Let's face it. In a year where one cannot safely predict anything, there seems to be two shining lights at the end of the tunnel: the Auburn Tigers and the Oregon Ducks.
Coming into Saturday's action, Auburn was ranked No. 1 in the country for many reasons we simply cannot put into words. Their speed, over everything else, is the main reason why the Tigers have dominated so many fellow SEC opponents.
Meanwhile, the Oregon Ducks (the nation's highest-scoring offense, I might add) traveled to Southern California to try and dethrone the Trojans of USC once and for all from the Pac-10 ranks.
It's clear these two teams are the cream of the crop this season, and may eventually end up playing each other when it's all said and done.
For now, as we try to break down which of these teams is the true superior, we must take an in-depth look at the numbers, matchups and breakdowns of past games. Only then will we truly know who is the "best of the best."
Who do you think No. 1 is?
