During the Capital One Bowl, the annoying color analyst who always talks about food brought up the Plus 1 game fomula that would try and make there be a more true national championship.  Here is how I would set it up:

First, there would need to be five BCS bowl games, as follows:

Rose-Big 10 v. Pac-10
Sugar-SEC v. at-large
Fiesta-at-large v. at-large
Orange-ACC v. Big East
Cotton-Big 12 v. at-large

The two best at-large teams would play in the Fiesta.  The color analyst at the Capital One Bowl picked the Capital One Bowl as his fifth bowl game, which is stupid beyond belief.  BCS bowls do not have sponsor names.  Sure it is the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, but it isn't the Tostitos Bowl.  No major corporate sponsorship should touch the sacred bowl names.

If this season had a Plus One set-up, it would look like this:

Rose-Penn St. v. USC
Sugar-Florida v. Texas Tech
Fiesta-Texas v. Alabama
Orange-Virginia Tech v. Cincinnati
Cotton-Oklahoma v. Utah

With this set-up, all bowl games are played on January 1st.  I would predict the outcome would be like this:

Rose-USC>Penn St.
Sugar-Florida>Texas Tech
Fiesta-Alabama>Texas
Orange-Cincinnati>Virginia Tech
Cotton-Oklahoma>Utah

So they would do another BCS rankings which would end up looking like this:

1. Oklahoma
2. Florida
3. Alabama
4. USC
5. Texas

Oklahoma and Florida would play in the national championship game a week later.  That's how it would work.  Maybe it wouldn't make a big difference this year, but one upset could turn this into a playoff-like atmosphere.
