The latest BCS rankings simulation is out from Samuel Chi of SB Nation, and the national championship would be interesting from one side of the country to another if the season were over today. Alabama versus Oregon would be the title game for all of the college football glory in 2012 if Chi were right on, but other teams hang close, including a surprising South Carolina team that Steve Spurrier has climbing the rankings.
