It has been 36 days since Oregon and Auburn last played a game. In case you forgot, Oregon's previous game was a 37-20 victory over Oregon State in the annual Civil War game. Meanwhile, Auburn was last seen dismantling South Carolina 56-17 in the SEC Championship game.
Tonight the long, agonizing wait finally ends as those two teams meet in Arizona to decide the BCS Championship. These two teams feature two of the most dynamic offenses in the country. Oregon finished first in the nation in scoring offense, averaging over 49 points per game.
Auburn, led by Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Cam Newton, finished fifth in scoring offense with almost 43 points per game.
The build up to the game has been fantastic. We know both teams' strengths and weaknesses. We know what each team has to do in order to be successful in this game. Now the time for talk is done. There is no more analysis or breakdown that can be done. All that is left is to play the game and decide who is the best team in the country.
Will it be Oregon with its high-energy, high-octane, quick-strike offense that had 24 touchdown drives that lasted two minutes or less?
Will it be Auburn with its big play quarterback, bullying defense and ability to thrive under pressure?
We have all the latest and most comprehensive news before tonight's BCS Championship game.
