2010 Bowl Projections: Rose Bowl Likely For TCU

The top three of the BCS standings are likely to remain the same tonight when the latest BCS rankings are unveiled. The Oregon Ducks are going to sit atop the rankings with the Auburn Tigers second. Oregon and Auburn, assuming they win their games next weak, would be slated to play in the BCS Championship game in Glendale, Arizona.


Third in the rankings will certainly be the TCU Horned Frogs, who finished off their perfect regular season against New Mexico on Saturday, winning 66-17. This would make the Horned Frogs eligible for selection to the Rose Bowl, where they would face the top Big 10 team. This year, the Big 10 champion is being decided by the team ranked highest in the BCS standings since there is a three way tie between Wisconsin, Michigan State and Ohio State. Wisconsin is ranked fourth in the AP and USA Today polls and it's likely they'll be ranked fourth in the BCS standings as well.


If everything holds up - Oregon defeating Oregon State and Auburn beating South Carolina in the SEC title game - then we'll see the Horned Frogs play their next game in Pasadena against the Wisconsin Badgers in the Rose Bowl.
