Fans can watch the BCS National Championship Game live online as Florida State and Auburn vie for the national title.
This year is the last one for the Bowl Championship Series before the highly anticipated College Football Playoff takes its place, and is going out with what looks to be a game for the ages. The dominant and high-scoring Florida St. team, led by quarterback Jameis Winston, will take on the streaking Auburn team that got a miracle finish in the Iron Bowl against Alabama to earn its title chance.
Many see it as a perfect send-off for the BCS.
“We all complain about the BCS, but isn’t it funny how often they get it right,” fourth-year Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said.
Fans who want to watch the BCS National Championship Game live online are in luck, as ESPN is offering live-streaming video of all the action. The game takes place Monday at 8:30 pm from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.
Florida St. comes into the game with a perfect 13-0 record, beating its four ranked opponents by a 200-35 margin. The Seminoles beat No. 20 ranked Duke 45-7 in the ACC title game to finish the season No. 1 and earn its place in the BCS National Championship Game.
“We wanted to win this championship so bad,” Winston said after the game. “We were looking forward to having an undefeated season.”
While Florida St. rolled through its opponents this year, those who watch the BCS National Championship game live online will see an Auburn team that reached the title game with a number of nail-biter finishes. The Tigers defeated Georgia with a Hail Mary pass on 4th and 18 from the 25 yard line. The pass sailed through through three Georgia defensive backs, who tipped it perfectly to Ricardo Louis, who ran it in for the winning score.
Auburn got another miracle in the Iron Bowl against Alabama, knocking off the then-No. 1 ranked Crimson Tide by returning a missed field goal 108 yards for a touchdown when time expired.
