Imagine one of the nation's most high-powered offenses pitted against one of the nation's most aggressive, hard-nosed defenses.
That's the kind of matchup you'll get if the Oklahoma State Cowboys are matched against the Alabama Crimson Tide. The nation's best against the nation's best at this point is not too far off from happening if both teams are able to take care of business against the likes of Oklahoma and LSU, respectively. Mike Gundy's high-powered offense, led by quarterback Branden Weeden, has yet to be stopped by anybody, and are now the dominant force of the Big 12 with Oklahoma going down.
Alabama continues to be deadlocked with LSU for SEC dominance, and in two weeks, one of them will battle for not only the SEC, but the National Championship as well. Alabama has an underrated offense, able to pound it on the ground with Trent Richardson and through the air with Marquis Maize. On defense, they have some of the best size and speed that any defensive coordinator would love to have. LSU is similar to Alabama in these aspects, and only their matchup will determine their fate in the BCS.
