The only path I can believe in for NY6 looks like this:
Georgia Wins out and crushes Bama. (1)
Ohio State wins out (2)
Cinci wins out (3)
BATTLE FOR #4
Notre Dame wins out
Oklahoma State wins out (beats OU and then Baylor)
Two Loss Alabama.
Ole Miss loses to Miss State
I believe this would leave BYU ranked somewhere between #9 - #12 and in consideration. I also believe that the bowls will not select a three loss team unless they are a true blue blood. Which means, the only scenario that makes sense for BYU is if Notre Dame finishes undefeated and is selected over a two loss Alabama. They deliver the viewers of Alabama, and everyone in the college football world is leery of the SEC right now.
Sugar = Bama vs. Oklahoma State
Rose = Michigan vs. Oregon/Utah
Peach = ACC Champ (Pitt?) vs. at large.
Fiesta = at large vs. at large.
10 win at large teams:
10-2 Michigan State
3 loss Texas AM.
3 loss Wisconsin/Iowa
Fiesta vs Oklahoma would have some great story lines...
