National Championship Prediction Thread

War Eagle!

It's hard to believe that our Auburn Tigers will face the Oregon Ducks in the National Championship Game one week from today. It goes without saying that next Monday night's game is the biggest in Auburn football history. Fortunately, it's also the biggest in Oregon football history, so you can expect both teams to come out a little nervous. It has all the makings of a classic shoot-out, with two of the most prolific offenses in the country squaring off in the desert. I can't wait!

It's been about a month since our last prediction thread, so I had to go digging to find the winner of that thread. By and large, the predictions were the furthest off from the actual score of any prediction thread since the 65-43 Arkansas beatdown. However, one prediction (single-digit points off) stood out from the rest (double-digit points off). Congratulations go out to commenter UglyJoe, whose 63-17 prediction was only 7 points off the actual final score of 56-17.  UglyJoe is our first repeat winner this year, and the other thread that he won was the Arkansas thread. I guess UglyJoe has a knack for knowing when Auburn is going to go off offensively! Congratulations on your two-time addition to the winners' board!

Game 1 (Arkansas State): Sparkey
Game 2 (Mississippi State): Col.Angus
Game 3 (Clemson): Jumpn_JackFlash (PERFECT)
Game 4 (South Carolina): Todd92
Game 5 (Louisiana-Monroe): SandMountainTiger
Game 6 (Kentucky): AU04Natlchamps
Game 7 (Arkansas): UglyJoe
Game 8 (Louisiana State): buddy Ro
Game 9 (Mississippi): DarthTiger
Game 10 (Chattanooga): kerr024
Game 11 (Georgia): watchupdoc and WarDamnZach
Game 12 (Alabama): Foy Onion
Game 13 (SEC Championship): UglyJoe

I don't know about y'all, but I'm starting to get butterflies in my stomach for this game. I'm constantly nervous, and having trouble sleeping. I'm dreaming about the game. Maybe I need a new hobby! Anyway, I think the key to this game will come down to how well our defensive line can cause problems for Oregon's offensive  line. It's the only way we can possibly stop their blur offense. Hopefully Nick Fairley and company saved their best game for last and they camp out in the Ducks' backfield. If that happens, I am confident Auburn leaves the desert with a crystal football in tow!

So now, for my prediction (drum roll please)...

Oregon 38
Auburn 41

P.S. - Entries are accepted until one hour before kickoff (6:30 PM CT) and if a user enters two scores, only the first counts. Also, if you only give a score and don't designate which score belongs to which team, I will assume that you are picking Auburn to win by that score.

We're all just trying to have a good time here. Don't be a jerk, and we won't have a problem with you. War Eagle!
