Florida State to meet Auburn in BCS Title game

Next Story

Florida State will meet Auburn for the National Championship after the two teams were confirmed as numbers one and two in the BCS Rankings on Sunday night.

Few could argue with the decision, with the undefeated Seminoles (13-0) taking on the Tigers (12-1) after their fantastic run to the SEC title.

The meeting between the two, at the Rose Bowl on January 6th, will be the last in the current BCS format, with a four-team playoff set to replace it from next year.

"We all complain about the BCS, but isn't it funny how often they get it right," reflected Jimbo Fisher, Florida State coach, on the much-maligned system.

Nobody could argue with Florida State making the New Year showdown, with Jameis Winston the runaway favourite to win the Heisman Trophy this season.

His latest impressive outing came in the 45-7 thrashing of Duke in the ACC Championship game, with the quarterback looking unstoppable once again.

Auburn, meanwhile, have been one of the favourites to join them since their epic victory over Alabama a fortnight ago, and the 59-42 victory over Missouri on Saturday booked their place in the fixture after Ohio State lost to Michigan State in the Big Ten showpiece.

In the other Bowl games, Alabama will play Oklahoma (Sugar Bowl), Michigan State meet Stanford (Rose Bowl), Baylor face UCF (Fiesta Bowl) and Clemson go head-to-head with Ohio State (Orange Bowl).
