Finally, we get to the BCS National Championship between the Auburn Tigers and Oregon Ducks on January 10th.
This game features two of the best statistical offenses in college football, as well as two very underrated defenses.
Auburn has already won 13 games this season, including victories over ranked teams South Carolina, Arkansas, LSU, Alabama and South Carolina again. The offense is led by Heisman winner Cameron Newton, who is one of the most dynamic offensive threats of recent years in college football.
Newton leads the team in both passing and rushing with 48 total touchdowns. Auburn is the fourth ranked offense in college football, mostly through production from Newton.
Defensively, the Tigers allow 24.5 points per game, but do have some playmakers such as defensive tackle Nick Fairley, who projects as a top 10 pick in the 2011 NFL draft.
Oregon, technically the second ranked team in the country behind Auburn, boasts the best offense in college football, averaging an unbelievable 49.3 points per game.
The Ducks are led by super sophomore LaMichael James, who was a Heisman candidate as well. James led the Ducks with 1682 rushing yards and 21 rushing touchdowns this season.
However, the Ducks seem to have a more balanced attack, with more playmakers than the Tigers. Darron Thomas and Kenjon Barner, as well as Jeff Maehl provide supplemental roles in an offense that seems unstoppable at times.
Defensively, Oregon is also a talented squad, allowing just 18.4 points per game.
Prediction: Oregon 41, Auburn 38
