    I don't think it will be all that close either : 38- 24.
    SEC -8 in a row!!! And I'm sure all the SEC fans will be humble and low key about it as always i may have lost my d#$n mind!

    Has the underdog every BCS game so far? If so I guess it'll be Auburn.

    I don’t do predictions, but I’ll try here so we can all laugh about it.

    With a potential 8th National Championship in a row from this conference,
    and a 5th in a Row from the State of Alabama,
    It's sort of hard to pick against that.

    Plus, the argument is NOTHING different than we've heard before.
    Opponent THIS, Opponent THAT, how will (Enter SEC Team Here) be able to handle THIS or THAT.

    Yet for 7 years now,
    the same result is left on the scoreboard.

    Every year it seems, everything people were wondering about, never really happens.

    Going by Auburns last National Championship,
    they had something like the 56th Ranked Defense vs the #1 Offense in Oregon.
    Yet Oregon scored only 19 points. 8 of those points within the final minutes of the game.

    So who close to Auburn has FSU seen?
    There is none. The closest thing to Auburn FSU has seen is Boston College, who put 34 on FSU.

    Who close to FSU has Auburn seen?
    Georgia? Alabama? Mizzou? LSU?

    With Auburn sporting the 84th Ranked Defense,
    I feel like it would be a travesty for them to Win with that trash.

    But sporting the #1 Rushing Offense is HARD to deal with.

    When a team can put you on the side-line for 4-6 minutes at a time,
    and force you to watch. That's brutal. Especially in close games into the 4th Qtr. Give them the ball back with 5 minutes left and you may not see it again, regardless of your timeouts. That creates all sorts of pressure. Plus even if they don’t score, their Punter is ‘Next Level’ and their Special Teams players are FAST. Look for FSU to be starting within their 10 yard line frequently.


    Why? b/c Auburn doesn’t score every possession, and they don’t care,
    but they do eat clock and they punt REALLY well and play the field position game to a T. It’s all in the game plan for them to get to the 35-45, punt to the endzone and get you to punt back to the 50 where they’ll put their best play calling up.

    In their only loss to LSU, they STILL had more Time of Possession than LSU.
    Only by a minute or so, but you would think that a 35-21 game would mean you couldn’t keep the ball
    and the TOP would be lop-sided.

    That wasn’t the case. They just had turnovers that killed them.

    Since then, they’ve clamped down on turnovers
    and have become very efficient at this Run Game they’re doing.
    They score faster, only b/c they want to. They could slow it down too if they need to.

    However, even if in the ACC, FSU is sporting the #5 Total Offense, w/ #3 Total Defense,
    Against Auburns 102nd Ranked Passing Defense?! and 62nd Ranked Rush Defense!?

    No stinking way, Auburn should win this game.

    But Auburn got ...that...magic! People love to say, that luck/magic is gunna run out.
    Yea, ok. I’ve seen teams in other sports get ‘That magic’ and ride it all theway to a Title!
    It just happens sometimes.


    Buuuuut….I think something will happen tonight that hasn't happen all year.
    Mental pressure on Winston. I think he is more susceptible to it than Marshall.

    I think the Pressure gets to him tonight and he throws 2 INT's
    that his Defense won’t be able to bail him out of this time. Like the previous 2 games.


    This game smells like a shoot-out, but yet, that just never seems to happen when we call it.

    So I'm going; 28-26 FSU

    I would be thrilled if both teams fooled everybody and the game was a low scoring defensive slugfest, not likely though.

    However, I want be upset if Auburn wins, b/c some how in my Office Bowl Mania
    it has come down to THIS game between me and a co-worker.

    I have FSU with 2 points, he has FSU with 35 points.
    I'm (22-12) w/ 381 points.
    He's (22-12) w/ 370 points.

    So If FSU wins, he'll win with 405 total points.
    If Auburn wins, we both lose, but I'm ahead in points won.

    Actually, VERY likely. It happens more frequently than not.

    But this isn't your ordinary SEC Team in Auburn. You know that. Not with that horrendous defense.
    This is why I questioned whether or not that could beat Oregon. Yet, they did.
    But this years defense is HORRIBLE, more so than the 2010 Team.


    ...sigh...man you if we could predict what would happen, we'd be rich.

    Final Thoughts;

    If Auburn wins this game in a non-shootout, just how overrated was FSU?

    IMO, FSU should win this game, and cover the spread.

    I just cannot, nor do I really think, that Auburn should be able to be,
    the College Football National Champions, with a Defense like that.

    But, just like the NFL Play-offs. Once the seasons over, Stats and Recordsdon't matter.

    Guess we'll see soon.

    I picked Free Shoes U in this one & for good reason. They're the better team. It doesn't matter how you slice it, they're the more complete team. It's just not a good matchup for AU.
