The BCS system has really gone to the dogs! Or perhaps we should say; "has NOT gone to the dogs", especially one Bulldog and one Huskie.

With the Oregon Ducks suffering their first loss of the season, there remains only six unbeaten teams in the BCS Top-25.

Alabama, Florida State, Ohio State and Baylor all reside within the top five. And why wouldn't they for these teams are perfect ... so far. There is not a single loss between the four of them to tarnish their chances of possibly finishing with a #1 or #2 ranking.

But alas, there are two teams out there that also have a zero in their loss column but are ranked much lower. Fresno State at #14 and #15 Northern Illinois are both undefeated. Yet, they reside outside the top ten while six teams who have lost once and three teams who have lost twice are ranked above them.

These are the "Invisible Unbeaten". They are victimized only by their perceivably weak conferences or schedule.

Hopefully, this phenomenon will diminish as next year brings a four-team playoff. Such a system could provide hope for some smaller schools. But, if this season ended today, both the Huskies and Bulldogs would remain invisible.
