With the college football regular season coming to a close, the question that always presents itself is back yet again, “who will be in the college football national championship game?” Anyone that watches college football knows that LSU has been the best team in the country all year, and will be competing for the national championship game. They are the only undefeated team in the whole country, and they have some very impressive wins against teams like Oregon, Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, and Auburn all top 25 teams and even a few top 10 teams.
Oklahoma State has some very impressive stats this year. They have scored 592 total points, which comes out to a little over 49 points per game. They have also only given up a total of 310 points which Is about 26 points per game. They have some very impressive wins over teams like Texas, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech. The only setback that they suffered was a heartbreaking defeat against the Iowa State Cyclones. If it wasn’t for this they would be in the national championship game. Another reason that you can argue that Oklahoma State should be in the national championship game over Alabama is because they won the big 12 conference championship, and Alabama didn’t even play for their conference title.
Alabama on the other hand has also put up some very impressive stats. They have a substantially worse offense at only 39 points per game, but a much better defense giving up only 8 points per game. Some noticeable wins are against teams like Florida, Tennessee, and Auburn, which are some of the other best teams in the nation. Alabama also suffered a tough loss against No. 1 LSU. Many may argue that since they lost to a much better team they should be in, but many others don’t feel that way.
A lot of people are saying that Alabama has had a much better season than Oklahoma State, but after reviewing the numbers, OSU looks like they have been just as good, if not better than Alabama. Also, when LSU beat Alabama, they beat them 9-6. I know that a lot of people, including myself do not want to see a 9-6 BCS national championship game. I personally would much rather see the high powered offense of OSU go up against LSU, but either way we will see a great finale to the college football season.
But who do you think will be in the college football national championship game?
