(First of all, LSU will not win the SEC West, because Alabama will clinch the division when they beat Auburn on November 24th. Now back to my point.)
Two teams from the Southeastern Conference will play in a BCS Bowl. Based on the current BCS Standings, the winner of the Southeastern Conference will end up in the Sugar Bowl. For argument sake, let's say Alabama will win the SEC and head to New Orleans.
The other BCS-bowl bound team from the SEC will likely go to either the Fiesta or the Rose Bowl this season, if Oregon and Kansas State play in the BCS National Championship game. Who that second team from the SEC is a big question?
Florida, who has one loss, has the inside track for that second BCS Bowl berth, but many expect the Gators to lose to Florida State in the regular season finale. Florida has not played well lately and almost lost to U-L Lafayette this past season.
Georgia has one loss, but a loss to Alabama in the SEC title game will not make them desirable to a BCS Bowl, because its last game would be a defeat. The same could be said for South Carolina, if they lose to Clemson in the regular season finale.
If Florida, Georgia and South Carolina all lose in the next couple of weeks that would leave Texas A&M and LSU as two red hot teams to close out the regular season and the most desirable to get the second BCS bowl bid out of the SEC.
But right now the Aggies are the more attractive team for the Fiesta or Rose Bowl. That's because A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is the big sensation in college football. As a redshirt freshman, he will likely be a Heisman Finalist. Plus there's a lot of excitement surrounding the Aggies program, with a first-year coach, an exciting quarterback and an outstanding performance in their inaugural season of the SEC.
So if LSU is left out of the BCS Bowl picture, where will they go in the post-season? The most likely scenarios will have LSU in either the Cotton or Capital One Bowl. The worst-case scenario would be the Chik-Fil-A Bowl.
