TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WHNT) A day after #1 Alabama lost to #4 Auburn, the defeat still stings for Bama fans who were hoping for a third straight trip to the BCS title game.
Those hopes have been dashed, but maybe not. While Alabama's chances of going to Pasadena are slim, there is a path. A path that would lead to Iron Bowl Part Deux.
For the Tide to have a chance, an unlikely scenario would have to unfold next Saturday. Florida State would need to lose to Duke and Ohio State would need to fall to Michigan State. If that happens and Auburn beats Missouri in the SEC title game, the Tigers would then likely move to number one. And you guessed it, Alabama would move into the number two spot.
While Duke is ranked number 20, Florida State is favored by more than two touchdowns in the game. Ohio State is favored by 6 against Michigan State.
