    #1 Ohio State Buckeyes
    Remaining Games: vs Michigan State, at Michigan, vs Nebraska*

    If Ohio State wins out they will have a rematch with Nebraska in conference championship game. They have one of the tougher schedules in top 5 but proved in week 12 they can beat Nebraska.

    #2 Oklahoma Sooners
    Remaining Games: at Nebraska, at Iowa State, vs Oklahoma State

    Oklahoma will probably drop week 13 game against Nebraska so they shouldn't be serious contenders for title game.

    #3 Utah Utes
    Remaining Games: at Oregon State, vs Cal, vs Oregon State*

    Utah could face Oregon State twice based on conference standings. If that is the case they have the easiest schedule of teams left in the top 5, but Oregon State has surprised experts with a 9-1 record to date.

    #4 Nebraska Cornhuskers

    Remaining Games: vs Oklahoma, vs Wisconsin, vs Ohio State*

    If Ohio State and Nebraska win out regular season games, the Big 10 conference championship will determine 1 of 2 participants for the BCS Championship game. Nebraska won both games with Ohio State last year, but lost last week to OSU.

    #5 LSU Tigers

    Remaining Games: vs Ole Miss, at Arkansas, vs. Georgia*

    Tough to predict if 2-loss LSU jumps 1-loss Utah if both teams win their remaining games. The Tigers need to worry about UGA before looking ahead to a possible title shot.

    #6 Clemson Tigers

    Remaining Games: vs Maryland, at South Carolina, vs Virginia Tech*

    The other Tigers need help from Georgia and possibly Oregon State to have a shot at the title game. They also need to beat the Hokies, who are out for revenge. It will be tough for them to sneak in the title game, but ACC Championship would be a huge achievement for this squad.

    Thanks to BDSDIGITAL choking against Arkansas, Papa Perry has a shot of getting in title game. They still need Utah to lose a game.

    Yeah. They scored 28 pts in the 4th qtr. Because that's sim and realistic. That game I think was the final straw.

    You have walked into one of the strangest rivalries in the SEC. Arkansas has a history of beating really good LSU teams.

    Does that mean no matchup for us in the SEC CC?

    No. I definitely want to play you. I'm going to decide this weekend what to do with all of these leagues.

    Usually Perry's cheesy play is the reason people quit

    I guess it worked out for you. All it took was:
    - Nebraska beating OSU in Big 10 Championship
    - Nebraska beat Oklahoma in week 14
    - Washington beat Utah in Pac 12 Championship
    - LSU lost to Arkansas in week 14
    - Clemson losing in ACC Championship
    - Florida lost to Florida State on a sim in week 14
    - Georgia lost to LSU in SEC Championship
    - Auburn losing to Florida in week 13

    Yeah I was very suprised, but I guess I should mentioned that since my sim loss I have been playing with my game shark.
