Northern Football doing OK...

Beyond the ESPN-driven trope that the SEC West was the best division in football history-- now disproven after bowl losses by Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Miss. St. and Ole Miss-- is the longer-running idea that northern schools can't compete with the south.  That idea has been challenged by the bowl results this year in the big games between northern and southern schools (keeping in mind that many games, like TCU/Ole Miss were intra-regional):

Ohio State > Alabama
Oregon > Florida State
Michigan State > Baylor
Wisconsin > Auburn
Notre Dame > LSU

Is it an aberration or a trend?
