By midnight Saturday, the BCS could have a nervous breakdown or nod off from boredom. We'll remember Nov. 3 as the night when either this season quit following directions or it followed the chalk.
Two games. Four teams. One season still deciding who it belongs to.
Anyway, how's this for a way to spend a Saturday evening: No. 1 Alabama at No. 5 LSU … No. 4 Oregon at No. 17 USC. Death Valley … the Coliseum.
As always, I vote for the prison break, for BCS chaos. But it will take some doing. It will take two underdogs (LSU is an 8-point pooch; USC is getting 8½) playing like the preseason No. 1s they once were. Let's face it; it will take a couple of medium-sized football miracles.
