Did Boise State's win over Georgia slam the door on the ACC's chances of landing 2 BCS teams?

As you may know, the ACC has never placed two teams in the BCS in a single season. I discussed the ACC's chances of doing so here over the offseason, concluding that this was the ACC's best shot in quite a while due to VT's schedule and FSU's commitment to winning and not running a museum of coaching history. But I also concluded that because of the selection order of the BCS bowls (the Orange bowl has the last pick), it was unlikely to happen.

But one spot now appears spoken for, as Boise State exposed Mark Richt for the shell of the coach he once was. Because Boise plays one of the biggest joke schedules in the country, the remaining games consisting of @ Toledo, vs Tulsa, vs Nevada, @ Fresno State, @ Colorado State, vs Air Force, @ UNLV, vs TCU, @ San Diego State, vs Wyoming and vs New Mexico, the Broncos have a great chance of going undefeated as they will be 14-point (or larger) favorites in all of those contests. If voters looked past the top two games on a schedule, things might be different. But lazy poll voters do not care that some teams play the vast majority of their schedule against scrubs, and here we are.

Boise is on track to finish high enough to be guaranteed a spot and is likely to be snatched up by the Fiesta Bowl. If the order were different, you could see the second ACC team going to the Orange. But Boise's inclusion and the selection order are going to make this very tough indeed.
