Should be an interesting matchup, for several reasons: This year throws out the "defense win championships" concept that has usually been the case. Basketball-like numbers could show up (Of course, now that I've said that, watch the final score be 7-6...nah!). Two electrifying QB's: It may very well be a Heisman vs. Runner-up matchup. Exactly how hideous will Oregon's outfits be? Conventional wisdom seems to say the last team with the ball will win (I disagree). My early thoughts (not that anyone cares that much ( )--Auburn will take down Oregon pretty handily. Don't think Oregon's seen anyone the like's of Auburn. And an SEC mid-pack defense is so much better than a Pac-10 mid-pack D. And I'm more impressed with Auburn's range of offensive weapons. I won't be surprised if Auburn wins by 17-20 points. Oh...in other sports headlines...the most unnecessary line I've seen in print in a long time: Huge Brawl before USC-UCLA; 2 Stabbed: (wait for it....) "It's unclear what started the brawl, but police said drinking was a major factor." Duh. Ya think??
