BCS National Championship Game Preview

By on January 7th, 2014

The Florida State Seminoles will be facing off against the Auburn Tigers in the last BCS national title game in Pasadena at the Rose Bowl.

FSU is ranked number one in the country in offense averaging a staggering 53 points a game with a 41.5-point margin of victory. The Seminoles have a trio of impressive wide receivers, Rashad Greene, Kelvin Benjamin and Kenny Shaw.

“They have been machine like on offense, they run it well, they throw it well. You know they got NFL wide receivers that put people in one on one situations,” said Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn.

The Seminoles are led of course by Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston at quarterback.

“He’s been laser focused; he really has, in his mental and physical preparation this week. He’s been accurate with the ball great decisions, very decisive and everything in practice, he’s been very good,” Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher said.

The Tigers are led by Nick Marshall, a first year quarterback who has also had an impressive season. Marshall led four comebacks for the Tigers in the fourth quarter against Texas A&M, Mississippi State, Georgia and Alabama. He also had 19 touchdowns during Auburn’s nine-game win streak.

The Tigers special teams have also been able to excel this season. Senior punter Steven Clark averages 42.5 yards per punt with 21 inside the opponents’ 20-yard line. Only five of Clark’s 50 punts have been returned this season. Tiger’s kicker Cody Parkey is 14-for-19 on field goals and leads FBS players with 67 touchbacks.

If Auburn wins it will be eight straight BCS titles for the SEC.
