BCS Championship Game
Before the Bowl Championship Series is replaced next year by a playoff, No. 1 Florida State and No. 2 Auburn will meet in its last title game Monday night at the Rose Bowl.
Cam Newton left nothing to chance. He ran and passed the Auburn Tigers to a shot at the national championship they were denied six years ago, and he might as well start working on that Heisman pose, too.
Heisman Trophy contender LaMichael James, Kenjon Barner and the fast-paced Ducks negotiated the last speed bump on the way to the BCS national title game, grinding out a 37-20 victory against Oregon State in the Civil War on Saturday.
Andy Dalton passed for a career-high 355 yards and three touchdowns and No. 4 TCU looked every bit like a team worthy of busting into the BCS championship game with a 47-7 demolition of No. 6 Utah on Saturday.
