There are several reasons why Auburn could win the championship game. a) Auburn has played several games against stellar quarterbacks and will not be awed by Jameis Winston and his extraordinary skills. They have faced Mettenberger, Murray, McCarron, & Manziel, so they are no stranger to talented quarterback play. They won't let that knock them off their game. b)FSU has not been in even one close game this year. Auburn has, and has won a couple of nail biters. If Auburn hangs around until the late 3 rd quarter, the pressure builds on FSU and their young qb. c) Jimbo Fisher jinxed his squad in his press conference the other day when he pooh poohed the SEC dominance. He said something to the effect that he had coached many years in the SEC himself, and understood the pro-SEC propaganda. He declared that they had built the team in Tallahassee to win championships, and not to "compete with teams in the SEC". They lose.
