Which BCS conference is the toughest to predict an order of finish for 2010?
The Pac-10. Oregon still looks like the best team, but without quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, who is suspended for the season, the Ducks’ hold on the top spot seems tenuous. The effect of his absence remains uncertain, but it sure opens the way for USC and the Rodgers brothers at Oregon State to emerge as conference favorites. The middle of the league is crazy, too—Stanford, Arizona, UCLA and Washington look good for fourth through seventh, but they could fall in any order. The Wildcats and Huskies also possess the parts, and the potential superstar quarterback, to push for a championship.
