Pasadena, CA --- It's here. The moment all players, coaches, and fans have been waiting for... the BCS National Championship.
For Florida State, it's the chance for their third National championship, 93 and 99 the first two. The second of those a BCS Championship.
The Tigers hoping for their third title, and second BCS title in 4 seasons!
The players on both sides talking a couple of days ago about what winning tonight would mean to them!
"Some of these guys on this team who ain't had a championship, like me personally, I haven't had a real championship since middle school," said FSU Quarterback Jameis Winston.
"Like (Jameis) said, in high school I haven't got a state championship," said FSU Receiver Kenny Shaw. "I was always one round, getting eliminated, so I haven't got no state title. I ain't got no championships other than probably 2K championships against the boys."
"When you've got the opportunity to play in a National Championship Game and your team is the only team on television, and then this game on my birthday, we're not going out there just to play around," said Winston. "We're not going out there to take anybody for granted. We're going out there to play a great game. We're going out there to do what we came here to do every single game, 13 games. I mean why not end this year with a victory?"
"Being in this moment, being a senior now, it's an awesome feeling, and there's no better way to go out," said Auburn Defensive End Nosa Eguae. "Just to go through the things that we've been through in our four or five years is an amazing experience. We're just making the most of the moment, going out there and just doing what we have to do to bring this one back to Auburn."
Will they be dancing around the Florida Capitol tonight? or partying at Toomer's Corner? We shall see. Enjoy the game everyone!
