Florida State And Auburn Will Play For College Football National Championship

The Seminoles roll and Michigan State upsets Ohio State, opening up a spot in the national title game for SEC champs Auburn.

After a high-octane day of college football, the matchup of the national title game is (almost certainly) set: Florida State’s juggernaut will take on Auburn for all the marbles. The Seminoles punched their ticket with a conclusive 45-7 whoopin’ of a game but overmatched Duke team to cinch the ACC title and complete an undefeated season.

Earlier in the day, Auburn had won the SEC title behind an absolutely epic performance from running back Tre Mason, who ran 46 times (!) for 304 yards (!!) in a 59-42 defeat of Missouri. This referee probably got the cleanest shot on Mason all day.

And in the day’s most surprising — and best — game, the Michigan State Spartans won their first outright Big Ten title since 1987 with a close-fought but decisive 34-24 defeat of Ohio State. The biggest play of the game by far came when Denicos Allen — a Hamilton, Ohio native — stopped Braxton Miller on 4th and 2 with just minutes to play and OSU trailing by 3.

It was the Buckeyes’ first loss in two seasons, dropped them from a likely berth in the national title game, and made Urban Meyer sad.

With Ohio State’s loss, Auburn sneaks into the title game — one more lucky bounce in their already-legendary Season of Destiny. It all goes down at 8:30 p.m. on January 6, 2014 in the Rose Bowl. Should be a good one.
