It’s Official, Florida State Seminoles and Auburn Tigers will Battle for Final BCS National Championship
The BCS 2013 National Championship Game … The Tomahawk chop vs. War Eagle!
Tonight we had it confirmed what we all pretty much knew after yesterday’s convincing win by Auburn over Missouri in the SEC Championship game and the predictable win by the Michigan State Spartans over the over-rated and fraud #2 rated Ohio State Buckeyes in the Big Ten Championship game … The Florida State Seminoles will play the #2 Auburn Tigers will play each other in the final BCS Championship Game in the Rose Bowl on January 6, 2014.
Auburn outscoring Missouri 59-42 in the SEC Championship Game and ran for an amazing 545 yards on route to their win. Then later that night, Sparty proved what many knew, except for the AP and USA Today pollsters, that the Ohio St. Buckeyes were an unproven joke and an over-rated football team that had literally played no body, in a weak Big Ten conference. Michigan State scored the first 17, gave up the next 24 and then scored the final 17, in a going away victory 34-24. The sad reality is, that if Ohio St. had actually come back and found a way to win this game ugly by 1 or 2 points, the pollsters would have most likely made them #2 because some how going undefeated against inferior teams and barely eking out wins against down teams in the Big Ten is more impressive than a team winning the championship of the best conference in the land and beating the #1 two-time defending champion Alabama Crimson Tide, #5 Missouri, #7 Texas A&M, # 24 Ole Miss, #25 Georgia and had just one loss to the #6 LSU Tigers in Baton Rouge.
For Florida State it was a cake walk as predicted for the #1 Seminoles as they crushed Duke in the ACC Championship game, 45-7. The Seminoles have won this year by an insane average of 42 points per game. However, does that tell us about FSU, or more about the lack of talent that they played in a weak ACC?
After weeks of conjecture and debate about strength of schedule, the matchup for the VIZIO BCS National Championship turned out to be an obvious one.
No. 1 Florida State and No. 2 Auburn top the final BCS standings and will play for the national title Jan. 6 in Pasadena, Calif.
The regular season had set up the possibility for a controversial BCS title game with one-loss Auburn on the outside looking in at unbeaten but less-tested Florida State and Ohio State, but Michigan State took the Buckeyes out of the conversation by winning the Big Ten Championship Game on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Auburn moved up to the second spot in the standings by outscoring Missouri 59-42 in the SEC Championship Game.
Now the title game is set: Florida State, the nation’s only undefeated team, will face 12-1 Auburn, champion of the conference that has won the past seven national championships.
In the end, there can be only one, and for all of the criticism and controversy created by the BCS … this year they got it right and the two best teams and the two hottest teams at year’s end are playing for the crystal.
