Power Ranking the 1-Loss Teams by 'Best Loss'

With only one remaining unbeaten college football team eligible to receive a BCS berth this season, we've come to the inevitable chaos that surrounds selecting the best “one-loss” team to play for a BCS National Championship.

The SEC fanatics will undoubtedly harp on their “murderers' row” schedule—a thickheaded argument coming on the heels of a single week that included games against Wofford, Sam Houston State, Jacksonville State, Western Carolina and Georgia Southern.

But does the SEC sport the best one-loss team?

With a fresh batch of late-season BCS rankings, we'll jump into the fray of picking the best one-loss team to theoretically take on unbeaten Notre Dame in the BCS title game.

But rather than looking at the team itself, we thought we'd judge the teams by the “quality” of that one blemish on the books.

The result is our power rankings of the one-loss teams by “best loss.”
