Stupid Stanford. MSU would have deserved the 4th spot.
Just coming in here to comment on that. Looks like MSU would have deserved the 4th spot they would have received.
Big Ten had a mixed day on the whole with Nebraska beating Georgia and the MSU win, but losses by Iowa to LSU and Wisconsin to South Carolina. All four were excellent close games though. I was really surprised Iowa hung in there with LSU and they had their opportunities, but just couldn't capitalize enough. If Ohio State beats Clemson, it would be a good close for the Big Ten even with a losing record overall (though not having Penn State in a bowl game hurt them a bit).
Surprised by Central Florida and Duke. I really thought A&M would throttle Duke, but they barely pulled it out with that very late pick 6 for the win. Central Florida looked damn good against Baylor. Really earned their spot and definitely helped their cause for next year when the AAC loses its automatic birth (though the AAC will probably be the conference that gets that 6th spot the most).
