2008 Settle It On The Field College Football Champs

2008 College Football Bowl Playoffs

2008 Undisputed National Champions of College Football

Let's go back and take a look at the 2008 college football season. It ended with the Florida Gators beating Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl for the national title game. But at the end of the regular season there were seven teams with one loss and two undefeated teams. Alabama lose until it got to the SEC Title Game to one loss Florida. In the Big 12 Texas beat Oklahoma, Oklahoma beat Texas Tech and Texas Tech beat Texas. All three teams finished the regular season with just one loss but Oklahoma went to the Big 12 Title Game beating Missouri. USC lost to Oregon State on the road in week 3 but still won the Pac 10 finishing the season with one loss. Also Penn State won the Big Ten that year but loss one game in the regular season to Iowa in week 10. Utah went undefeated in 2008 winning the Mountain West and Boise State went undefeated winning the WAC. Also East Carolina winners of C-USA beat ACC champion Virginia Tech in week 1. But Florida and Oklahoma were chose to play in the national title game. So here is how the 2008 season should have ended if college football had a playoff system.
