Each week I've shown what the new big-six bowl lineup (including playoff matchups) would hypothetically look like if the new postseason format were already in place. For this exercise, I'll use the final BCS standings in place of the forthcoming selection committee's rankings.
Sugar: No. 1 Florida State (ACC champ) vs. No. 4 Michigan State (Big Ten champ)
Rose: No. 2 Auburn (SEC champ) vs. No. 3 Alabama (BCS at-large)
Fiesta: No. 5 Stanford (displaced Pac-12 champ) vs. No. 7 Ohio State (at-large)
Cotton: No. 6 Baylor (displaced Big 12 champ) vs. No. 15 UCF (Group of Five)
Chick-fil-A: No. 9 South Carolina (at-large) vs. No. 10 Oregon (at-large)
Orange: No. 12 Clemson (ACC replacement) vs. No. 8 Missouri (SEC/Big Ten/Notre Dame)
Cool. Except Alabama would win again.
