PLAYERS: Nick SabanGene Chizik
TEAMS:

Auburn at Alabama: Should Auburn get blown out, and all signs currently point to that happening, Chizik may be the 4th SEC coach this season to lose his job (Joker Phillips – UK, Derek Dooley – UT, John L Smith – Ark). Alabama, should they win, will face Georgia in the SEC Championship for the right to play in the BCS title game. Florida at Florida State: The Gators are looking to go 11 – 1 and retain an outside shot at the BCS title game should Notre Dame lose to USC Saturday night. Florida State is in the same position. The Noles are on the outside of the BCS title hunt looking in, but if they beat the Gators and Notre Dame loses, they could be next in line to make the BCS title game. Oregon at Oregon State: The Ducks are looking at the BCS title game from a longshot point of view. They won’t be playing in the Pac 12 title game, and would really need a miracle to happen to make the BCS title game. A win over Oregon State wouldn’t hurt their chances though. The Beavers are playing to cap off a great season that no one saw coming. Notre Dame at USC: This one is simple. If the Irish win, they are in the BCS title game, if they lose, they probably go to the Sugar Bowl. USC is playing without quarterback Matt Barkley and with a quarterback who made a bold prediction earlier this week that the Trojans “will win this game”.
