tainted trophy for the awarded team?
PSU can prove the BCS wrong by beating USC in the Rose Bowl. They won't though because USC is the better team
USC might be the better team, but Penn State is winning it. So there.
