Yesterday’s action yielded some surprising results, which effectively shook up the BCS bowl mix. SEC Champion Auburn will move past the Ohio State Buckeyes, who fell to Michigan State in the Big Ten Championship, in the BCS standings and play opposite No. 1 Florida State in the BCS National Championship Game. The Seminoles secured their spot in the January 6th title game with their 45-7 destruction of Duke in last night’s ACC Championship Game. With the Tigers presence in the game now a certainty, the odds makers have released their Auburn vs FSU Point Spread 2014 BCS National Championship Game Odds. Jimbo Fisher’s squad opened as a -9.5 college football odds favorite to win the national championship while the game total is set at 65 points.
Ohio State had a lot to worry about going into yesterday’s meeting with Michigan State and, unfortunately for the Buckeyes, their biggest nightmare came true. A loss to the Spartans bumped them from a national championship game appearance. The setback probably caused them to avoid even more misery, though, as they would have been a certain underdog and probable loser to the mighty Seminoles.
Auburn now gets an opportunity to show what it can do against Florida State, but it too will be performing as an underdog. This much is true, though; Gus Malzhan’s Tigers will be the best team Jameis Winston and company have faced all season. The Tigers ran rough shod over a Missouri team that had played good rush defense all season, and they have more than enough talent both along the line and in the backfield to test FSU’s vaunted defense.
So while the BCS National Championship match-up is not what most envisioned heading into yesterday’s action, the shake up should result in a more competitive national title game.
