Conference champs don't get the top 5 seeds, they just get in

Top team gets the number one seed

let's say that an 11 - 1 Bama misses the playoffs, their only loss being to an 11 - 1 Auburn

Auburn's only loss is to a 10 - 2 Georgia

In that scenario - UGA & Aubbie play a rematch for the SEC Championship and bama, misses the game but MIGHT be the number one seed in the playoffs

IMO that would have happened in the 2011 season had UGA beaten LSU in the SECCG. Bama was already #2 in the BCS and would have risen to #1 with the LSU loss. Everyone says that LSU would have fallen to #3, but if Bama is in, HTH are you going to have the 11-1 loser of Bama-LSU in and leave the 12-1 winner of Bama- LSU out? No way in hell!

And in that case, all 3 would have gone to NO. UGA in the Sugar Bowl and Bama-LSU in the NCG. Two non-champions from the same conference  in their NCG was their ONLY exception to the maximum of two BCS teams from one conference. UGA as SEC Champion would have been in the Sugar Bowl.
