Last night, Cam Newton and the Auburn Tigers finished their title run by defeating the Oregon Ducks in the BCS Championship Game. For Auburn, the perfect season finished with their first national title since 1957. Although the game was not the high-scoring shootout of offensive brilliance that many expected, it couldn’t have been any closer, as Auburn kicked the winning field goal as time expired.
Auburn’s quest for a national title in football has not only been a long time coming, but it has also been quite the roller coaster for fans and players, both past and present. Over the last twenty years, the program has gone undefeated three times. Still, 2010 was the first of those seasons to result in a national title. Finally, after years of waiting, the fans and alumni can finally wear the navy and burnt orange as representatives of the best team in college football.
