Best BCS team of the BCS era?

With the BCS era coming to an end, I couldn’t help but start to think what the best BCS era team is. The BCS started in 1998 with Tennessee winning the first championship. I think most of us are old enough to remember the majority if not all of the champions (or have an argument who the champion in a given year should have been). So, I am curious who everyone thinks the best team of the BCS era would be? Who is that one team that would beat every other champion or team that deserved to be a champion from 1998 to present?

For me, is tempting to put Utah (either 2004 or 2008) as the best team since I went to the school for 6 years and for the record I am of the opinion the 2004 team was better.

However, I think the best team of the era has to be the 2001 Miami Hurricanes. Not only did they go undefeated, they demolished other teams with most games not even being close. Additionally, they had players like Clinton Portis, Willis McGahee, Frank Gore, Jeremy Shockey, Ed Reed, and Andre Johnson. It is truly the first and only team that I remember thinking could possibly beat an NFL team (I do not think that anymore, but I was that impressed with them at the time).

I am curious who everyone else would say is the best BCS era team?
