07:37 AM ET 11.18 | The BCS is coming down the home stretch, sputtering to a finish. It's all almost over. The four-team playoff and selection committee are coming next year. This is the last season anyone has worry about this. Everything is hypothetical. And it doesn't matter, because No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Florida State aren't losing anyway. The chatter is endless. Here's a sure thing. Next week, if No. 4 Baylor beats No. 10 Oklahoma State, the Bears are going to pass No. 3 Ohio State in the BCS standings. And here's a thought - if No. 1 or No. 2 did lose, you'd sure want to be No. 3. That all became clear Sunday night, when Ohio State's lead over the Bears was revealed to have dwindled even more. Ohio State was No. 3 with a BCS number of .8869, while Baylor was at .8856. That's a lead of only .0013.
