It looks like it will be a rematch in the BCS title game as only a major upset or a dramatic shift by voters can prevent LSU and Alabama meeting again in the BCS national championship game. The Tigers and Crimson Tide hold down the top two spots for the second straight week, and by a wide margin over third-place Oklahoma State. Stanford is fourth and Virginia Tech fifth.

LSU (1.000 BCS average) is a unanimous No. 1 in both the coaches’ poll and the Harris poll, and is the top-ranked team in the computer ratings as well. Alabama (.9551) is an overwhelming No. 2 in the polls and second in the computers.

Oklahoma State (.8712), with one game left against Oklahoma on Saturday, is third in the computer ratings and fifth in the polls.

LSU (12-0) plays Georgia in the Southeastern Conference championship game on Saturday. If LSU wins that contest the Tigers earn a spot in the Allstate BCS National Championship Game Jan. 9 in New Orleans. If the Tigers lose to the Bulldogs, they still have a chance to remain in the BCS top two and play for the national title.

Alabama meanwhile is done with their season.

Oklahoma State plays Oklahoma on Saturday in the Bedlam game, with the chance for another statement victory against a good team. However, with the Cowboys fifth in both polls it would take an enormous swing by the voters to push them past either SEC team.
