The Southeastern Conference has four teams—Alabama, Texas A&M, LSU and Georgia—rooted in the BCS championship conversation, as the league looks to win its eighth straight national title.
Oregon and Stanford of the Pac-12 Conference have other plans, as the two West Coast programs are looking to take the next step and end the SEC's reign.
Meanwhile, Ohio State is looking to do the same under head coach Urban Meyer, who started the SEC's streak while at Florida in 2006.
Finally, Clemson and Florida State have entered their names in the running under thanks to tremendous quarterback play from Tajh Boyd and Jameis Winston.
Do any of these programs have the gusto to take the title, or will the SEC reign supreme once again?
