College Football's Undefeated: 2 for the Championship, 1 on Standby

The Boise State loss was a shocker, but it simplifies the championship picture a great deal.
Auburn [SEC] (1st BCS, 12-0 overall, 8-0 conference) Oregon [Pac 10] (2nd BCS, 11-0 overall, 8-0 conference)  TCU [MWC] (3rd BCS, 12-0 overall, 8-0 conference) Game of the Week: Boise State vs. Nevada. This was not supposed to happen.
Most Likely to Stay Undefeated: TCU. They have nobody left whose any good.
Least Likely to Stay Undefeated: Oregon. A grudge match against their in state rival? It's going to be one of their hardest test of the year.

College Football's Undefeated: Likelihood of 4 Undefeated Teams is Too High

No real changes from before. Utah lost as expected.

Oregon [Pac 10] (1st BCS, 10-0 overall, 7-0 conference)  Auburn [SEC] (2nd BCS, 11-0 overall, 7-0 conference)   TCU [MWC] (3rd BCS, 11-0 overall, 7-0 conference)
Boise State [WAC] (4th BCS, 9-0 overall, 5-0 conference)Game of the Week: Oregon vs. Cal. The game was much closer than expected.
Most Likely to Stay Undefeated: TCU. They have a weaker opponent than Boise State this week.
Least Likely to Stay Undefeated: Auburn. Good luck against Alabama.

College Football's Undefeated: And then there were 5.

As of right now, the season is going to end with at most 4 undefeated teams and realistically probably 3 undefeated teams (assuming that Auburn has a serious chance of losing in the SEC Championship). So basically, no matter what happens, the BCS will once again make for yet another unfair year.

Oregon [Pac 10] (1st BCS, 8-0 overall, 5-0 conference)  Auburn [SEC] (2nd BCS, 9-0 overall, 6-0 conference)   TCU [MWC] (3rd BCS, 9-0 overall, 5-0 conference)
Boise State [WAC] (4th BCS, 7-0 overall, 3-0 conference) Utah [MWC] (5th BCS, 8-0 overall, 5-0 conference)All undefeated teams currently occupy the top 5 BCS slots.

Game of the Week: Michigan State vs. Iowa. It was quite a manhandling.
Most Likely to Stay Undefeated: Boise State. Same as last week.
Least Likely to Stay Undefeated: Utah. They are probably not going to win against TCU.
