Assuming ND beats USC (which I find very unlikely) why would anyone think they're better than Michigan. Probably because they beat them on the field, right? Oh wait, ND lost to Michigan by four touchdowns at home, I almost forgot. They also deserved to lose to MSU and to UCLA, but I suppose the luck of the Irish counts for something. It would be pretty bad if they played OSU, something like 4-5 touchdown loss I would predict. Last year they lost to OSU 34-20 and OSU is much better this year while ND is arguably worse. UF lost to Auburn, although not by as much as the score indicated. However, they deserved to lose to Vanderbilt and were a blocked field goal away from losing to South Carolina at home no less... I don't think UF has the weapons to stay with OSU. Their best attribute is their defense, but Troy Smith would spread it out and eat them up. Arkansas has a chance to go undefated in the SEC, which is definitely an accomplishment. However, there's the little 5 TD loss to USC at home. The problem is that they're too one-dimensional and while they'll probably be able to move the ball on the ground a bit against OSU, once they put 8 men in the box it will be all over for them, as OSU can play man to man and have success. Arkansas certainly doesn't have receivers like Manningham and Breaston, and I'd take Arrington over their #1. USC has an immaculate record, except when they played Oregon State... that said, they probably are the most deserving team to play OSU other than UM if they won out, considering they would have played two top 5 teams (Arkansas, ND) as well as Nebraska, Cal, and Oregon, which were all ranked. After they beat ND and UCLA they will be playing in Glendale. The best thing about USC is that their receivers are pretty good (Smith, Jarrett) but they won't have faced a defense like OSU, and I would take Breaston/Manningham over Smith and Jarrett, and Hart over Washington, and UM's defense over USCs, and UM's defense, then rated #2 in the country, gave up 5 touchdowns and 41 points to OSU. UM, which I think is the most deserving team, is the only team on that list to play three top 10 teams (Wisconsin, ND, OSU) and lost by 3 points to the consensus #1 team on the road... Sure the game wasn't as close as the score indicated, but so what? Haven't they shown they're the second best team in the country? The record seems to show that, but they probably won't play for the championship, which is a shame. Nonetheless, the two best teams in college football played Nov 18.
