Turned the Iron Bowl against Auburn into a Crimson Tide clinic. Next stop: Atlanta, for the SEC title tilt against red-hot Georgia.

We all knew that Urban Meyer coaching The Ohio State University spelled gloom for the rest of the Big Ten and non-conference opponents alike, but undefeated in Year 1? And while on probation? Coach Meyer, even for you, that's some trick!

Will be highest-ranked Pac-12 team but won't win a conference title in 2012. Instead, the Ducks will settle for another BCS bowl appearance . . . something that is routine under coach Chip Kelly.

I freely admit that I more than had my doubts that the Gators could not just win at Florida State, but put up 30-plus points in doing so. What a year for coach Will Muschamp and his team, which arrived back on the national scene at least one year early.

Hard-fought win on the road against an Arkansas team that really wanted one signature win in 2012. The Bayou Bengals gritted out a tough one, and now await their postseason destination.

Fun for all of us to watch the "sparring" between South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier and Clemson head man Dabo Swinney in the weeks leading up to the game, but once the game started, the sparring stopped and the Gamecocks pass rush began.

Aggie football is fun to watch, and as a team they just got better and better each week. Yes, "Johnny Football" is a HUGE reason why, but coach Kevin Sumlin should take a bow, too, for fashioning such a winner during this program’s first year in the SEC. Expand Description

The "BellDozer," (QB Blake Bell) would not be denied on fourth down with the clock about to run out . . . and Bedlam erupts in Norman. The Sooners outlasted Oklahoma State and got some revenge for the 2011 loss in Stillwater.

The ACC took on the SEC this past weekend in multiple games, with Florida State being the one ACC team that most thought would win. Nope. Now FSU has to regroup as the Seminoles play Georgia Tech for the ACC championship this weekend in Charlotte, NC.

Tough Senior Night for the Bruins as Stanford came to town and controlled the evening in Pasadena. But UCLA had already punched its ticket for the Pac-12 title game after beating the crosstown Trojans a week earlier for the South Division title. Now the Bruins head to Palo Alto to settle the Pac-12 championship on Friday, and believe me, Jim Mora will have his team ready to play. Collapse Description

Just could not get out of neutral offensively in the second half at Ohio State (and yes, the Buckeyes had plenty to do with that). I do like the toughness I see in the program, though.
