Theoretically, yes. If two SEC teams finish 13-0 and 12-1 (such as Alabama and Florida in 2009) they can both be invited to the championship game. However, Florida was passed in the standings by Texas in 2009.

There are six conferences (ACC, Big East, Big 12, Big 10, PAC 10, and SEC) and one independent school (Notre Dame) that have automaticly qualifying status for a BCS game. Teams in these conferences would be your BCS teams. The other five conferences (MWC, C-USA, WAC, MAC, and SBC) and two independents (Army and Navy) are not automatic qualifiers and can only make it to a BCS bowl game through an "at-large" bid. These would be your non-BCS teams. Although the BCS considers ALL teams to be "BCS teams" with the division being between automatic and non-automatic qualifiers.
In 2008 the teams were Alabama and Florida

There was no such thing as an official "national championship game" until the BCS system began in the 1998 season. Since that time, teams from the Southeastern Conference (SEC) have won four(4) national championship games (Tennessee 1998; LSU 2003; Florida 2006; LSU 2007). The Big 12 has won 2 national championship games. The other four BCS conferences (Big East, Big 10, ACC, and Pac 10) have won 1 each. However, the team that got the one Big East win is now in the ACC.
