ATLANTA -- If you're an Oklahoma State fan, then you'll wake up Sunday feeling good about your BCS championship hopes, and rightfully so.
If you're a Stanford fan, then you'll wake up Sunday feeling good about beating your second biggest rival, even if the Cardinal's 16th consecutive victory revealed some heretofore unseen flaws that won't help your team in the BCS beauty contest.
And if you're a Clemson fan, then you'll wake up Sunday no longer concerned about the BCS at all.
Three national championship contenders who don't play in the Southeastern Conference had similar challenges Saturday. No. 3 Oklahoma State, No. 5 Clemson and No. 6 Stanford all had to play good, if not quite elite quality, conference opponents. Baylor, Georgia Tech
