  Bowl Championship Series
If a BCS bowl loses a host team to the National Championship Game, then such BCS bowl shall be the first to select a replacement team from the pool of participating teams.
In a situation where two or more bowls select the same team(s) with their choices, the priority of selection would be the following: (1) the bowl making the largest per team cash payment shall be given first preference; (2) the bowl not getting first priority in the previous year, would be given first preference.
At the conclusion of these procedures, the pairings established by the BCS bowls may be adjusted by the BCS, in consultation with the BCS bowls and ABC, in the interest of creating the most exciting and interesting post-season match-ups possible.

 Father Raymond J. de Souza on Bowl Championship Series on National Review Online
So on New Year's Day in the Rose Bowl, USC beat the University of Michigan, in what pundits took to calling the "human championship."

The Sugar Bowl participants may have been determined by computers, but the intense fever which gripped the 79,000 fans in the Superdome and millions more across Louisiana was straight from the heart.
