    The only bowl in which both teams were designated conference champions was the Rose Bowl. The Orange Bowl tied into the Big 8/Big 12 champion until 1998 when the BCS came into the existence. More...

    What's silly is not being able to recognize the difference between Ohio State's non- conference schedule and Baylor's. No need for the straw men. By the way, in the two seasons that Oregon played for...

    I'm surprised that you would so readily forgive the Ducks for the Arizona State debacle. Would you really prefer that Oregon fill their non-conference schedule with cupcakes the way Baylor does?...

    Georgia only dropped one spot to #5 and Wisconsin remained at #8. Also, Oregon jumped 7 spots to #6. If only they hadn't stepped on that banana peel in Arizona a couple of weeks ago . . . . .

    We can only speculate on that since Nick Saban's Alabama team has been unique among FBS football teams over the last 12 years in that they don't lose to unranked teams. No other team can say that.
