Oregon Ducks 48
Auburn Tigers 34
Cam Newton will make some plays -- that's why I expect them to score over 30 points -- but Auburn's pass defense is simply too weak to stop the Ducks.
Both defenses will try to do the same thing: stifle the other team's running game and force the quarterback to throw to win the game. Both Newton and Oregon quarterback Darron Thomas are, of course, capable of winning games with their arms.
But the difference in this game will be Oregon's secondary. They're much, much better than Auburn's, and they make plays. Oregon's defense has 20 interceptions but has given up only 10 touchdowns. Auburn's defense? Only 10 interceptions and 23 touchdowns. That will be the difference right there. Oregon's D will come up with just enough to win.
Also, Oregon has logic and science on its side.
