Tonight’s 2014 BCS Championship Game puts the SEC’s seven-year national title streak on the line against the Florida State Seminoles as the Auburn Tigers hope to keep the crystal ball trophy in the SEC in the final year of the BCS.
With bragging rights on the line and SEC fans thinking FSU wouldn’t be as successful if they played an SEC schedule, Seminole star defender Lamarcus Joyner thinks they’d still be where they are at today.
“We believe we’re the No. 1 team in the country,” Joyner said. “We believe that in our heart. We wouldn’t come out and be disrespectful to a lot of other teams. But with the things we’ve accomplished this year, everything speaks for itself. So, hopefully, we would have been able to do the same thing. But me being a part of this Florida State organization, if we were in the SEC, I’d say we’d do what we do.”
It’s hard to disagree with what Joyner says considering his team is the owner of the No. 1 scoring offense and defense this season with the Heisman trophy winner on their side.
However, we will have a definitive answer this evening as the 2013 college football season and the BCS come to an end from the Rose Bowl.
