The Auburn Tigers were nine point underdogs coming into their National Championship game against the Florida State Seminoles. But as has been established all season long, the Tigers defy odds and we’re seeing the culmination of that in the BCS title game as Auburn has now taken a 21-3 lead over Florida State.
Tre Mason got the scoring started earlier in the game and it has been all Nick Marshall from there. The Tigers quarterback is having his best game of the year at the exact right time for Auburn and capped off a defensive fumble recovery for Auburn with a touchdown to extend the lead to 21-3.
The game is still far from over, despite the score, and the Noles are capable of a comeback. But this storybook season really only has one ending for Auburn it seems and they’re hellbent on proving everyone wrong for a final time.
