Kansas State and Clemson lost, leaving six unbeaten teams. Any hope the Wildcats or Tigers had of playing in the Bowl Championship Series title game likely came to an end.
But the outlook improved for Oklahoma State, Stanford, Boise State and Oklahoma, according to the BCS Guru.
The Guru projects that the order of the top six teams in the BCS standings will be Louisiana State, Alabama, Oklahoma State, Stanford, Boise State and Oklahoma. The official standings won't be released until Sunday night, but with LSU and Alabama playing this Saturday in Tuscaloosa, Oklahoma State likely will be in position to move into the No. 2 slot next week.
Can the Cowboys hold on and get a spot in the BCS title game? They play host to Kansas State on Saturday, then travel to Texas Tech and Iowa State before playing host to Oklahoma in the regular-season finale.
If they lose, well, then it gets complicated. This is far from over.
