WOOO!!! I am so jacked up for this one between the Undefeated UCF Knights and the Auburn Tigers! This game is going to feature two of the top coaches in America in Gus Malzahn and Scott Frost. For those of you who have been living under a rock, Scott Frost will be leaving UCF for Nebraska after this game so you better bet this one going to be emotional! Props to Frost though for not jumping ship *cough *cough* Jimbo Fischer *cough *cough* and actually finishing what he started.
Auburn comes into this one after seeing its National Title hopes slip through their fingers as they lost to Georgia 28-7. Auburn finished 10-3 with its 3 losses coming at Clemson, at LSU and of course, i just mentioned Georgia. But Auburn defeated the #1 team in the country not once but twice!! They beat Georgia and then 2 weeks later took care of Alabama, both teams find themselves in the playoff. Auburn has played fantastic football on all 3 phases but they rely most on RB Kerroyn Johnson, who was battling a pretty severe shoulder injury during the SEC Championship. If he’s fully healthy this could be a loooong day for UCF
Scott Frost might be my favorite coach in America behind Lane Kiffin. Frost is unlike most coaches because instead of recruiting at his new school Nebraska he is coaching the bowl game for his soon to be ex-employer. I will say the locker room is fully behind Frost who played his college ball at Nebraska. If UCF wants to have a shot in this game they’re going to have to be extremely efficient on offense but most of all they’re going to have to slow down Auburns run game. I don’t think UCF has the size, strength or speed to beat Auburn. Their only hope is that they’re more fired up than Auburn is and they can jump on them early.
