Figured I'd split the three Bowl games into seperate threads to avoid large masses of posts all over the place and seeing how one can get lost in a thread approaching 300 posts.
This is you're official Outback Bowl Thread
Melvin Gordon still running for Heisman award.
Auburn football redshirt Freshman Jakell Mitchell (TE/H-Back) was killed in a shooting this morning at 12:25am. The shooting happened at the same apartment complex Desmonte Leonard killed former Auburn football players Ed Christian, Ladarious Phillips, and DeMario Pitts at a party in the summer of 2012.
Last one, heald in the Grand Daddy of them all!
Florida State is favored by 13 on a neutral field, by some ESPN bottom line metric. Will Jameis Winston with the Heisman and MNC and end the SEC's run of 6 straight?
Auburn is the self-proclaimed team of destiny. Will they have one more miracle tonight?
Line: FSU - 10.5

SLIGHT MOD EDIT - Not really OT for our purposes. We'll make this the open thread. - LSA
I was thinking about the fact that if OSU beats Michigan this weekend, how could they get into the MNC game? I don't see FSU losing to Florida and they are set to play Duke in the ACC Championship, also can't see a loss. So Alabama needs to lose to Auburn or in the SEC Championship, both of which is possible.
BUT.... if Auburn beats Alabama and then goes on to beat a #4 or #5 Missouri in the SEC Championship, would they jump OSU in BCS standings?
According to a number of reports, including one linked below. Interesting to see the impact on Derrick Green. On the one hand, he's a great offensive coach. On the other hand, he's a spread guy.
