It looks great when it works but so many times they miss or give up more yards. This is what happened and could have cost Bama a chance to get back with a tie.
I think there were 3 big screens down the stretch. Bama was taking some ridiculous chances up front. And screens are usually made or lost on whether one guy can make a play.

Bama once again not showing up when they don't get to play for the title.
I so need Auburn to win the NC so I can rub it in all my Bama friend's faces.

I don't see a ton of difference between FSU and Al Qaeda, but still cannot deny that they will murder Auburn. Auburn doesn't have the kids to run with them, especially defensively.

I hear that Texas is interested in Mora jr. but he is turning down their overtures.

Its not official yet but it's getting closer. I couldn't blame him for taking it, that's always been his dream job and he is tired of local HS coaches and "mentors" and grandma's wanting a piece of the action.

Yeah Florida recruiting is turning into aau. I wouldn't be surprised if major violations of a school recruiting Florida kids occurs.

I think we will find out tomorrow. I'd love to keep him, but we will see.

You severely overrate FSU. Auburn has plenty of talent and will have no trouble hanging with FSU.

Im not overrating anything. There is nothing better than a top flight Florida kid. i would take a 4 star from Florida over a 5 star from anywhere else. Auburn has no defense and their offense will have trouble with FSUs speed on defense. They aren't going to beat those kids to the corner.

FSUs level of athlete far outclasses Auburn. I'd love to see Auburn win.

They will get raped. The difference in talent is massive.

You will see it soon enough. I hope I'm wrong.

BOOMER FREAKIN SOONER!

So excited for the outcome of this game, especially Trevor Knight's play. Dude took a monumental jump, from being a mediocre QB to playing like a true stud out there against a top Alabama defense. Well done Trevor! Excited to see how next year goes now.

This win should really help the OU program too, coming out on top against Alabama, finishing up 11-2 with a depleted roster like that, iffy playing by the QB position all year, just should help maybe get more recruiting power going forward.

I bet Texas Tech QB Baker Mayfield changes his mind about transferring to OU as a walk-on.

SABAN lost his cool at the end of the FIRST HALF!
not accustomed to being down, he abandoned the run completely with 2 minutes on the clock and pass after pass got him an INT and a 14 point defacit instead of 7 or 4 or a tie.
all thast PASSING, not his teams strong suit, led to more sacks,fumbles and INTs in the second half too.
SABAN was caught off guard by the passing offense of OU and it took him out of his own offensive gameplan.
Reminded me of andy reid or shanny!
down by 10 points, IN THE FIRST HALF, and they panic and go into pass happy mode.

First, they're not going to crush Auburn. Second, what does that prove except that SEC doesn't win the title every year. So far it hasn't been proven, but it's ridiculous to think they'll win it every year. They've already had a great post-season going 5-2 with three bowls to go.

SEC has yet to ever lose a BCS title game (that they were represented in)

This is kinda/sorta their last opportunity to do so. If Auburn wins, it would complete a pretty concrete display of national dominance. No way to argue it.

Although I guess it's already pretty hard to argue whether Auburn wins or loses.

I think it'll be a close game.

I'm an ACC fan, but it was weaker than in years past this season.

Christ, freaking Duke won its division and made a semi decent bowl game.

I think it's very possible FSU completely annihilates Auburn. By no means is it certain, but if FSU slows down Auburn's running game they will not be able to keep pace offensively.

Saban is very good at finding the weakness of the team.I believe he doesn't have much film on Trevor.

Man, it'd be tough to watch your frosh QB put on a display like that in the big game and then walk away from the program for the Cleveland Browns.

You do realize that other states are good at football right? I understand that Florida produces the most talent in the country, but there is plenty of evidence to support that this is flawed logic. Take Jeff Driskel for instance, he's dog **** and there are plenty of QB's in that class I'd take over him. I understand what you are trying to say, but Texas and California produce great talent also. To a lesser extent, Georgia, Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
