I don't get why Texas or LSU would be favored.
Spencer Sanders isn't 100%. He looked pretty bad toward the end of the TCU game, so my guess is that they think the Pokies won't be able to run it up and that Ewers can torch their secondary because the OSU defense will have to choose between defending against Bijan/Roschon or Worthy/J.T. Sanders.

Rather misleading 40-10 score to the OSU game. 5 turnovers and a failed fake punt have given OSU great field position all game. Iowa's held OSU to 4.5 yards per play (they were averaging 8.1 YPP entering today) and only 11 first downs (they averaged 26.7 prior to today).

Iowa's offense is very, very bad.

Clemson’s possible loss open up possible 3 SEC teams in thr BCS? Can 3 of 4 of Tenn Bama Georgia Ole Miss all end top 6?

or is there a 2 team limit? I feel
I ask this every year

I know I’m a Cuse homer but that non call on the hit OOB was utter BS. Especially after they flagged SU for the same thing.

Which one? There have been several flags / non-flags all going Clemson’s way. CFB officiating never disappoints.
The roughing the passer late hit on the 3rd and 25 play, when the Cuse guy hit the Clemson guy while he was still in bounds, 20 yards from the first down.

A play that has literally and completely altered the course of this game.

The ACC desperately wants Clemson to win this game. They do not want Clemson falling in the rankings, or Syracuse or Wake in the ACC title game instead of Clemson.

I'd love to see Cuse come back and win, but being 6-0 and ahead of Clemson in the 4th at their place was probably the high point of the season.

Cuse has gotten hosed by the zebras, but they also haven’t been able to move the ball at all

It’s amazing when a head coach messes up clock management that bad - just wow
