BCS Championship Game Auburn vs. Oregon: The Prediction

Normally it is a no brainer.

If the SEC is in a BCS Championship game it is a lock they will win.  Auburn is trying to win the 5th straight for the conference.  It is clear they have the best player in Cameron Newton and they have been battle tested.

As I was driving my daughter to school this morning, I was all ready to lock in Auburn in as the pick, when Mike Golic of ESPN Radio said something interesting.

They were talking about Cameron Newton and throwing out a lot of hyperbole like him being better than Vince Young in college (that isn’t true) and that was the reason Mike Greenberg picked Auburn.

Golic then said and I am paraphrasing:

“When a team is so dependent on one player if that player has an off night, they won’t be able to recovered.”

Then the “Football Gods” text me and assured me that all Cameron Newton’s and his pops shady dealings will not be ignored, just like Spygate.

Cameron Newton has handle the distractions and had one of the greatest seasons in college football, but in the end the better team will beat the better player.

Oregon 35

  1. That's a bold prediction. I predict Auburn will win 41-35. The Auburn defense has been shaky for many quarters this year, but has always been able to come up with a big stop or two or a turnover or two when they've needed it. If Nick Fairley can get a hold of anybody he will make an impact although Oregon's skill players may be too fast for him. I think whichever team forces more turnovers will win.

  2. I like your prediction! I think Oregon has more offensive weapons and Oregon's QB ain't too shabby himself. I think Chip Kelly learned from last year's loss to Ohio State and will be more aggressive this year.
