SEC -- Missouri vs. Auburn
If you claim to have predicted before the season started that it would be Auburn vs. Missouri in the SEC championship game, you either love tigers and hate LSU, or you're trying to be funny. Because this game, in the land of Alabama and Georgia and South Carolina, came out of nowhere. But it's here, and it could send a team to the BCS National Championship, if all things fall just right.

CFB: (5) Missouri vs. (21) S. Carolina
Everything has been breaking right for Missouri. A perfect 7-0 record and back-to-back wins over slumping Florida and Georgia teams have the Tigers sitting pretty in the SEC East. Two ranked teams remain on the schedule, starting with Steve Spurrier's South Carolina team that is coming off a disappointing loss to Tennessee. Do you believe in the Tigers, or are they simply benefiting from good timing? Should they meet Alabama in the SEC championship game, could they hold their own?
