CBSSports.com: Auburn, Missouri go top 5 It sets up an interesting scenario. Ohio State, 67th in schedule strength, can ill afford a loss but faces a touch challenge in the Big Ten title game against Michigan State, and they have to get by perennial rival Michigan this week at the Big House, where nothing is given, even when Michigan is a 12 and half point home field underdog. Personally, I think Ohio State is vastly overrated and may not have to wait until December 7 to lose their undefeated status. Alabama, Auburn and Missouri (if the MU Tigers can beat Texas A&M Saturday) will settle things amongst themselves, and it appears regardless of what happens, the SEC will have a dog in the fight for the last BCS title before playoffs begin next year. That has been considered a given most of the year, the assumption being Alabama will be that representative from the South East Conference. But Auburn and Missouri both have a legitimate shot at beating Alabama, and if Ohio State stumbles, that weak schedule meaning a loss takes them out of BCS consideration, it will be somebody from the SEC vs. Florida State for the national championship.
