BCS National Championship - Auburn Tigers vs. Oregon Ducks
Tonight is the BCS National Championship game, where the Auburn Tigers will meet the Oregon Ducks. For those who don't follow sports - we're talking about college football.
The DH and I love college football. Some of you might remember that I'm a season ticket holder for UA football (The University Of Alabama) and attend every home game in Tuscaloosa, AL. I also love to attend "away" games and have watched my beloved team play in other locales such as Columbia, SC; Pasadena, CA; New Orleans, LA; Jacksonville, FL; Birmingham, AL; Jackson, MS; and Knoxville, TN.
Alabama and Auburn are "in-state rivals", but that really makes it sound pretty calm and slightly civilized. HAHA. Most people around here either love Alabama or they love Auburn - and they pull for whichever team the other one is playing on any given Saturday.
Last year, Alabama beat the Texas Longhorns in the BCS Championship to win their first national championship since 1992. Our star running back, Mark Ingram, also won the Heisman Trophy. It was a grand year!
This year, Auburn has the chance to win the BCS Championship. Their star quarterback, Cameron Newton, has already won the 2010 Heisman Trophy. All they have to do is beat Oregon tonight.
What are the chances of one state producing the Heisman Trophy and BCS National Champions in back-to-back years?
Do you enjoy college football? Who is your favorite team, and who are you pulling for tonight? Doesn't really matter to me - my team isn't playing! Good luck to Auburn and Oregon, may the best team win!
