The continuous weekly saga of BCS $ football this past weekend provided
us with usual bevy of upsets we come accustomed to.
Oklahoma State led the parade falling from the ranks of the
unbeaten losing to Iowa St. 37-31. Oregon not to be outdone dropped their
prime time show case to USC 38-35. Baylor defeated Oklahoma 45-38 to complete
the trifecta for this past weekend. My personal favorite the Houston Cougars

The BCS $ title game has never featured a rematch which could change this
year if the cards fall in the right places. The SEC the past decade has
touted its conference as number one in the nation, with debate from the
other conferences touting their membership schools as being just as competitive.
This year the SEC West features LSU, Alabama, and Arkansas. They are currently
ranked numbers one, two,and three in the current polls. In the east Georgia
(9-2) and South Carolina (9-2) led by the ball coach are no slouches either.
This weekend the turmoil continues in the SEC and nationally
as LSU (11-0) hosts Arkansas (10-1) Friday at 2:30 CBS network with the
call. On Saturday its Alabama (10-1) at Auburn (7-4) CBS will feature
the telecast Saturday at 3:30.
