No way. Going through the SEC west and beating LSU would give them enough of a boost to get ranked #2 should other teams lose a game.
Louisville plays no one on their schedule so if they drop one they are out. They might even be on the outside looking in if they go undefeated, depending on how things play out.
Ohio St played Cal and won but Cal is not good this year, having lost to Northwestern and they may not be bowl eligible.
Oregon may be the only other one loss team to make it in, but I still think the fact that A&M will have only lost to the #1 team by a touchdown will put them in the game.
