I think TAMU is better than Miss. State and will be a tougher game for Bama.
On the Stanford/ND game - I also don't really care about either team, but it looked like Stanford got robbed to me. On the 4th down the guy with the ball didn't look like he ever touched the ground. Maybe they wouldn't have won still, but they deserved another go round to try.
I'm kind of lackadaisical about most of the teams in the running for the National Title. No one has a truly trying schedule. Still, just from watching all the top dogs roll over their competition, Bama looks the most impressive. They've beaten all but one team by 20 points or more, and all but two by 30 points or more. They're just flat out dominating. Oregon has some similar win margins, but they're allowing a much higher average number of points. Oregon/USC will be a fun one and a decision maker.
