I hope everyone had a good weekend. I’m stuck down here in snow. So, I figured I could at least blog while I’m stuck in my house.
Tonight is the big game. Oregon vs. Auburn. It certainly should be an entertaining game. I can’t imagine it’s going to be low scoring. I sure hope for the sake of the people who paid insane money to be there that it’s a good game. Speaking of that, I can’t believe how expensive the tickets are. Totally insane. I’m glad I didn’t have any intention of going to the game.
Anyway, I haven’t had a ton of opportunities to see Oregon play this year. I have seen Auburn quite a few times. Neither team look all that impressive defensively to me. I think they will both be able to move the ball relatively well.
I love the speed of Oregon. You’re not going to contain them for sure. I think they’ll break off a few big plays for sure. I don’t think Auburn is quite as explosive, but I don’t think they will have any trouble moving the ball either. Cam Newton has been amazing all year and I don’t believe the layoff will have much impact on him. He’s a very accurate passer and his passing skills are overlooked in my opinion. As long as Auburn doesn’t turn the ball over a lot, I like their chances.
I also feel like Auburn has played a little bit tougher schedule. I think that will ultimately be the deciding factor. In addition to that, Auburn will be able to handle it more if they get down early since they were able to weather the storm against Alabama. I do see a lot of scoring for sure. Prediction: Auburn 37, Oregon 30.Tags: auburn, big game, blog, Cam, cam newton, championship game, game preview, going to the game, good game, house, impact, insane money, intention, layoff, passer, sake, Speaking, Tonight, trouble
