As you all probably know, USC lost to Oregon State. Again.

What does this mean for the Trojans? Well, the upside for them is that if they can win-out, they can sneak back in. The downside is that the rest of the Pac-10 has gotten slaughtered for the most part out-of-conference and their strength of schedule will not be what they expected.

Another plus is that the SEC can’t send two teams to the national title game.

I can’t say I know exactly why Oklahoma is number 2, it definitely looks like they and UGA (or whoever comes out of the SEC mostly unscathed) are in the driver’s seat for the national title.

Coverage of this weekend’s games will be up later today.
