With half of the college football season in the books, this is the time for each and every team in the polls to make its final case for why it should be the team playing in the BCS National Championship Game.
With very few teams separating themselves through the first half, there are programs that see this as an opportunity to make a run.
There are a total of four one-loss teams in the Top 10 of the latest BCS rankings, but the USC Trojans and LSU Tigers quickly catch your eye. That is because those two programs were considered two of the top three teams in the preseason AP poll, as many thought that could possibly be the 2012 national championship matchup this season.
With both suffering an early loss, it is likely only one team can seriously make a championship push, but which one could that be?
Let's break down both the LSU Tigers and USC Trojans and see which is the best team in the country with one loss.
