Northern Illinois' loss to Bowling Green on Friday in the MAC title game means there won't be a non-AQ team in the BCS this season.

Instead, the defeat opens up another at-large spot for a major-conference team. That team will probably come from the Big 12 or Pac-12 and play in the Sugar Bowl, the most likely candidates being Baylor or Oregon.

Oklahoma could also have a chance to get that spot with a victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday.
