I'm gonna love this thread.
1st. This is going to be an epic, EPIC contest. These are two of the best football teams I can remember seeing in a long time. I'm picking the Ducks, because I've been with 'em all year, and I'm a homer. Either team could win, and no one should be surprised when one of 'em does.
Jerome's Couch Trip Analysis of Da Big Game:
The keys to this one rides on Auburns running game. They way you stop Oregon's offense is to keep them on the sideline. Auburn will lose a shootout, so for them, it's about ball control. Auburn's leading rusher is their quarterback, though. They don't really have a big dominant RB that can smash the ball inside. Granted, Cam Newton is generally the best athlete on the field when he's playing, but I don't know if he can carry an Auburn team past a really fast, aggressive Oregon defense that has pretty much stated that they're going to chase him all over the backfield.
Anyway, my pick is Ducks by a touchdown in a relatively high scoring game. If the Tigers can win the clock battle, they'll probably win the game.
Someday we'll win this thing...
