The national title race is now completely wide ass open. The Southern Cal strength of schedule is so weak that projections earlier in the week showed that an undefeated USC would finish below a 1 loss UGA in the computer polls. Now that USC and Ohio State each have a loss, it looks like they are both all but eliminated from consideration for the title game.
It's an SEC vs. Big 12 race for those two final slots. Saturday Night just got that much more ridiculous. (Update: Obviously, Penn State and Wisconsin are still in it from the Big 10. I sort of forgot about that conference in the hazy post-midnight victory smog.)
Insanity thy name is Blackout.
(BTW -- this loss means that Ohio State's best case scenario for their season is likely another trip to the Rose Bowl to catch another beating from Southern Cal. Now THAT is comedy.)
