Oklahoma state will play if they can beat OU. I don't see oregon passing alabama, gary danielson and the rest of the SEC shills are pushing for a rematch.
If Okie St loses.
FWIW[ Oregon lost to LSU in Dallas (Jerry's World)
sure there were more LSU fans there but in no means was the game played in baton rouge-
They should be atleast 3rd in the nation.
What if Arkansas beats LSU and then wins SEC. Or Arkansas or LSU gets beat by a hot Georgia team int eh SEC title game. Then OU beats Okie st.
Arkansas vs. Oregon? Arkansas vs. Oklahoma?
things could get interesting!
A couple hour drive from Baton Rouge verses a couple thousand mile plane trip, and Dallas is full of LSU grads and supporters, it was in all ways but officially an LSU home game.
Alabama had it's game at home and Oregon managed to score TDs against LSU. Bama is a solid team but the LSU-Bama game was not exactly the most exciting game of the year.
Everything depends on the OU-Okie State game but the discussion could get interesting.
This throws a whole different interesting question to the situation. Could be fun to follow.
BTR to DFW is a 7 hour drive....
I agree that there were many more LSU fans in Dallas however it wasn't played in Tiger Stadium.
God, I hope not - but that's just because I hate Oregon.
What if Arky beats LSU, who goes to SEC title game?
Bama wins tiebreaker with Arky
Arky wins tiebreaker with LSU
LSU wins tiebreaker with Bama
How many thousand LSU alum live in Dallas? I'm guessing not a big Oregon presence there.
Jerryworld isn't quite death valley but it was definately an LSU home game the same as for example a Nebraska-UCLA game played in Kansas City would be a kNU home game in all ways but name.
This. It is not going to be fun listening to talk radio up here this week. The Duck blow hards are going to be going full bore.
The teams that give Oregon trouble are those who at least come close to their speed and quickness at the 'skill' positions, while having a size and strength advantage on the lines. LSU. Although I think with more moving parts, Oregon was at a disadvantage early in the season. I think they could take LSU now.
I'm just excited for the playoff debate threads on all buffs as this mess becomes more convoluted
No they shouldn't.

I don't get why Bama is ahead of Oregon? Bama lost to LSU at home, Oregon lost on a neutral (basically road) field to LSU and just smacked Stanford at Stanford.
Bama lost by a FG in OT
Oregon lost by 13 in a game not as close as the score would indicate
plus Bama is in the SEC and there's an SEC bias
I think at this point in the season if Bama and Oregon played, Oregon wins. Bama has a much better defense but isn't going to keep Oregon from scoring, I question if Bama could score enough to stay in the game. Oregon gets a couple big plays, jumps out on the scoreboard and Bama has to come out of their shell. That leads to more mistakes and Oregon quickly has 30+ on the board and is rolling.
I also don't have a clue how tini imagines OU ahead of Oregon. OU lost to Texas Tech and struggled with some other marginal teams.
I don't like the Ducks but right now the only team I see that I would favor to beat them would be LSU again. LSU has explosive athletes like Oregon has and more of them, especially on defense.
Leaving out 7 other tiebreakers that will all be ties-
The tied team with the highest ranking in the Bowl Championship Series Standings following the last weekend of regular-season games shall be the divisional representative in the SEC Championship Game, unless the second of the tied teams is ranked within five-or-fewer places of the highest ranked tied team. In this case, the head-to-head results of the top two ranked tied teams shall determine the representative in the SEC Championship Game.
More than likely-LSU.
Oregon was never in that game. Alabama should have beat LSU. If Bama played Oregon neutral field Bama -7 easy.
If LSU wins out, I expect the winner of Oklahoma/Okie Lite to play for the national championship. LSU's already beaten Bama and Oregon, so they've got nothing to prove there. If every game counts like it's supposed to, you can't make someone beat a team a 2nd time to prove that they're more worthy of being champs than them (if there are other worthy options for an opponent).
I agree. I don't think anybody (outside of the fan base) wants a rematch of LSU and Bama or Oregon.
Well, at least the BCS ranking is the #8 tiebreaker, unlike the #2 it was in the Big 12 (when there actually WERE 12 teams) the year Whorns-Boomer-Sand Aggies had the circle jerk happening (2008 season I think?)
Now that we have a completely unbiased opinion in the matter that settles it.:rofl::laugh::rofl2:
agree. LSU beat Bama at Bama. not sure how "should" factors in unless that's one of the BCS criteria...along with calling "do overs".
As stellar as the vaunted SEC D's are, Oregon is every bit as much off the charts on O.
I've not been impressed by SEC offenses in general this year, and I don't think it's a stretch to see Oregon put up 30 or more on Alabama. With the way Oregon's D has been playing the last few weeks, I don't really seeing 'Bama putting over 20 on them.
At any rate, if there was any way to see Oregon play 'Bama it would be a great game...
LSU put up 40 (9 on Bama with #1 QB) on Oregon without their #1 QB. Oregon only put up 27 and 14 of that was after the game was already decided. I would love to play Oregon in a bowl.
Not about a do over-I don't care one thing about a rematch. Just comparing Bama's effort vs Oregon's against LSU.
We agree it would make for a great game.
Oregon is a much better team since that first game. Especially with the Black Mamba having some experience, and even moreso on defense. You could say that about a lot of teams, but Oregon is playing at as high a level as anyone right now. But their fate lies in the hands of voters...
