Five title games to choose from

The fun thing about this bowl season is that instead of one championship game, there will be at least five to choose from.

The winner between Oklahoma (11-2) and W. Virginia (10-2) in the Tostitas Fiesta Bowl have just as much right to the title as LSU or Ohio State. The Buckeyes shouldn't get the nod since the Big Ten won't man-up and play a championship game. The Hawaii (12-0) or Georgia (10-2) winner could be national champs as could USC (10-2) if it beats Illinois (9-3). Either Virginia Tech (11-2) or (Kansas 11-1) deserve the title as much as anyone. Throw in Missiouri at 11-2, a winner over Arkansas, and you have another title matchup.

While the "official" national champ will be Ohio State or LSU, anyone with any real football sense knows the truth. The only reason LSU is in is because they didn't drop as far as they should have after losing to a very bad Arkansas team in the regular season finale. The Razorbacks couldn't beat either Colorado or Texas Tech, the two teams that beat Oklahoma.
