Wisconsin's path to BCS Bowl

The Badgers path to a BCS Bowl game isn't that difficult really. Win the last two games, sure, that's obvious.

But will it take a slew of crazy upsets? No, not in my estimation. If you chart the Top 18 in this week's BCS standings, it appears that if all the higher ranked teams (or home teams in closely ranked games) win over the next two regular season weeks and the Championship weekend, the Badgers would sneak into the Top 10. That would assure them the final BCS spot.

Take a look at this. It shows the current BCS standings, with that team's opponent. It lists the winner, which I've used the higher ranked team (or home team in the case of closely ranked games like Texas A&M at LSU this week), and then it lists any change in the BCS, and the new standings. I've shown the evolution of the standings for each week and the championship week.
