Baylor win helping TCU pass Boise in BCS?

October, 31, 2010
TCU is now No. 3 in the BCS behind Oregon and Auburn (the Ducks jumped ahead of the Tigers this week).

The Horned Frogs are barely in front of Boise State thanks to the computer rankings. But they could extend that margin if they beat Utah on the road. The Utes are No. 5 in the BCS and the two face each other Saturday in Salt Lake City.

It seems odd that TCU would pass Boise after beating UNLV. But I wonder if Baylor's win over Texas didn't really give TCU a boost. Baylor is now No. 21 in the BCS and beat the Longhorns on the road. The Horned Frogs' 45-10 win over the Bears looks better and better with each week.

I wonder, though, what happens if Auburn were to lose and there's a one-loss SEC team out there (like Alabama, for instance). Would TCU play for a national title over a one-loss SEC team? Seems doubtful. But that's a discussion for later down the road as long as TCU takes care of business against Utah in a tough game Saturday.
