Alabama abandoned their running game when they played Oklahoma last night.  Their strategy is (normally) to establish the run and pass off the play-action.  They are not a drop-back passing team and when they tried to use the drop-back mode to play catch-up, they were overrun by an Oklahoma team that is good when rushing the passer.  They started the second half by running and making their usual play-action game and scored a touchdown.  But when Oklahoma made a touchdown, they abandoned what brung 'em to the dance.

So, how are y'all feeling about Auburn vs. Fl. State?  I'm an Auburn fan, but I'm not feeling confident about them beating Florida State, y'know?

If everything holds true to form so far, all the BCS bowl games the team that was statistically favored to win has actually lost the game.

Rose Bowl - Stanford favored - Michigan State won
Fiesta Bowl - Baylor favored - UCF won
Sugar Bowl - Alabama favored - Oklahoma won
Orange Bowl - Ohio State favored - Clemson won
BCS Championship - FSU favored - ??????? won

I'm hoping that the same does not hold true Monday night. The BCS championship in the form as it is today wass ushered in by FSU who won the national championship. Since this is the last year of this championship, I think it would be fitting for FSU to close out the system with a win.
