Teams That Could End The SEC’s National Championship Winning Streak Next Season

No matter what the outcome was Monday night in the BCS National Championship Game, the SEC was going to have one of its members win the title for sixth straight year.

Unless you root for a team in the SEC, then you are ready for someone else from a different conference to hoist the AFCA National Championship Trophy.  Monday night’s game featured two teams from the SEC, and after that unentertaining game, most college football fans are ready for the next champion to come from a different conference.

Now that that season is officially over, it is never too early to look ahead at the teams that could end the SEC’s winning streak in the BCS National Title Game in 2013.Matt-Barkley-Lane-Kiffin

Matt Barkley’s decision to stay in school makes USC the favorites to run the table in the PAC 12 and prime candidates to play in the BCS National Championship Game.  They have 16 returning starters coming back next season and a home game against Oregon, which sets up nicely for the Trojans to go undefeated.


They are losing LaMichael James, but RBs Kenjon Barner and De’Anthony Thomas will be just as productive, and the Ducks should be just as dominant on offense as they have been in recent years.  Oregon plays a lot of home games early and should be undefeated on November 3 when they head to Los Angeles to play USC.  If they can win that game against USC, the Ducks will have a very good chance of heading to the national championship game.


When Landry Jones decided to stay in school, it made the Sooners become the favorites to win the new look Big 12.  They return a lot of starters next season and if they can avoid a typical upset loss then they could easily find themselves undefeated at the end of the season.


The Seminoles did not live up to expectations in 2011 but did show glimpses of the superior team that they could be.  They have a lot of young talent coming back, and right now on paper they might have one of the best defenses in college football.  Being in the ACC is a huge luxury for the Seminoles because the conference is not strong and they could very easily be undefeated next season.


The Big Ten is wide open next season and the Wolverines will be returning the conference’s most athletic player in Denard Robinson.  They were better than most people thought they were going to be in 2011, and if they can build off that, then they will tough to beat.



  1. My money is on either Michigan or USC

    SEC wins a 7th straight in 2013. Book it.

  3. The only thing that will stop the SEC is a real playoff system in college football. The way it is now, the media dictates who will play in the national championship game each year. As long as the love affair between the SEC and ESPN continues we will never see the truly two best teams in the nation battle it out for a title. Everybody believes the SEC is a superior conference because ESPN says so. There is much more parity in college football than people want to believe. This year's BCS title game was pathetic. Neither offense executed well and so we were forced to hear how dominant their defenses were. There are probably at least 10 teams in the country that could have ran circles around LSU or 'Bama Monday night. Not saying they're not good, they're just not great. And, the SEC, as a whole, is no better than any other conference.

    • 10 teams could have ran circles around LSU or Bama? haha yea ran circles in the backfield trying to get across the line of scrimage. You sound like a big baby Boise State or Ok State fan.. Hey if these "10 teams" you talk about are so good.. Win all your games so there won't be any question on who goes.. Oh that's right.. Ok State can't beat Iowa State. Bama lost by 3 to the best team.. Ok State lost by 6 to a crappy team. Sounds like you can't stand SEC winning.. your "10 teams" had 6 years.. oh yea I forgot.. it's all because ESPN.. I don't have to watch ESPN to know SEC by far is and will always be the best conference.. Dominant Defenses can stop Dominant Offenses. Even if your " 10 teams" has an explosive offense.. they probably have the crappiest Defense.. Try gettin Trent Richardson down"

      "Boom goes the Dynomite!!!!!!!!!

    the SEC wins because they play defense, the other conferences don't , look at the NFL draft this year and in past years, i is dominated by the SEC, I'm an ACC man but the facts are SEC rules when we talk football

  5. Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to this
    website before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyways, I’m definitely delighted I found
    it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back often!
