A BCS team is a an FBS team that is one of the "Power Confrences: Big 10, Big 12, SEC, Big East, Pac 10, ACC, Notre Dame ( the only Independent in BCS) and soon the Mountain West. These confrences were selected to the BCS because they filled the Big Bowls prior to the BCS. The BCS is just like the American Economy, the allocation of funds is just not equal, but with the mass media, ESPN U, and talk radio smaller school are gettin big time coverage, and with good players wanting to play as soon as they get to campus such confrences like the Mountain West gain popularity, but it is not the upper class schools of the smaller confrence, but the bottom feeders that is excluding schools such as Boise State. Wyoming is a prime example of keeping the Mountain West out. But the BCS is a joke; keep the bowl games and have a playoff!!!!!

The phrase "BCS football team" varies in its usage. The phrase differs according to whether you are a have or a have-not.

Have-Nots: Participants in recent congressional hearings used the phrase to mean a team in one of the 6 BCS conferences (or Notre Dame, which gets preferential treatment by the BCS). A "BCS Conference" would be a conference with a tie-in to one of the BCS bowls.

Haves: The teams in the BCS conferences use the phrase to mean a team playing in a BCS bowl. With his team ranked eighth in the BCS, Phil Fulmer of Tennessee said, "I do believe we are capable of being a BCS football team."

The BCS is a rankings made by computers. For more details go to espn.com

USC has 11 National Championships in men's football but only one BCS Championship in 2004.But this one win will be taken away shortly due to NCAA violations regarding Reggie Bush. I separated this question back out from "How many football BCS championships has USC won" because they are two different questions. When the BCS takes away USC's single BCS championship, it will not change the fact that they won it. They will still have won a BCS championship, but they will not have a BCS championship.

BCS means Bowl Championship series. The BCS bowls are more prodigeous than regular bowls, And the grand daddy of all the bowls is the BCS championship.

No, they ended at #2 in the final BCS standings and were not national champions since they did not play in the BCS Championship game. They did win the Mountain West championship trophy, but no ring

BCS stands for Bowl Championship Series. The BCS is the system that selects the Division 1-A college football teams to play in the BCS bowl games at the conclusion of each football season. There are 5 BCS Bowl Games:1. Rose Bowl: Pac 10 champ vs. Big Ten champ2. Sugar Bowl: SEC champ vs. BCS selection3. Fiesta Bowl: Big 12 champ vs. BCS selection4. Orange Bowl: ACC champ vs. BCS selection5. BCS National Championship Game: BCS #1 vs. BCS #2 If the champion of one of the 5 major conferences with BCS ties (bold above) is ranked #1 or #2 in the BCS and goes to the BCS NC game, then the bowl that has the tie to that conference may select another team, based on BCS ranking. For example, if USC wins the Pac 10 and is ranked #1 at the end of the regular season, then the Rose Bowl can select another team to play against the Big Ten champion. Otherwise, the specific Bowl must take the champion of the respective conference. In addition, Notre Dame gets an automatic berth if it finishes in the top 8 in the BCS ranking; the Big East champion gets an automatic berth to one of the games; and a non-BCS-conference team ranked in the top 12 (or in the top 16 and ranked higher than at least one BCS conference champion) gets an automatic berth, but only one non-BCS conference team can get a berth each year.

There are many different ways to determine the "best" bowl game. From a monetary standpoint, the Capital One Bowl pays out $4.25 million per team. This bowl also gets the first non-BCS selection from the Big Ten and SEC-a traditional conference rivalry, making the Capital One Bowl among the best non-BCS bowls. The Cotton Bowl classic between the first non-BCS Big 12 team and the second non-BCS SEC team is also a top bowl game paying $3.625 million for the 2013 bowl.

Due to their unique status as a football independent, they receive an automatic BCS bid if they finish in the top 10% of all teams in the BCS standings.
