The biggest surprise through the first seven weeks of the college football season has been the Oregon State Beavers.
At 5-0, Oregon State has already has some impressive wins on its resume with victories over Wisconsin, UCLA, Arizona and BYU and comes in at No. 8 in the inaugural 2012 BCS rankings.
Then there is Oregon, who may feel snubbed by its No. 3 ranking behind Florida. Either way, there is still hope for the Ducks to sneak into the title game, but they'll have to get by Oregon State first.
If both teams can somehow navigate the Pac-12 schedule up until Nov. 24, each team will be undefeated for the Civil War Game in Corvallis. And with the way these two teams have looked so far this season, it's not out of the realm of possibility.
The winner of that game could very well find themselves in the national title game, and the loser could be out of a trip to a BCS bowl.
