A lot of people seem to think half of the championship equation in college football will be revealed when Alabama hosts LSU this weekend. The other half? Well, when you have variables that include Wyoming, Notre Dame and Texas Tech, it's not the easiest thing to decode. The latter three teams are among those remaining on the schedules of Boise State, Stanford and Oklahoma State, respectively. Rank 'Em: What does your Top 25 look like?
What happens if they all win out?
As Clemson and Kansas State proved, remaining unbeaten isn't easy, but what happens if four teams, including the SEC champions, do just that?
What happens if nobody wins out?
At the other end of the chaos pendulum, what if we're left with no more than one unbeaten team? Among teams currently with one loss, which might be able to get back in the mix?
What's ahead for Boise State?
TCU and Wyoming are a combined 11-4 this season, but could a road trip to San Diego State (4-3) be the ultimate trap game?
What's ahead for Oklahoma State?
The Bedlam showdown with Oklahoma looms large, but Texas Tech showed last week it can't be taken for granted -- and showed this week neither can a trip to Iowa State.
What's ahead for Stanford?
The Cardinal's three toughest remaining games are all at home, but those three opponents are a combined 16-8.
