Alabama cruised to a 35-10 Week 1 victory over Virginia Tech, but the two-time defending BCS national champions weren't as dominant as expected. Still, the Crimson Tide remain the favorites to earn a trip to the Rose Bowl for the BCS title game.

Oregon once again showed why it is considered one of the best teams in the land with a dominant effort on both offense and defense.
Meanwhile, two ACC programs played well enough to enter the national title picture.
But do any of these teams have what it takes to challenge the dominance of Alabama the SEC?
