War Eagle, everybody! After a month-long wait, it’s once again Auburn Football time! Tonight, the Auburn Tigers take on the Florida State Seminoles in the BCS National Title Game. The tilt with the number one ranked Seminoles will kick off approximately 7:30 PM Central Time, on ESPN. The winner of this game will take home the mythical national college football title. Auburn has a chance to make college football history, tonight. No team in the history of division one football has EVER beaten two number-one-ranked teams in a single season. Auburn already has one such victory this season, knocking off top-ranked Alabama in the Iron Bowl.
The weather is pretty delightful in Southern California today. It’s currently sunny and 72 degrees at lunchtime. The temperature for the kickoff will likely be in the upper 60s, falling to about 50 degrees near the end of the game. Skies will remain clear for this one with low humidity, around 20 percent. Those attending the game will have a great view of a waxing half-moon tonight, high above the Rose Bowl.
Tonight, the Tigers must continue their bulldozing ways on the ground, and generate some havoc for freshman Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Jameis Winston. Both defenses may have their hands full this game. Florida State’s undersized defense will have to deal with a crushing Auburn blocking offense, while Auburn’s suspect secondary will be tested by a full complement of FSU receivers that will be playing on Sunday in the future.
As always, feel free to participate in this thread. We’ll be in during the day at times, and at the keyboard for a live play by play. This is it, folks! This is the final BCS national title game! The Tigers must lay it on the line for all the marbles, tonight! War Eagle! Let’s beat those Seminoles!
