    So it's finally here.

    I hope for a great game. I will be pulling for the SEC in this one to keep the streak alive as well as finishing off the BCS era with 8 straight champions.

    Can FSU come up with a defensive game plan to slow down this running game of Auburn? They have not had to deal with this kind of chaos all year long. It's been a pretty easy ride for their defense. They will certainly be tested in this one.

    On the flip side, the mismatch nightmare of the big physical FSU wideouts vs the smallish Auburn corners. I just can't see FSU's passing game being slowed down. This could easily be a 400 yard, 5 TD night for Winston. Can the rush get to Winston and cause him to be just inaccurate enough to force some punts and hopefully a couple of turnovers.

    I see this going one of two ways. This is either a blowout by FSU and a snoozefest come the 4th quarter, or we're going down to the last drive and I do believe if Auburn sticks around til the end that Jameis Winston will succumb to the pressure of the moment and throw a game ending interception.

    What say you?

    FSU handily. Besides, cant say Im too keen on that state sitting on a 5th BCSC.

    I think the barn takes this one... their defense will show up and FSU won't be able to stop the run.

    While I would love for the SEC to take another title (hard to say that because it involves chop block U), I think FSU beats AU like a drum.

    I do not know if Auburn will even score , but I hope they do, 45 to 60 points . Winston has not been tested by the teams FSU has played . So it is time for him after being named the best to have a bad game . if that happens Auburn should win by 3 td's , if not gonna look bad for the SEC . Winston has to have the "Can't get me , can't get to me " mind set .

    I think it will be a good game, can't see either defense stopping the O's but I do agree that FSU has the potential to clobber AU as they don't make mistakes. Jameis has been sensational so he'll be hard to stop and likely won't make mistakes. But sometimes these games go the opposite direction so we never know for sure.

    just dont see Auburn getting it done. We can say Winston all day, but FSU actually has a defense.

    I expect FSU to win. They're the better team.

    I think Auburn got hot and all that momentum is gone. Having said that, I expect Auburn to have a hard time moving the ball. FSU has had over a month to prepare.

    So unless FSU turns the ball over 3 times, they win going away.

    FSU has the advantage in that it's had over a month to prepare for AU rushing attack. Something Missouri and Alabama didn't have.
