Really can't argue with you. Look at it like this: At the beginning of the season, the ACC was supposed to be the best conference in college football. Va Tech, FSU, Miami, NC St. all were supposed to be very good. Miami was either #1 or close to #1 in a few polls. If the ACC wasn't the #1 conference then it was the SEC. Georgia was supposed to be the class of that conference this year. LSU was the defending national champs and while they weren't the team they were last year, they were still a pretty tough team. Auburn only beat them by 1 on a missed extra point. There was Tennessee who was a fine football team as well. Yet Auburn managed to go through that conference undefeated and win the SEC championship game. So they went undefeated in the SEC and beat the ACC champ. Those are pretty strong credentials if you ask me. Not taking anything away from USC or OU because both had tough games in conference and OU just dominated Texas. Hindsight is always 20/20 but looking at this game tonight, perhaps OU should have gone to the Sugar Bowl and Auburn to the Orange Bowl.
