BCS Championship Game 2011: Alabama And LSU Are In, Oklahoma State Is Out

Oklahoma State has officially been left out of the BCS Championship game. Despite their thrashing of Oklahoma Saturday night, voters and computers were not convinced that the Cowboys were the second best team in the country.

The coaches poll (and the AP poll) kept OSU at No. 3, and the Harris poll voters did the same. The Cowboys still could hope that the computers – which liked the Big 12 much better than human voters – would make up the difference. They did not, and Alabama will play LSU for the national championship game.

Mike Gundy said after the results were released that he believes in the [BCS] system. He may be one of very few OSU fans, alumni and followers who does, and he’s certainly in the vast minority across the country. OSU beat more BCS ranked teams and more above-.500 teams, but could not not overcome their loss to Iowa State.

Oklahoma State will instead face Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl on Monday night, January 2. The game will be broadcast on ESPN.

BCS Championship 2011: Oklahoma State Appears Likely To Be Left Out

Tweets from various sources Sunday afternoon present an ominous situation for Oklahoma State and their hopes of playing in this season’s BCS Championship game. The Cowboys blew out their in-state rival Oklahoma Sooners Saturday night to the tune of 44-10, but they needed to make up significant ground on Alabama in the BCS Rankings. Preliminary indications via Twitter are that they failed to do so.

@jppalm
Sources tell me it’s official: LSU-Alabama, the sequel.

@CecilHurt
The AT&T Cotton Bowl just tweeted that they will have the “only” Big 12-SEC matchup.

Oklahoma State was ranked third in the BCS Rankings behind LSU and Alabama leading into the final week and needed to gain ground in the computer rankings and human poll. While they likely made up ground in the computers, Oklahoma’s unimpressive showing against a mediocre Texas Tech team and its second loss at Baylor, combined with Oklahoma State’s utter dominance Saturday night, might have made them look like a less impressive opponent to voters, many of whom may also have already made up their mind whether or not they wanted to see a sequel of the Alabama vs. LSU game.
