    Let's just say that LSU beats Bama. Then say OM beats LSU. If none of the three lose other than this, who goes to the SECCG?

    Bama beat OM
    LSU beat Bama
    OM beat LSU

    They would all three have one western division loss. Who goes? Not busting chops...I don't know. I guess you would call it tri-champions.

    That would leave OM at 10-2.
    LSU would be at 10-2.
    Bama would be at 11-1.

    Would they give the invite to the highest ranked team? Could get interesting.:huh:

    Highest BCS and that would be Bama more than likely, thats only if all 3 were at one loss though.

    Division record is part of the tie-breaker. In your scenario, Alabama would be the only 1-loss team, so they go over the 2-loss teams.

    Off the top of my wittle head. I think the team that has NOT been to the SECCG more recently then the others is the one that goes. Since Bama was last year & LSU in 2007, OM goes. Plus OM has never been to the SECCG, sorry just had to add that.

    The chances of a true 3-way tie went out the window with Bama's win over Tennessee.

    They've now won all of their SEC East games, which means that they'd have the worst SEC West record in the event of a 3-way tie.

    If Ole Miss beat everybody but Bama I'd go to Atlanta and I'd ride on the back of one of those flying pigs to get there. :hihi:

    This is not a 3-way tie scenario the way its presented. The first deciding factor in determining the division champ is overall conference record. As presented, Bama would be 7-1, LSU and OM would be 6-2. Bama is champs (I hate saying that, even hypothetically) :geauxtige
