Heck, even Notre Dame, Texas,and K-State could make a legit argument to be in the game if they can run the table.
There is no way FSU would be ranked ahead of Oregon if both ran the table. Have you looked at FSU's remaining schedule? They play #10 Florida and thats it.
Georgia plays #6 SC and #10 Florida. I personally think Georgia will lose to SC and be out of the picture.
If Southern Carolina runs the table beating a #5 #4 #10 and #15 I could see them posing a threat...but they would lose in the SEC championship game.
Same situation for LSU, cannot beat Alabama, period.
Oregon plays (as of now) #13 USC, #14 Or St. which I see running the table and potentially being a top 10 team by the time they face off, #18 Stanford, and presumably #13 USC again in the Pac 12 championship game.
While I think Oregon needs to do a little more in the out of conference scheduling, I think an easy OOC schedule this year was wise after Boise St and LSU.
