(Newser) – In a season with eight different No. 2 ranked teams, Missouri and West Virginia are each a win away from the BCS title game. New No. 1 Missouri has the tougher road of the two, playing Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship Saturday while the Mountaineers host Pitt in the annual "Backyard Brawl." Ohio State looms if either falls.

If both happen to lose, then it's anyone's guess who would play the Buckeyes, reports Fox Sports. A number of conference champs with two losses would be in the mix including Southern Cal, LSU, Virginia Tech and Oklahoma. Georgia, currently No. 4 in the BCS, would have something to say as well. Hawaii, despite being unbeaten, has no title shot.
