ESPN.com columnist Mark Schlabach, on the BCS National Championship: After all the concerns about undefeated Boise State being left out, or Auburn losing to Alabama in the Iron Bowl, I really believe the BCS is giving college football the best matchup of undefeated teams.”

ESPN analyst Skip Bayless: “Early thoughts on Auburn-Oregon. Auburn could dump-truck the Ducks. Something like 48-14. Too much firepower on offense. Defensive line too strong.”

CBS Sportsline columnist Dennis Dodd: “Gene Chizik and Chip Kelly, then, are in-step with the times. Their teams are in the BCS title game because of comebacks, at times huge ones. Chizik's Auburn (team) had to come from behind in eight of its 13 wins. Four of those eight saw the Tigers down by double digits. Oregon has eight comeback wins of its own. That's 16 games, more than a full season, during which the top-ranked teams in the country have trailed by a maximum of 157 points.”
