    So after the 1st week of play, I have decided on my two teams for the BCS Championship.

    I would like to hear you guys' predictions as well.

    Here goes:

    West Virginia
    vs.
    Ohio State

    Ohio State wins 20-17.

    See, this is going to look like an easier pick after week one than before, but I swear I made my championship game picks two months ago.

    And that is Florida State vs. West Virginia.

    Everyone knows why West Virginia has a great shot.

    Florida State I picked for number of reasons as a dark horse of sorts, and I had full confidence that they would beat Miami last weekend, and they did.

    The offense will get better from here, too. Drew Weatherford led all freshmen QBs in passing yards last year, and he will get better this year. The real off-season question was the defense, which looked like it would drop off because so much of the defense left in the NFL draft. I thought the defense would be underestimated, they were, and they held Miami to 10 points and 2 yards rushing.

    Ohio State can beat Texas this weekend, and still not make the championship game. I just think that all the contenders in the Big 10 and the SEC have too tough of a schedule to run the table. I think Iowa is great, I think Michigan is great, I think Ohio State is great, I think Tennessee is great, I think Auburn is great, I think Florida is... overrated but still very good. They will beat up on each other and keep any one school from going unblemished through the season.

    Same thing with Notre Dame. Last year, they had an easy schedule except for USC. This year, they have a tougher schedule, and I don't think they're elite enough to survive it.

    My Longhorns have a shot if they can get past OSU, Oklahoma, and Nebraska, but I'm trying to keep from getting my hopes too high so my heart isn't broken. If I'm wrong and they win the national title, I won't care about my predictions.

    I like WV vs OSU. WV has a weak schedule, along with White and Slaton. I would love to see Oklahoma in it, but it probably wont happen. ND has to much hype, and will get upset sometime. Texas, just cant vote for them as an Oklahoma fan. That covers most of the big schools. Oh yea, and USC just lost to many guys.

    West Virginia is SCARY good. Not to mention their ridiculously easy schedule. If any top 25 team had their schedule they'd go undefeated.

    But schedule aside, i think WVU has the talent to match up with anyone. They are fun to watch.

    At this point, I think I will actually be surprised if WVU doesn't run the table (up to bowl season anyway). The only tough game they had was Louisville, and Louisville lost Michael Bush.

    Plus, they crushed a very good Georgia team, very badly. They should be feared.

    Notre Dame vs. Ohio State. The rematch from last year. But this year ND pulls it out 35-24

    Auburn vs Ohio State

    I don't know why, but I can't see myself choosing West Virginia. West Virginia just doesn't scream football powerhouse to me. I guess I see West Virginia (the state) in the same light as I see Arkansas...

    Felt the same way until I watched the Sugar Bowl last year. They dominated Georgia. They went up 28-0 in the first half. Georgia came back, but still. Damn.

    Yeah I watched that game and I know WV has a very good team and the talent to win the National Championship. I just can't pull for a team from West Virginia. I know they're good, but I can't see myself choosing them for whatever reason.

    I have to agree, but my wild card is Auburn, and LSU looked pretty impressive.

    One thing I know Texas should not be in the top 10. My top 10.

    Ohio St
    Notre Dame
    Auburn
    USC
    West Virginia
    LSU
    Georgia
    Oklahoma
    Louisville
    Tennessee
    Virginia Tech
