The 2007-08 season will always be remembered for the wild upsets that occurred almost every week during the regular season.
During the final week of the regular season, the top two ranked teams both lost sending the BCS into a tail-spin. LSU lost in triple-overtime to Arkansas (their second triple-OT loss of the season), and No. 4 Missouri defeated No. 2 Kansas and took the top spot in the BCS standings.
However, Kansas was defeated by Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship game, and unranked Pittsburgh defeated No. 2 West Virginia in the annual back-yard brawl. Ohio State, ranked No. 5 prior to these games, jumped all the way to No. 1 due to the upsets.
Hawaii ended up undefeated by defeating Washington, but like Boise State in a previous season, their schedule was deemed to weak to be given a chance to compete for the National Championship.
No. 6 Missouri was also left out when No. 8 Kansas was selected to a BCS bowl game as one of three at-large teams.
LSU defeated Tennessee in the SEC Championship game, which catapulted them from No. 2 since both No.1 Missouri and No. 2 West Virginia lost. LSU would then be selected to face Ohio State for the BCS National Championship.
LSU went on to defeat Ohio State 38-24 handing Ohio State their second lost to a SEC school in as many years.
