Even though we're only approaching the seventh week of college football, there's always going to be a prediction. For some their prediction may come true, but for other's... Not so lucky. As the year unfolds we are seeing indecisiveness in seeking a clear victor in the SEC. Two teams are fighting hard to reach that spot to represent the SEC in the BCS National Championship. We have (2) University of Alabama and (1) University of Florida. Both are very talented, if Florida wins the SEC Championship and goes on to win the BCS then we will witness their first ever undefeated season. If Alabama goes on to defeat Florida in the SEC and wins the BCS National Championship we will watch them receive their thirteenth National Championship Title.

But over on the other side of the country, we have what seems to be at this point a clear winner who will get a ride to the National Championship. Who is this? None other than the University of Texas. Texas is placed currently as the third highest ranked team in the country. Whoever loses in the SEC will move down to the third position and Texas will move up to second. The Big 12 has many talented teams and in the early stages of the year Oklahoma State was not looking too shabby until they fell off the radar. Now it's Texas' turn to pick up the pieces and possibly bring the National Championship title to their conference.

Alabama & Florida (SEC Championship):

Alabama as I've said before has many skilled qualities as does Florida. But Alabama has a spark about them that I think people underestimate. They've got the skill, the heart, and the willpower. But you can argue that the Gators do too. It can go both ways. But Alabama is a team that has the ability to beat Florida. LSU only held Florida to 13 points in Death Valley. Imagine what Alabama can do to stop Florida. It would be a close game but I feel in my gut that Alabama can and has a good shot at winning.

Texas Analysis:

Texas has the skill, they're lead by Heisman candidate Colt McCoy. They've got the defense and offense to beat anyone in and out of their conference. They showed a little sluggishness in week 1-2 but got their momentum. They are definitely the clear-cut winner in the western region of the U.S.

BCS National Championship Predictions:

I'm going to say that although Texas plays good teams, the SEC is a conference that has delivered a punch the past few years. Three out of the last five National Championships have gone to an SEC school (Florida 3 times). The Florida beat Oklahoma last year in the National Championship when many people thought Oklahoma would have the chance to beat Florida. Instead they were shut down, but anything can happen of course. I'm going to say that if Alabama can pull off a win against Florida (which is very possible) that they will win the BCS National Championship. And my prediction is... Alabama Crimson Tide Vs. Texas Longhorns for the BCS National Championship.

Probability For A Win:

Alabama 54%

Texas 46%

Game Score:

Alabama: 24

Texas: 21
