WTG SEC

I am sure you guys have seen this but I just gotta post... :)
LSU-Alabama Round 2 is just a few victories away


ESPN BCS analyst Brad Edwards breaks down all of the BCS scenarios that could occur between Alabama, LSU and Arkansas.

A weekend filled with upsets left the Southeastern Conference rivals in the top two spots in the BCS standings released Sunday.

And Arkansas is third, further increasing the possibility of an all-SEC BCS championship game Jan. 9 in New Orleans that would be a rematch of a regular-season game.

It's the first time in the 14-year history of the BCS that the same conference has had the top three teams in the standings.

If the Tigers can beat Arkansas on Saturday, then Georgia in the SEC title game Dec. 3, and the Crimson Tide beats Auburn on Saturday, it's almost a lock that LSU-Alabama will play again, this time at the Superdome.

LSU beat Alabama 9-6 in overtime Nov. 6 in Tuscaloosa.

Oklahoma State, which suffered the most surprising loss of the weekend, fell to fourth place. The Cowboys were unbeaten and second in the BCS standings, but were upset 37-31 in double overtime at Iowa State on Friday night.

"You just never know what to expect any more with what happens every Saturday," Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said.

Still, Oklahoma State is not out of it. The Cowboys just need some help from Auburn and LSU or from voters in the Harris and coaches' polls who don't have an appetite for a rematch in the BCS championship game.

Oklahoma slipped fifth to ninth in the standings. Oregon, which lost 38-35 to Southern California, fell from fourth to 10th in the standings.

That left the SEC in control.

If LSU gets past Arkansas, it would seem a case could be made that the Tigers could lose to Georgia in the SEC title game and still play for the national championship.

LSU would be a one-loss team like all the rest and have maybe the best resume of the bunch with victories against Oregon and West Virginia out of conference.

Virginia Tech is fifth in the BCS standings with a game against Virginia on Saturday that will determine which team plays Clemson for the Atlantic Coast Conference title.

Stanford is sixth with a game against Notre Dame left. The Cardinal could reach the Pac-12 title game if Oregon were to lose to Oregon State on Saturday.

The Hokies and Cardinal have national title hopes but would need lots of help in the form of losses by the teams ahead of them to get there.

Boise State is seventh, but the Broncos will be shut out of the BCS this season because they can't win their conference after losing to Mountain West Conference rival TCU.

Undefeated Houston is eighth and can lock up the BCS buster bid by winning Conference USA. The Cougars play Tulsa this week and would host the C-USA title game, most likely against Southern Mississippi, if they beat the Golden Hurricane.

Houston does deserve some sort of BCS game especially if they do run the table. Granted they play in the weak but diversified Conference USA but the numbers they put up all season in addition to the margin of victory, they'd probably do just fine against VT or perhaps even an Okie or Boise St.

LMAO.....actually think anything other than a Bama/LSU rematch is pretty slim....can't believe Oklahoma lost again...really thought they would have had a decent shot with one loss and a win over Ok State....it will be quite interesting to see where the books put the total for the rematch....guessing it will still be 37 - ish??? Maybe 34- ish..they will be scared to make it too low....

I highly doubt we'd see 9-6 this time around but I would have to say 38 would be about just right. If the game is close down the stretch and requires another OT, I think someone's going to get into the endzone if it were say 17 all in regulation and with the National title on the line I would expect a much cleaner and better played ballgame.

JTG = I am not sure what I am talking about (so what else is new) but on one of the games I was watching the announcer said Houston was not bowl eligible. Have they done something to get sanctioned by NCAA or something?

    I have no idea what you are talking about either barb. A lot of analysts have Houston heading to the Fiesta Bowl (myself included). I can't find anywhere it says that they are ineligible for a bowl.

Yeah I have been looking online and I can't see anything either. Don and I both looked at each other and said "what" at the exact same time when he said it. We were totally dumbfounded at that remark. OH well perhaps he just mis-spoke. Because I say Houston should be right up there as they are just as undefeated at LSU is... I know lighter schedule and all that stuff but still they should be in a larger bowl game if they run the table as you say!
