I'd be very surprised if NU ended up in the National Championship game. With only one loss it's not impossible, but it will be hard to run the table, and win a Big 12 Championship game. Oregon is looking like they could make it, but I'm thinking they'll have a let down against USC. It seems to be a season of let down games.
Nope. The way the current system is set up, every game should be your national championship game and we lost ours last week against Texas. Credit those teams that come out each and every week and WIN big (Oregon)!
Don't get me wrong. I hope it happens with the understanding that we are not "mathematically" eliminated, but I still stand by my previous statement.
I doubt we do.
Auburn plays Mississippi, chattanooga, Georgia, and Alabama and SEC Championship. I predict them to lose one game but that may still keep them ranked ahead of us.
Oregon plays USC, Washington, Cal, Arizona, and Oregon St. I predict them to lose at least one of those.
Boise plays Louisiana Tech, Hawaii, Idaho, Fresno St, Nevada, And Utah St. We could potentially jump them even if they go undefeated.
TCU plays UNLV, Utah, San Diego St, and New Mexico. We could potentially jump them even if they go undefeated.
Michigan St plays Iowa, Minnesota, Purdue, and Penn St. I predict them to lose one game.
Missouri: We play Missouri
Alabama plays LSU, Mississippi St, Georgia St, and Auburn and potentially the SEC Championship. I predict them to win out but could be wrong.
Utah plays Air Force, TCU, Notre Dame, San Diego St, and BYU. I predict them to lose atleast one but even if they don't we could move ahead of them.
Oklahoma: If we beat Missouri we would play Oklahoma most likely in the big 12 championship if they don't lose Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Baylor, or Oklahoma St.
Wisconsin plays Purdue, Indiana, Michigan, and Northwestern. I predict them to win out. We could potentially move ahead of them with wins against highly ranked teams with Missouri and the Big 12 Championship.
Ohio St plays minnesota, Penn St, Iowa and Michigan. I predict them to win out.
LSU plays Alabama, Louisiana-Monroe, Mississippi, and Arkansas. I predict them to lose two more.
Stanford Plays Washington, Arizona, Arizona St, California, and Oregon St. I predict them to win them all.
My Championship Prediction IF we go undefeated: Ohio St and Alabama or Auburn.
Nebraska finishes #3.
