There are three components to the BCS formula, and Clemson fans won't like one of them.
After the Harris and Coaches Poll had Clemson No. 4, the computer average knocked the Tigers to just No. 6 overall (.773). That six-computer average has Clemson No. 10.
CBS projected the Tigers at No. 4 earlier in the day.
No. 5 Missouri (.808) closes the season hosting Texas A&M and can clinch a berth in the SEC Championship Game.
No. 4 Auburn (.824) concludes their year hosting No. 1 Alabama and can clinch their berth in the SEC Championship game.
No. 3 Ohio State (.920) plays at Michigan next week and will be in the Big Ten title game to close the year.
In the computer ranks, Clemson is ranked as high as fourth and as low as 14th, while Missouri and Auburn are in the top-10 of each of the six components.
