We know, we know. It's a little early to be thinking about the BCS Championship game when it's still four months away.

In addition, we'll single out a couple of teams that were victorious this week, but had performances that caused us to raise a concerning eyebrow.
We'll start by looking at the teams that shouldn't even bother thinking about playing in the championship game anymore.
