The Florida State Seminoles are nine point favorites in the BCS National Championship game, but the Auburn Tigers have been defying odds all season long. From their Hail Mary win over Georgia to the play of the decade to beat Alabama, Auburn clearly doesn’t pay attention to the odds and that is continuing in the title game.

After the Noles took a 3-0 lead on their first drive of the game, the Tigers quickly found themselves in a 3rd and 14 situation on their second drive of the game. But the odds have been defied by Auburn all year, and the Tigers somehow converted the long third down thanks to a great catch by Marcus Davis.

The Noles have the lead, but Davis helped get Auburn some massive momentum, and that’s all you need in a game like this.
