The BCS National Championship will be played on January 6 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. The game features two Southern teams, the No. 1-ranked Florida State Seminoles (13-0) and the No. 2-ranked Auburn Tigers (12-1). The game is special because it's the last BCS title game before college football transfers to a four-team playoff next year.
The first BCS Championship game was played in 1999. Since then, this marks the fourth appearance for the Seminoles and the second for the Tigers. Although FSU is currently a 7 1/2-point favorite in the game, Auburn has a little bit of history on its side: No SEC team has lost in the BCS Championship game to a team from outside the SEC.
