should Auburn jump over Ohio St? No, they have one loss and Ohio St is undefeated. And Auburn played Arkansas St, Western Carolina, and Florida Atlantic out of conference. Western Carolina isn't even an FBS school.

Y'all do realize that Auburn needed a hailmary to be UGA and just a wacky set of circumstances to beat Bama, right? They're a heartbeat away from being a 3-loss team.

They beat the two time, until-today undefeated champion. Im a B1G guy but IF Auburn wins the SEC I think they should get a shot at the title.

OSU squeaked by UM due to a missed 2 pt conversion and Buffalo and Fla A&M aren't quite powerhouses either.

It's not wacky when you're tied with a team late in the 4th quarter.

It is called a rivalry game for a reason Alabama found that out yesterday.
Alabama wasn't very impressive against Mississippi St. they were due to fall . Someone mentioned a revamped Vandy team that backed out of the game with OSU this year and the Bucks had to schedule FAMU on short notice.The SEC coaches know Urban will have his team ready to play and the Big10 critics will eat crow in the near future.Ask any Nebraska fan if they think the Big10 is a push over sub par conference it was a good fit for them and Big10 football.

Auburn absolutely jumps over Ohio State.

OSU has 0 losses, 2 Top 25 games, no Top 15 games.
Auburn has 1 loss, 5 top 25, 3 Top 10 games.

And the most stunning statistic of all: In the regular season, Ohio State has not beaten an AP Top Ten team since 2006.

If you are unfamiliar with this game and its outcome, be sure and watch all the way to the end of the video.
