I just think if three teams are in the SEC, the reason is SEC bias. What makes them better than the one-loss teams in other conferences?
As was already pointed out...quality wins?!?
Ole Miss had Alabama which the committee felt was more impressive than Oregon over Michigan St. Both of those are more impressive than Auburn over Kansas State...BUT
Auburn//Ole Miss losses are "better" than Oregon to Arizona at home.
But the whole "SEC Bias" will solve itself...
Ole Miss still plays MsState//Auburn
Alabama still plays Auburn//MsState
So the SEC teams in the "top 6" each play each other twice....
