Re: Great Day for College Football
I've been saying for weeks that Oregon and West Virginia are the darkhorses in this national championship chase as a lot of the focus has been on OSU, LSU, Okla, and in recent weeks, BC and South Florida. It's hard to call them darkhorses now that WV's back near the top five and Oregon's already made it there, but as teams continue to get picked off, it's hard to ignore these two. Obviously, OSU-Michigan will likely determine whether the Buckeyes play for the title, and I still think LSU is one of the very best teams in the country, but the SEC is so brutal. They still have one moderately tough regular season game left (Arkansas) but an SEC Championship that should be a real battle with any of five teams (Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Kentucky). There's a real chance for either of these two to get into the championship game.
