There’s a reason that the Auburn Tigers were able to climb their way up to number two in the country and afford themselves the opportunity of playing the top-ranked Florida State Seminoles in Pasadena for the BCS National Championship. That reason has clearly been the utter domination of their offensive unit. Head coach Gus Malzhan has progressively gotten this unit better week after week.

However, on January 6 when they play for the crystal ball, they will face a defense the likes of which they haven’t seen this season in the one that FSU will trout out onto the Rose Bowl field. Aside from probably Alabama, this will be the toughest test for Nick Marshall, Tre Mason and company.

Florida State linebacker Telvin Smith wants everyone to know that, too.

Thursday, the punishing backer gave his view as to why the Tigers’ offense has been so unstoppable, and he believes it doesn’t have so much to do with how well they’ve executed their plays, rather it has to do with the opposing defense’s inability to execute:

    By far the very best team Auburn has seen ALL SEASON. FSU should have been in that #1 spot all season long but the talk’n heads on ESPN was scared of Saban. I say lets play the game anyway and see what happens when a Seminole grabs a AU-Tiger by the Tail…Something will give or Something will break.
