Which "champion" do you think is better?

USC may be the better team - we'll never know. But based on their schedules, I give LSU the edge. LSU had 4 wins over ranked opponents - #11 Georgia, #18 Mississippi, #11 Georgia (again), and #3 Oklahoma. Beating the same team twice in one season is tough, particularly when they're ranked as high as #11. And LSU's loss was to #17 Florida; a team they should have beat, but a ranked team nonetheless.
USC, on the other hand, beat 2 ranked teams: #14 Washington State and #4 Michigan. Their loss was to unranked California. The Rose Bowl was obviously a great win but I consider Oklahoma to be head and shoulders above Michigan and LSU's Sugar Bowl win was better. USC beat up on a lot of cupcakes - much more than LSU did.
It woulda been so sweet if there was a USC/LSU game, it'd be great and USC might win it. But based on what is given to use, LSU is #1
