It's never easy to figure out who will be the last two teams standing under the current BCS system.
Thankfully, that system goes away soon.
In the meantime, the struggle to define and recognize the actual two best teams continues. And this year, it seems to be taking shape.
Alabama continued their run of staking a claim in the BCS title hunt by easily dispatching LSU Saturday night 38-17.
Sure, the game was close in the 1st half, but the Tide outscored the Tigers 21-3 in the 2nd half to close things out. 3 A.J McCarron TD passes, combined with T.J Yeldon's 133 rushing yards and 2 TD's, were more than enough to overpower LSU.
The win leaves Alabama with a 9-0 (6-0 SEC) record, and assured them of holding the #1 ranking in the BCS poll due out Sunday night.
It also leaves the Tide in sight of yet another BCS title. As of this week, their likely opponent…FSU. The only challenge left on the schedule? The Iron Bowl game at Auburn.

As for the aforementioned Florida State. Well, they just keep beating the crap out of inferior ACC teams.
This weeks victim: Wake Forest. FSU jumped out to a 42-0 1st half lead and well, they never looked back, winning the game 59-3.
The game 6 interceptions by the Seminole defense and a fumble return for a touchdown. No, Jameis Winston didn't have a crazy good game….but he didn't need to.
The 'Noles have it easy from here. Two more ACC games and the grand finale against a really bad Florida Gator team.
