If you need to resort to the "FIELD" to find your team on this list, your team has zero - not 40/1 - odds at winning the National Championship. While superfans of each of the teams towards the bottom of the table can probably come up with some 8 or 9-way idiotic scenario of a way they can still win, I'll be happy to save you time.
One of these five teams will win - Florida, Alabama, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, or USC. USC gets one chance to earn their right to the BCS Championship game - the Big XII Championship - but as of right now, they're out. The other four teams are all locked in the championship provided they win out. If you feel like making a little money but want to play it safe, do this:
Bet $200 on Florida AND a $100 on Oklahoma.
- If Florida wins, you win $300.
- If Oklahoma wins, you win $200.
