Texas @ Oklahoma on 10/11/08Ideally for Penn State, Texas will beat Oklahoma then immediately have a big let down the next week against Missouri. Then Alabama beats LSU (assuming LSU has already dropped one game to either Florida or Georgia). This would mean that PSU would play Missouri for the National Title! GWAH!

Alabama @ LSU on 11/08/08
The absolute key for PSU is that Texas beats Oklahoma. Should Oklahoma beat Texas the likelihood of PSU hopping the remaining four teams ahead of them is very low.
This is all predicated on the fact that PSU wins out the rest of its games. Which means PSU will have to win at the Horseshoe (hasn't been done in 30 years), beat Michigan (hasn't been done in 12 years), beating Wisconsin, and besting Sparty. This was just to illustrate what some of the most important games are in order for Penn State to play for the title!
GO STATE! BEAT PURDUE!
