BCS National Championship Preview: Why Oregon Will Win

By January 9, 2011

Follow me on:

So it's almost here. After more than a month of talk off the field, the Oregon Ducks and the Auburn Tigers are about to get their chance to do their talking on the field.

It is BCS National Championship Eve, and we are mere hours from crowning college football's latest champion.

The Ducks-Tigers battle figures to be one of the most entertaining national title showdowns we've ever seen ... and offense is the biggest reason why. Both the Tigers (42.7 points per game) and the Ducks (49.2 points per game) boast impossible-to-stop offenses and spectacular individual talents (Heisman winner Cam Newton for Auburn, Heisman finalist LaMichael James for Oregon, among many others), which means that both the Duck and Tiger defenses are going to be in for, shall we say, difficult evenings.

It is quite clear: We are likely to see more points scored here than we've ever seen in a BCS-era title tilt.

But which team will score more points? Which team will walk home with the 2010 national title--not to mention conference bragging rights for at least the next seven months?

Well, in at least one writer's not-so-humble opinion, the answer is ... Oregon.

You can find out why I like the Ducks to knock off the Tigers--why I believe Oregon can, in fact, overcome the singular force that is Cam Newton--right here, in my 2010-2011 National Championship Game preview.

Enjoy, folks. And please feel free to tell me why I'm wrong.
