Just when the post-season college football picture was looking so simple ...
Texas A&M's 29-24 victory over No. 1 Alabama on Saturday in Tuscaloosa will have a pronounced effect on both the SEC and national college football scenes.
However, one part of the SEC title game picture was cleared up Saturday. Georgia clinched the SEC East title with a 38-0 rout of Auburn. The Bulldogs will be in the SEC title game on Dec. 1 in Atlanta.
-- How do you think the SEC and BCS situations will shake out? Tell us in the comments below.
The Bulldogs' opponent remains to be seen. Alabama's loss Saturday means the Tide still must beat Auburn on Nov. 24 to punch their ticket to Atlanta.
Also, the Bowl Championship Series rankings will be in for a shakeup. Alabama will fall from the top spot, with unbeaten Kansas State (10-0) likely to move up from No. 2.
And that is not a good omen for the SEC, which has won the last six BCS titles. Even though Georgia could move up in the BCS standings, the SEC could get shut out of the BCS title game because of Saturday's events.
But there still is some regular season left. Stay tuned.
