Ticket Down announces that tickets for the 2014 BCS Championship Game between the Florida Seminoles and the Auburn Tigers are in high demand.
For the first time since 2001, the Florida State Seminoles will have a chance to compete for the BCS National Championship, while the Auburn Tigers will be looking to win their second title in four seasons. The 2014 BCS National Championship will kick off on Monday, January 6 from the world-famous Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. Tickets are on sale now for your chance to see the stars of tomorrow in the National Football League compete today.
The Florida State Seminoles were the most consistent team throughout the 2013-14 season. While the Alabama Crimson Tide got all the admiration and respect from the media, it was the Seminoles that were quietly making waves in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Starting off as the No. 11 ranked team in the nation, they went 13-0, beating three top 25 teams by a combined score of 137-35. Their closest victory came against Boston College by 14 points, while the next closest margin was 27 points when they beat Miami (FL.).
Led by the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner, Jameis Winston, who threw for 3,820 yards with 38 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, along with four touchdowns on the ground, the Seminoles had an offense that couldn’t be kept up with. The trio of Devonta Freeman, Karlos Williams and James Wilder Jr., combined to rush for 2,190 yards with 32 touchdowns. To match their high-powered offense, the Seminoles had a magnificent defense that allowed more than 15 points just once and limited teams to less than 10 points seven times.
While the Seminoles are the heavy favorite heading into the BCS National Championship, the Tigers aren’t ready to back down. When Auburn defeated the Oregon Ducks to win the BCS title in 2011, they were the slight favorite and barely beat the spread to win the title. They will need to show more firepower with their offense against the tough Seminoles team. Led by first-year coach Gus Malzahn, the Tigers will be prepared to contend with the Seminoles, but can’t afford to fall behind early.
The Tigers finished the season with a 12-1 record in the Southeastern Conference. Their lone loss came against the then-sixth ranked LSU Tigers, but the Tigers recovered to win their final nine games including a massive upset against their arch-rival Alabama Crimson Tide on a missed field goal return for a touchdown. Following that win, they had the momentum needed to run straight through the Missouri Tigers in the SEC Championship, 59-42.
Auburn was led offensively this season by Nick Marshall, a talented quarterback who can do more a lot more than just pass the football. He threw for 1,759 yards and 12 touchdowns, while also rushing for 1,023 yards and 11 touchdowns. His job was also easy when it came to handing off the rock, as Tre Mason ran for 1,621 yards and 22 scores including a 304-yard, four touchdown game against Missouri.
