College Football Universe:
With last weekend's wild results in college football, many are left wondering how various scenarios could play out for the BCS Championship. It is certain that Notre Dame and Alabama will make it to the national championship if they both win out, but if one loses, BCS chaos could erupt again. Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said, "Now we don't have to answer questions about style points or politics or anything like that. We get a chance to play for the national championship- provided we win this week." (USA Today)Georgia also controls their own destiny; win out and they are in the big game. Trying to not look too far ahead, Bulldogs coach Mark Richt said, "We're just focusing on today really, and then we'll focus on tomorrow. It's one day at a time."There are still others looming that have a good shot if one of the top teams slip up. Florida and Oregon are the next two most likely to move up if a falter happens. Kansas State and LSU are distant l...

Though a handful of games remain, the regular season is essentially over. Two teams weathered their schedules and finished with perfect results– Notre Dame, which...
Michigan DE Frank Clark came off the edge unblocked and absolutely levels Ohio State QB Braxton Miller. Miller was shaken up on the play, likely having the wind knocked out of him. If I got hit like that I’m not sure I would get up again, so you have to give Miller credit for his toughness.
The All-Big Ten teams came out Monday evening and are sure to stir up discussion. Ohio State's Braxton Miller and John Simon were named league players of the year at their positions, but when it came to consensus first-team All-Big Ten choices, the undefeated Buckeyes were curiously lacking.
Ohio State enters its' season finale on Saturday vs. Michigan at 11-0. The following are the 11 biggest reasons the Buckeyes have avoided defeat so far -- along with a few reasons and notes that pertain to their chances of being 12-0 by late Saturday afternoon.

Ohio State's season is prematurely over, thanks to NCAA sanctions.
But the lack of a bowl game could serve coach Urban Meyer's purposes next year.
Meyer says he will do anything to fight complacency after the Buckeyes went 12-0 this season. To do that, he may just summon up the issue of the bowl ban the school accepted for violations that occurred under deposed coach Jim...
The 2012 Ohio State season will always be remembered for “what ifs?”
The Buckeyes finished their 12-0 season on Saturday by beating Michigan in what might be the biggest rivalry in all of American sports. But Ohio State can’t actually do anything with that undefeated record.

The Ohio State Buckeyes are thankful for their undefeated record as they play the Michigan Wolverines in their annual classic rivalry game, but they could have had much more to be thankful for today. With a win against Michigan, Ohio State could finish the 2012 college football season undefeated with a record of 12-0 and a spot in the BCS Championship Game.
That is, had they forfeited...

For the sixth time in school history, AP No. 4 Ohio State (12-0, 8-0 Big Ten) has finished a season undefeated, but the final game certainly wasn’t pretty. It took three second-half turnovers by the...
