College Football chaos heats up BCS

What an incredible couple of weekends of college football!

Last week it was Stanford and Boise. This week, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Oklahoma and Clemson! Oh, how the mighty have fallen…

If the BCS projections are correct, it will be an all-SEC top three: LSU (11-0) at No. 1., Alabama (10-1) at No. 2 and Arkansas (10-1) at No. 3. Oklahoma State (10-1) is expected to be No. 4 — not that it matters right now.

What matters is that Arkansas travels to LSU this Friday. And Alabama travels to Auburn for Saturday’s Iron Bowl, college football’s version of a despise/despise relationship.

Not much is at stake — only LSU’s grip on a BCS championship berth. Beat a lethal Razorbacks team and then win the SEC championship (is that all?) and the Mad Hatter will be in New Orleans for the Jan. 9 Allstate BCS National Championship Game.

For Alabama, a win would all but ensure the Crimson Tide a place in the national championship. Better yet for Bama, it could mean a rematch against the Tigers, who seemingly crushed the Tide’s BCS chances with a Nov. 5 victory in Tuscaloosa.

But that was then and this is now. College football did a 180 on Friday and Saturday nights.

Go ‘Bama… Roll Tide.
