Oregon has the capability of knocking off an SEC power in the national title game, probably one of the few teams outside the SEC that has a very legit shot.
Chip Kelly's Oregon team was 1-2 against the SEC.
A very mediocre (by SEC standards) Auburn defense held them to under 20 points.
A LSU team that scored 9 points in two games against Alabama hung 40 on them and held them 20 points under their season scoring average.
They did manage to beat a 6-7 Tennessee team.
They might not look like Notre Dame, but they'd fare no better in the end.
