If recent history is any indication, Auburn does have a strong edge coming into the 2014 BCS Championship game. The winner of the Iron Bowl between Auburn and Alabama has gone on to win the championship every year since 2009.
But it is Florida State that comes into this matchup with an undefeated season (Auburn had one loss).
Florida State dismantled Duke Saturday to ensure their perfect 13-0 record.
Florida State had twice as many rushing yards on designed runs as Duke Saturday. Before Duke's final drive, the Blue Devils had 78 yards on designed runs, the same amount of rushing yards after contact that Florida State finished with.
The Heisman Trophy favorite, Jameis Winston, was 19 of 32 for 330 yards and set FBS freshman records for TD passes (38) and yards passing (3,820) in a season.
The Seminoles starting quarterback did show vulnerabilities, however. Winston completed 2-of-9 passes thrown 15 or more yards downfield in the first half Saturday. It was the most such incompletions for Winston in a half this season. In the second half, Winston completed three of his first four passes thrown 15-plus yards.
