I’ll be the first to admit, I prefer the NFL to college football. Mostly because college football fans annoy me, although the NFL has it’s share of knucklehead fan bases (see Eagles, Philadelphia). However, I can get as charged up as any face-painting, beer guzzling college fan for a national championship game. Five years ago Texas and USC played one of the best football games in recorded history (mostly because 75% of the two-deeps in that game were future NFL players). Fast forward five years later and Oregon/Auburn have a lot of similarities to USC/Texas. Both teams have a ton of NFL talent and can score in bunches. My gut tells me this game will play out similar to USC/Texas. Oregon will dominate for three and a half quarters, but Cam Newton will take over the end of the game and lead Auburn to a winning score like he has done so many times this season.
Enjoy the game!
