13/10,000ths of a Point. Sic 'Em Bears!

13/10,000ths of a point.  Yes, that's 0.0013.  That's all that stands in the way of Baylor and being ranked third in the BCS ahead of Ohio State.
          Things are falling into place for Baylor, however they are not entirely in control of their own destiny when it comes to the BCS National Championship picture.  While they must win the remainder of their games (including against #10 Oklahoma State this weekend in Stillwater) to have a chance, Florida State or Alabama (or great would that be?) must lose. 

If both of those things happen, the Green and Gold will wave in Pasadena. 

          With a win this weekend over Oklahoma State the BCS will have no choice but to place Baylor ahead of Ohio State and into third place.  Meanwhile, Florida State is playing Idaho this weekend (who stand at 1 and 9 and lost to Old Dominion last weekend).  They will win that game.  However, their true test will come against Florida on November 30th.  Florida just gave then #10 South Carolina a good run for their money, losing 19-14 to two fourth quarter field goals.  Their defense is going to have to show up, then who knows.

          Alabama doesn't have a walk in the park either... Teams in the SEC never do.  Auburn hosts them in the Iron Bowl on November 30th and could give them some trouble.

So, if anyone needs me on the 30th of November, don't bother.  I'm booked.
