Regardless, Penn State has cemented its strangle hold on third place and now seems to be pressing Alabama for second place. The Lions trail Alabama by only 25 votes in the coaches and 29 votes in the AP polls which leaves the Lions in good position to hop into the championship game (provided, of course, one of those teams lose and PSU wins out).
Just as a heads up, Texas still has to play:
@ Texas TechThere is also the Big Twelve championship game should they survive this run through the regular season.
Alabama still has to play:
Arkansas StateAs well as a possible SEC championship game.
At this point it looks more likely that Texas will lose a game before Alabama does. Which means PSU vs. Alabama for the title looks pretty good.
Should both teams lose a game, it will probably be PSU vs. Texas. This is because Texas will still have played in and presumably won the Big 12 Title. This is because the hold the tie-breaker with Oklahoma. I don't see OU getting a shot at the title without being able to win their own league.
This is where we stand. Enjoy the bye week.
GO STATE! ENJOY THE BYE WEEK!
