Ironically, it takes a season where the only two undefeated teams will play for the national title to really make the case for a college football playoff. Miami's increasingly inconsistent defensive play allowed the Hokies to remain within striking distance, but a big play offense and a record game for Heisman candidate Willis McGahee paced the Hurricanes to a 56-45 win. The most impressive winner of the day may have been Georgia, an easy 30-3 winner over Arkansas in the SEC Championship. The Bulldogs will likely play USC in the Sugar Bowl, a game that frankly features two teams that are right now superior to the ones in the Fiesta Bowl.
