An Unlikely, Yet Possible, Hypothetical Scenario

So far this season, there are clear favorites in the SEC and Big Ten, along with the Oregon/Stanford Winner in the Pac 10. Considering Texas' embarrassing performance against UCLA, and Oklahoma's average performances against Air Force and Cincy, Nebraska could be a favorite in the Big 12.

This brings me to a fun (although unlikely) scenario. In the Big Ten, it is very possible for Ohio State to get through the Big Ten undefeated (Iowa and Wisconsin their biggest challenges), while Alabama could very well get through the SEC undefeated (I refuse to buy into Florida because they blew out KENTUCKY). In the Pac 10, there don't appear to be many other teams that can compete with Oregon and Stanford right now as USC has been mediocre so far and Washington has performed below expectations. The winner of Oregon/Stanford could very well go undefeated. The Big 12 could see Oklahoma or Nebraska being undefeated, considering after them and Texas, there is little depth.

That brings me to this apocalyptic scenario: What if 3 or 4 teams out of BCS conferences goes undefeated? That makes the Boise State Scenarios look like minor details! Who would go to the title game? The SEC, whether it's fair or not, would definitely get their champion (likely Bama) in. But then, who gets in if you have one spot for 3 very legit undefeated teams? Or do the other teams impress enough where they actually get in over Alabama?

The debate would be unbelievable, and all four teams would have plenty of legit arguments for why they should get in over other teams. So I ask, who do you think WOULD get in with this scenario? You could also say who you think SHOULD, as those are two VERY different things.
