I think WV and Louisville winning today pretty much shuts them out of the BCS bowl. We can put the final nail in the coffin tomorrow.

Only BCS chance for Rutgers is to win tomorrow have Cinci win twice and then be ranked highest in the BCS standings. There are 7 different ways things can end. LV wins 3, Cinci 1 and the other 3 are to the highest in BCS rankings.

The way i figure it, with 4 teams in the chase, and 4 games left that affect the rankings, and none of the teams playing each other, there are actually 16 possibilities the games can go (2x2x2x2) and 8 different ways the standing can finish. So i just killed 3-0 minutes looking at it.

There are 7 different possible ties and and the scenarios where Louisville is the only 5-2 team.
Louis alone at 5-2 =Louisville to the BCS (3/16 chances)
2-way tie of RU and Louisville = Louisville to the BCS (3/16)
2-way tie of WVU and Louisville = Louisville to the BCS (3/16)
2-way tie of Cincy and Louisville = Cincy to the BCS (1/16)
3-way tie of RU WVU and Louisville = Louisville to the BCS (3/16)
3-way tie of RU Cincy and Louisville = highest ranked to the BCS - either Cincy or RU to the BCS (1/16)
3-way tie of Cincy WVU and Louisville = highest ranked to the BCS - either WVU or Cincy (1/16)
4-way tie = highest ranked of WVU or Louisville to the BCS = WVU to the BCS (1/16)

Louisville wins 12 of the 16 scenarios
Cincy wins 1 of the 16
WVU wins the 4-way tie (RU and Cincy eliminated at 1-2, and WVU beats out 7-5 Louisville)

1 of the 16 is highest ranked of 9-3 Cincy or 9-3 RU (throw out 7-5 Louisville)

Too bad Zach Collaros got injured. Won't be as easy for Cincy to win.

I'd love to get the W and guarantee that RU is out, but I can't say I have a lot of confidence. Not that RU is that good, but they're a pass-happy team and Schiano is guaranteed to run at least one trick play every game. Our D is marginal vs. the pass and susceptible to misdirection.

I think that is what they meant by 7 different scenarios, throwing out the Ville winning straight up. It's 3 to Ville, 1 to Cinci and 3 to highest in BCS.

works for me, but i doubt the Ville wants to throw out that scenario...
