My Record in Week 11: 9-1
Best game from Week 11: #15 Texas A&M 29, #1 Alabama 24
After wondering if the mighty SEC would ever fall, it finally happened this weekend. SEC newcomer Texas A&M and star freshman quarterback Johnny "Football" Manziel took down the #1 Alabama Crimson Tide on the road in a game where many thought they could not win. The Crimson Tide are now number four in the BCS standings and absolutely need to win the SEC Championship against #5 Georgia to have chance at making the title game. They need to have two of the three undefeated teams lose to make it back to the big game. Kansas State avoided a trap game at TCU where quarterback Collin Klein put on another solid performance. The Wildcats defense also shutdown the Horned Frogs offense all night. The Ducks went into Cal, where they have been known to struggle and were able to pull away in the second half. All of the starters for the Duck's defensive line were out and safety Avery Patterson injured his knee during the game. On the offensive side of the ball, running back Kenjon Barner hurt his right hand and quarterback Marcus Mariota fell awkwardly on his left arm. Both were able to return and Mariota ended up having his best passing performance of the season with 377 yards and six touchdowns. There was not much to say about the Fighting Irish. They got the job done at Boston College winning 21-6 by relying on their defense as usual.
If you look at the Top 10 of the BCS Standings you will see that six of those teams are from the SEC Conference. This is the first time in BCS history that this has ever happened. The SEC takes up four through nine in the rankings and the teams are Alabama, Georgia, Florida, LSU, Texas A&M, and South Carolina. What is crazy about this whole scenario is that only two of these SEC teams can be invited to BCS Bowl games. Here are my projections of who I think will play in each BCS Bowl Game right now.
