BATON ROUGE, La. -- If things had lined up for LSU on Saturday, the Tigers could have finished the day as the SEC West champion, with a berth in the SEC title game and possibly even a shot at the BCS championship game, or at least a BCS bowl.

It was a longshot, but possible.

By the end of the day, not only had it not worked out, but nothing 10-2 LSU needed in a laundry list of upsets transpired. Alabama (11-1) took care of arch-rival Auburn to claim the West and punch its ticket to Atlanta to face Georgia (11-1) for the right to advance to Miami for the BCS title game. Florida (11-1) beat Florida State to all but clinch the second SEC BCS bowl bid (the Sugar Bowl). Texas A&M (10-2) beat Missouri, and South Carolina (10-2) beat Clemson, leaving them with the same record as the Tigers.
