CFB 24 8 Six teams that can play role of BCS buster in 2011 30067159 New season of thrills New+season+of+thrills CFB

Since the Bowl Championship Series games were first played in 1999, no team outside the BCS-conferences has been invited to the BCS Championship Game. Some BCS busters have come close — Texas Christian went 12-0 last season, but instead of playing for the crystal ball, it played for roses. It's a nice consolation, but an unfulfilled destination still eludes TCU and its brethren. This year, six teams have a shot to finally get over that hump and shock the BCS world. — LISA HORNE

CFB 24 8 Six teams that can play role of BCS buster in 2011 30067153 BYU BYU CFB

In its first year as an independent, BYU is getting a little overlooked. The Cougars return almost everyone on their offense, including school record-setting quarterback Jake Heaps. The defense should be good to go, but keep your eye on their secondary, which is breaking in new cornerbacks and a safety. The Cougars' schedule is front-loaded with four of their first seven games against BCS teams, as well as a tilt at TCU in late October. A pass-happy Hawai'i team led by quarterback Bryant Moniz, the nation's most prolific passer last year, awaits in December.

The Aztecs are a big sleeper this year. They've got two huge weapons — quarterback Ryan Lindley and running back Ronnie Hillman (both pictured) — both of whom were highly productive at their positions in 2010 (ranked No. 7 and No. 10, respectively). What we don't know is how much of a loss will be felt by the departure of head coach Brady Hoke to Michigan. In an ironic twist, new coach Rocky Long's squad's first big test, after Army and Washington State, is on Sept. 24 in Ann Arbor. This game should tell us everything we need to know — about both teams.

CFB 24 8 Six teams that can play role of BCS buster in 2011 30067152 TCU TCU CFB

The biggest question mark facing the Horned Frogs is the inexperience on both sides of the ball. The team lost several starters, but Gary Patterson (pictured left) continues to surprise even the most steadfast curmudgeons. TCU's soft schedule should help ease their growing pains, but the polls may also punish them for not having a championship schedule. Rose Bowl hero Tank Carder (right) can't do it all, but his — as well as quarterback Casey Pachall and running back Ed Wesley — leadership will be crucial to the team's mental make-up.

CFB 24 8 Six teams that can play role of BCS buster in 2011 30067156 Nevada Nevada CFB

The Wolfpack have a few things working against them, the main one being they no longer have the services of quarterback Colin Kaepernick. They do have a solid running back in Mike Ball (pictured) — he replaces Vai Taua, the seventh-leading rusher in the country last season. The biggest hurdle for Nevada may be a scheduling nightmare; its first four games are at Oregon, at San Jose State, at Texas Tech and at Boise State. If the pistol is firing and the Wolfpack sweep those road tilts, they're in the BCS conversation. But that's a big "if."

CFB 24 8 Six teams that can play role of BCS buster in 2011 30067155 Tulsa Tulsa CFB

The first coaches preseason poll ranked Oklahoma No. 1 and Oklahoma State No. 8. Tulsa was not included, but Golden Hurricane head coach Bill Blankenship fired off the first shot, saying this about the quarterbacks playing in the state of Oklahoma: “We believe the best one is not in the Big 12. We think he is probably in Conference USA.” We'll find out shortly if Blakenship's right about G.J. Kinne — Tulsa plays both Big 12 members Oklahoma and Oklahoma State in September. Beat them both, as well as Boise State, Southern Methodist and Houston, and Tulsa's in the BCS mix. No pressure ... no pressure at all.

Quarterback Kellen Moore returns. How important is this? During a recent radio interview with WCNN in Atlanta, Georgia head coach Mark Richt alluded to the Bulldogs putting Boise State on their schedule because they assumed Moore would have graduated by this season. If the Broncos spank Georgia, they'll get everyone's attention — a close game won't help. After their Georgia opener, they'll still have some speed bumps ahead of them — Tulsa, Fresno State, Air Force, TCU and San Diego State — but after coming so close last year, Boise State may have a bigger chip on its shoulders this year, which is scary.
