Big XII Champion: Oklahoma
Pac 12 Champion: Oregon
SEC Champion: Alabama
Big Ten (or B1G if you will) Champion: Wisconsin
ACC Champion: Florida State

Game of the Week: LSU vs. Oregon

Chip Kelly and Les Miles have some fun commercials for the marquee game of the season, highlighting some of the interesting aspects of their coaching careers (did you know Les Miles ate grass before every game?).

Oklahoma leads our poll this week, followed closely by Alabama, Oregon and LSU. These 4 are the odds on favorites to make a run for the championship game this year. Oklahoma has the easiest road (they are the only top 5 team who doesn't play a top 5 team at least once in the season), but they have a couple of hard games: Texas A&M, Florida State and Oklahoma State.

Other teams in the top 10 are (5)Stanford with Heisman favorite Andrew Luck at the helm. Boise State comes in at 6 in our poll, senior QB Kellen Moore and the smurf turf are always good for a few wins each year. Florida State, who is trying to recapture the glory form Bobby Bowden's best yearsm comes in at 7. Wisconsin, coming off their trip to the Rose Bowl, has the honor of being the first B1G team in the poll. A pair of Big XII teams, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M, round out the top 10.

Here's a little highlight video from last year to help get you motivated for this year. It looks to be a great season and I, for one, cannot wait to see it play out. Less than 1 week until kickoff!
