The college football season is heading into the back stretch and with rivalry week and conference championship games on the horizon, many are starting to look at college football bowl projections and BCS games to make predictions on who will play and some of the top options are Alabama, Florida State and Ohio State as the schedule comes to a close.
The BCS National Championship game is shaping up to be a game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and Florida State Seminoles, while Ohio State is hoping one of those teams slips up in their final game to slip into the championship game. Ohio State is heading into a big game with Michigan and they are trying to go two seasons without losing, but if Bama and FSU remain undefeated, they will have to take one of the other BCS bowls.
Auburn and Alabama play in the Iron Bowl on Saturday and after that, the winner of that game will play in the SEC championship game and that will be a tough matchup as well to get into the national championship. Alabama will have to head out on the road to play against Auburn and that makes the game even more interesting, as the Crimson tide are 11-0 on the season and Auburn is 10-1 and fourth in the BCS after moving up all year. Alabama has remained firmly in first place all season and now Bama comes in 7-0 in the conference and ready for a huge matchup.
The game will be at Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday in the afternoon and Alabama comes in ranked first in the nation in scoring defense with under 10 points allowed per game and that means Auburn will have to play an amazing game to win on Saturday. Bama is first in the BCS standings ahead of Florida State and Ohio State, while Auburn and Missouri round out the top five ahead of Clemson, Oklahoma State, Stanford, Baylor and South Carolina in the top 10.
The Buckeyes are heading into the Big House on Saturday for their annual rivalry game and that matchup will be huge for the Big Ten and is the next chance for OSU to move up in the standings. The team comes in ranked in the top five in rushing yards per game and points scored and the Buckeyes are also in the top 10 in points against with under 20 per game. Auburn and Alabama are going to have a dog fight and Bama comes in only allowing over 20 points in one game and they will have to take care of QB Nick Marshall, who is coming off of a miracle win over Georgia.
