We could be 6 tomorrow. Maybe 5 if our computer can push us over Oregon.
Auburn isn't beating Alabama, so in order to play in the national championship game, we'd need:
Florida State over Florida Alabama over Georgia USC over Notre Dame BIG
We need a big ND loss so they drop far, similar to what will happen to Kansad State after what happened tonight.
Those three have to happen. Some that might not be necessary, but we still need:
Oregon State over Oregon ACC Champ over Florida State
Basically, we really need Notre Dame to lose big. And shite man, there is going to be so much pressure on them next week. And as bad as USC has looked, this will be by far the best group athletes at the skill positions that ND has faced all season. And they're on the road.
Notre Dame will hear the #1 talk all week long. They'll hear how they're one game away. They're going to feel the pressure. It's one of the biggest game maybe in Notre Dame history. A perfect storm is brewing.
Only qualification: They have to lose big. There has to be no doubt in order for the pollsters to give a two-loss team the nod.

quote: Wait... If Bama finishes 11-1 and LSU finishes 10-2... WE go to the title game over Bama???? Thats what it looks like you are saying.
If we move to 5 this week then next week USC beats ND and FSU beats Florida. Both fall below us and we jump to 3 behind Bama and Georgia. Bama beats Georgia securing LSU at number 2 and sealing their own demise. Pretty ironic right?
