Week 14 Top 25

West Virginia and Missouri were playing for the right to meet each other in the BCS Championship game...all they had to do was win and they were in. But like every other weekend this college football season, crazy things started happening. Pat White went down for WV and Pittsburgh, a 28 point underdog, shocked the Mountaineers at home to eliminate them from the picture. Oklahoma rolled Missouri in the Big 12 championship game, sending the Sooners to a BCS game and dropping Missouri all the way to the Cotton Bowl. Ouch.

Controversy and debates began and after the politicking was over and ballots turned in, Ohio State and LSU rose to the top. They will meet in the BCS title game in New Orleans on January 7. Now the debate begins on whether the system put the most deserving teams in the game. People are clamoring that USC and Georgia are the hottest teams or that Oklahoma just beat the #1 team and should be in the game, but they seem to be a minority. Most are in agreement that LSU and Ohio State are the most deserving and should make for a great championship game.
