|FLORIDA STATE SEMINOLES||AUBURN TIGERS|
More times than not in the BCS era, fans of teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference have had to endure chants of “SEC! SEC! SEC!” while walking out of football stadiums across the south and east. Teams from the Southeastern Conference have earned that –- winning seven national championships in a row.
Auburn will win the 2014 BCS championship because its running game will prove to be too much for Florida State, despite what the Seminoles’ gaudy offensive and defensive stats may lead many to believe.
Offensively, the Tigers’ playbook is a pamphlet – a handful of plays with a handful of options. Gus Malzahn isn’t coaching rocket scientists; he’s running an offense designed to put his players in the best possible position to succeed. The scheme is so basic, so simple that it dares opposing defenses to load the box –- and Florida State will fall into that trap.
