BCS Championship Matchup Proves to be a Great One

Big play, score. Big play, score. Rinse and repeat.

This will be pretty common come January 10, 2011 in the National Championship game between the Auburn Tigers and the Oregon Ducks.

Both offenses are explosive and speedy, with both averaging a ton of points.

Oregon averages 49.3 points per game, while Auburn averages 42.7 points.

Auburn will be led by Heisman trophy winner Cam Newton, who has been surrounded by a surplus of controversy this year, although no wrongdoing has actually been proven.

Newton has scored 49 TD’s this season, 28 of which went through the air, and 20 on the turf.

Newton has been in the conversation for being one of the best college football players of all time.

Oregon will be led by Heisman finalist LaMichael James, who has rushed for over 1600 rushing yards and 21 TDs.

The big question is who will be able to defend whom.

Oregon will struggle to defend Cam Newton, a duel threat quarterback that has passed for 2589 yds, and rushed for 1409 yds.

His elusiveness, ability to scramble and throw on the run will cause problems for the Oregon defense.

Auburn will be tested by a well-versed Oregon rushing attack led by James and quarterback Darron Thomas, and the nation’s number one scoring team.

It’s easier to see Auburn coming on top on January 10. With an amazing play maker in Cam Newton, and a schedule that screams difficult, Auburn looks to squeeze past Oregon for the National BCS Title.
