Dramatic until the end, the college football regular season is over, so it's time to predict which teams will fill the 70 available bowl slots.
Florida State and Auburn are headed to the Bowl Championship Series title game, but not without some uncertain moments.
The Tigers got past Missouri in the SEC title game. Then they watched Ohio State stumble in the fourth quarter against Michigan State in the Big Ten title game, which knocked the Buckeyes out of a trip to Pasadena. Ohio State will have to settle for a spot in the Orange Bowl, while the Spartans take a Rose Bowl berth.
There also was shuffling among other BCS games. Oklahoma first got help from Northern Illinois' loss friday in the MAC title game, then stunned Oklahoma State in the final seconds Saturday to earn a place in the Sugar Bowl. The loss by the Cowboys gave Baylor the opportunity to reach the Fiesta Bowl with an outright Big 12 championship.
A reminder: Some conferences may not fulfill their allotment. An asterisk indicates a school that is a replacement pick. Bold indicates a school that has accepted a bid.
