Like he has been all season, Auburn coach Gene Chizik was stoic and all-business Friday during warmups at the Georgia Dome for the SEC title game.
Let's talk more about the big game set for early next month, and some thoughts from Auburn's Gene Chizik. Thanks to the beatdown of South Carolina in the SEC Championship Saturday, which finished out a perfect 13 and oh season for the Tigers, Chizik and company are now making plans to head west in early January for the BCS Championship. They'll take on Oregon on January 10th.
For Auburn it's the first trip ever to the BCS title game, for Chizik though it's a return trip.
You see coached as an assistant with Texas when the 'horns won the oh-5 BCS championship.
Auburn Head Coach
"You know there's really no other feeling like it. You know I've been blessed to be a part of a lot of different bowl games that were considered to be, you know with the history and everything of those games, considered to be one of the best one's out there. But there's something different about playing in the national championship game. And my recollection and memory of it, was something really it's hard to describe, you have to be there and do it, but it's just a great time."
Again Auburn installed as a three point favorite for that game with the Ducks.
