3 down, 3 to go

A week ago, I wrote a post detailing how Ohio State could still get to the National Championship.

I was mocked on a few blogs (mainly Michigan ones, so neener neener neener). It doesn't look so far-fetched anymore, does it?

So I said we needed six games to go our way. The results so far?

-Ohio State beats Michigan? Check.
-Oklahoma gets upset in the regular season? Check.
-Oregon gets upset? Check.

What we need to happen?

-Kansas or Missouri to lose - already a guarantee, since they play each other.
-Winner of Kansas/Missouri to lose to Oklahoma in the Big 12 title game

And ONE of the following needs to happen;

-LSU to lose either to Arkansas or in the SEC title game
-West Virginia to lose to Connecticut or Pitt.

This is not so much "grasping at straws" anymore. We get to sit back and see if we're going to play in California on January 1st or New Orleans on January 7th.

Should be fun.....

Don't forget, Mizzou or Kansas could win the Big 12 as long as both LSU and WVU lose, then we're in.
