If this were a wedding, top-ranked Miami would have been left at the altar three times.

First it was Nebraska, then Florida and finally Tennessee. The second-ranked Volunteers were stunned 31-20 by inspired LSU in the SEC title game Saturday night at Atlanta.

Tennessee blew a 17-7 first half lead and is now out of the national championship picture. Miami will face Nebraska for the NCAA title in the Rose Bowl. The Cornhuskers edged Colorado is the BCS voting by .05. Oregon finished fourth in Sunday's final vote.

LSU will play in the Sugar Bowl as the SEC champion.
