    Oregon still plays Oregon St. Oregon SHOULD easily win this but you never know with rivalry games.

    Auburn still play South Carolina at a neutral field. I think Auburn is just as good as everyone else, but I'm not about to mark down a W just yet.

    South Carolina went into Auburn earlier this year and almost won. Auburn scored two 4th quarter TDs to win by a score. South Carolina had two different drives inside the Auburn 25 with under 5 minutes remaining. While I think Auburn is going to win, I don't think this is going to be the cake walk many people believe will be.

    Just throwing this out there: What happens IF Auburn loses? South Carolina as SEC Champs would automaticially go to the Sugar Bowl. Auburn would now be a 1-loss team. Would TCU bump in front of them? Or would the voters/computers actually have Auburn as #2 and still going to the Nat'l Championship?

    If TCU jumps up, would Auburn take their spot in the Rose Bowl and Wisconsin?

    I say no. There is zero chance TCU jumps auburn even if Auburn does lose simply b/c voters won't be comfortable keeping a 1-loss team from the best conference out of the NC. That's not even considering the bad blood from the past NC snub Auburn got a few years back.

    I would tend to agree with you. Especially considering neither Oregon or TCU play in a conference championship game, that Auburn went undefeated in "regular season" play... and that they already beat SC earlier in the year.

    Because if Auburn loses then you could have TCU playing South Carolina in the most meaningless NC game ever.
