I think they deserve it if Oregon deserved it prior to Saturday. The American is actually better than the Pac-12 this year. No hyperbole. Look at what the Pac-12 did in the non-conference. Embarrassing. I think UC is as good as everyone not named Georgia or Ohio State, so why not. Let UC have their day in the sun playing Ohio State or Georgia on NYE.

Granted, I may be a bit biased by the $10 I have on UC at 80-1 to win the national championship.
