    The race to the national championship game has been well defined.

    No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Florida State are in control. No. 3 Ohio State and No. 4 Baylor are on deck. There is a group of 1-loss teams crossing their fingers and hoping for chaos.

    Then there are the conference races, where there is still plenty of sorting out to do.

    American Athletic Conference -ù Simple. Only a major collapse could keep UCF out of the BCS as the American's representative and conference champ.

    Atlantic Coast Conference -ù Florida State has already locked down the Atlantic Division spot in the championship Dec. 7 in Charlotte, N.C. The Coastal is messy with four teams with two losses but could be become far less cluttered if Georgia Tech loses to Clemson tonight and if Duke beats No. 24 Miami on Saturday. That would give Duke a clear path to its first ACC title game by winning out. A Hurricanes win puts Virginia Tech in the driver's seat.

    Big Ten -ù Not one, but two huge upsets would be necessary to keep Ohio State out of the conference title game as the Leaders division champ. And No. 14. Michigan State would be in great shape in the Legends division by beating Nebraska on Saturday.

    Big 12 -ù No. 4 Baylor (5-0), No. 12 Oklahoma State (5-1) and No. 23 Texas (6-0) have yet to play each other. The sorting out starts this week when the Cowboys play at the Longhorns.

    Pac-12 -ù The North Division is Stanford's if it can win out but one slip gets Oregon back in the hunt. Over in the South, No. 21 Arizona State at No. 13 UCLA next week could decide it, but Southern California still has a chance to work its way back in the mix by upsetting Stanford on Saturday.

    Southeastern Conference -ù Alabama-Auburn will decide the West, if both get through this weekend. In the East, Missouri is in control if it wins out but a slip or two by the Tigers could put South Carolina and Georgia back in play.

    In conferences without an automatic BCS bid:

    Mid-American Conference -ù No. 20 Northern Illinois' game against Ball State could give the West to the Cardinals. The Huskies would still have to contend with Toledo if they win. Bowling Green-Buffalo on Nov. 29 will decide the East.

    Conference USA -ù North Texas can lock up the West Division this week by beating Texas-San Antonio. The East could come down to the regular season-finale between Marshall and East Carolina.

    Mountain West -ù No. 16 Fresno State can lose one of its final two games and still win the West. Boise State and Utah State are in a tight race in the Mountain division but the Broncos hold the tie-breaker.

    Sun Belt -ù Louisiana-Lafayette has a 1-game lead on Arkansas State, a win in the bank over the Red Wolves and still play two of the league's worst teams (Georgia State and South Alabama). The Ragin' Cajuns are cooking.

    The picks:

    I had the opportunity to reflect on those memories and create some new ones after seeing Van Wert Civic Theatre-Æs production of a superhero play called -ôInsane with Power-ö by Scott Haan.

    I really liked what the players did Tuesday night in honoring legendary New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera at the Major League Baseball All-Star Game.

    They allowed him his moment in the sun on the field to begin the eighth inning, with not another soul on the field as he trotted in from the bullpen for his swan song.

    He admitted that it nearly brought him to tears.

    I admit, I am no New York Evil Empire -à er, Yankee -à fan but that got to me.
