I think what this year will prove is that an undefeated Boise or TCU or Utah will never get into the title game over an undefeated or 1-loss, or maybe even 2-loss team from the B10, B12, Pac10 or SEC. Considering that Oregon, Oklahoma, MSU, Auburn, LSU, Mizzou and OkST are all still undefeated, with Bama, tOSU, Wisconsin, Iowa, Stanford, Nebraska lurking with one loss, I'd be stunned if the computers or human polls allowed Boise or TCU in.
Whether they deserve to get a shot at the title is honestly irrelevant at this point, because it's pretty clear they never will. Which is too bad. They can't help the conference they play in (in fact Boise changed leagues to get better competition before Utah bailed to the Pac10) and they beat everyone on their schedule. What more can you ask for honestly?
