Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has all the hype going into tonight’s BCS Championship game. It started with his Heisman Trophy campaign and continued at one of the most outspoken BCS Championship Game media days in memory. Yet for all that FSU attention, it could be an impressive Auburn Tigers team that steals the show when you watch the BCS Championship game on ESPN tonight from the Rose Bowl. If you’re not near a TV to watch the BCS game, you can see it unfold via the Web, iPad or tablet if you watch BCS Championship online Auburn vs Florida State free live streaming using the links below.
The SEC has won the past seven BCS National Championship games, which certainly bodes well for Auburn. Three other factors play a role. First is Auburn’s performance in the red zone this season. The Auburn Tigers this season scored on 51 of 57 trips inside the 20-yard line, scoring 42 touchdowns and nine field goals. Against a Florida State defense that only allowed more than two touchdowns in a single game all year, Auburn’s red-zone offense could be vital.
Auburn also has won close games, which many BCS Championship games end up being. According to ESPN Stats & Information, Auburn won half of its 12 victories this season by eight points or fewer, they’re 6-0 this season in one-possession games and have a 17-3 record in such games during the past four years, tops among FBS teams.
Third, when you watch BCS Championship online Auburn vs Florida State free live streaming you’ll see the best rushing game in the nation. And no, that’s not Winston-like hype. The Auburn Tigers lead all FBS teams in rushing with 335.7 yards per game, and they’re the only FBS team with four 600-yard runners. The Tigers ran for 323 yards against Georgia, 296 against Alabama and 545 in a 59-42 rout of then-No. 5 Missouri in the SEC championship game.
Still, Auburn is facing a Florida State Seminoles team that’s unlike any it’s faced this season. FSU quarterback Jameis Winston would love to celebrate his 20th birthday with a win in tonight’s BCS Championship game, and he’s had a season that would seem to grant that wish. His Heisman-winning freshman season included a resume that includes passing for 3,820 yards and 38 touchdowns, a better completion percentage on third down (.681) than on first down (.656), and an even better percentage than either of those when facing more than 10 yards on third down (.762). No wonder FSU leans on him so much.
And remember that stat about the Auburn Tigers in the red zone? Well, FSU redshirt freshman kicker Roberto Aguayo made all 90 PATs and 19-of-20 field goals this season, including 8-of-9 of 40 yards or longer. Aguayo won the Lou Groza Award, given to the nation’s best kicker. So while Auburn has close game experience, FSU can’t be discounted.
