Posted by AtlantaLSUfan on 10/14 at 9:18 pm to White Tiger Feels like there is a couple more surprise loses coming. I bet neither ACC team makes it. Also think the voters will penalize OSU when they're playing teams like Illinois/Indiana while we're playing teams like Bama/ATM.
For one loss LSU to make the national championship the only other thing (aside from winning out) that needs to happen is either the PAC-12 or ACC champion needs to have one loss. That's it
LSU will get a big bump in the human polls after beating Alabama, and will get smaller bumps from beating A&M and the SEC-c.
I'm a scenario with Oregon 1, OSU 2 and LSU 3 in the human polls the difference in points will be very close, and LSUs computer ratings will push them past it.
And to be honest, I'm not totally sure there won't be some media saying "LSU is the better team, played tougher schedule, won best conference" that nullifies or overcomes anti-SEC and brand name loyalty.
