BCS Breakdown: Which Team Is Better?
Here we are, the Grandaddy of them all, the VIZIO BCS National Championship takes place tonight in Pasadena. Who should win and why? Check it out here.
First off, both of these teams have what it takes to steal a championship from the other, but the level of discipline between these two teams is somewhat different, and I think that's what sets this championship apart.
Top-ranked Florida State has carried themselves well all year under ringleader Jimbo Fisher, even through the Jameis Winston madness. Florida State boasts a raw, physical defense and an explosive offense that minced through the ACC throughout the season.
#2 Auburn has the best running game in the country, a stonewall defense and a very physical mindset under first-year coach Gus Malzhan.
As stated earlier, discipline is what sets these teams apart, and in my opinion, Florida State holds the most discipline over Auburn. Auburn has squeaked out with a couple key wins with absolutely monumental plays that will stand the test of time, but Florida State's never been in a position to have to do that this season. In fact, the smallest margin of victory for Florida State this year is 14 points. I think Florida State has more tools to get the job done this evening, period.
Prediction: Florida State 31 - Auburn 23
