2011 College Football Pre-Season Rankings

#1 Auburn Tigers

The Top Ranked Auburn Tigers without Cam Newton will hope to repeat in 2011.

With the NFL labor dispute threatening the 2011 NFL season, college football is gearing up and is ready to satisfy your football fix.  Although summer seemingly just begun, many college football programs are beginning their summer camps in preparation for the first game in early September.  It’s hard to believe that is only a month and a half away!

The 2011 NCAA Football season should be another exciting one as prominent football programs Nebraska and Colorado changed conferences.  The Nebraska Cornhuskers decided to leave the Big 12 and join the Big 10.  This could not have come at a better time for the Big 10 as annual BCS contenders Ohio State’s future is up in the air following the NCAA investigation of Jim Tressel and Terrelle Pryor deciding not to come back.  The Colorado Buffaloes also decided to join the ranks of the PAC 10 and will be sure to form some natural rivalries with schools on the west coast.

To no ones surprise, the 2010-11 BCS National Champions Auburn Tigers are the preseason favorites this year.  It will be interesting to see if they can overcome the loss of the dynamic Cam Newton and continue their unbeaten streak.  If they have trouble adjusting, the TCU Horned Frogs will have a shot at the BCS crown.  The would be quite a feat for a team from the Mountain West. PAC 10 powerhouses Oregon and Stanford, along with LSU and Alabama of the SEC also have strong teams heading into the season and could contend for a National Championship.  The rest of the Free Ticket Classifieds Blog top 10 is below:

2010 SEC Football Championship Matchup Set

CamNewton-aubrun-tigers-ticketsHooray!  The best time of the year has arrived.  No, not Turkey Day nor even the Holidays.  The Bowl Championship games are firming up, culminating with the SEC Championship game which was just finalized.   The Auburn Tigers are set to play the South Carolina Gamecocks at the Georgia Dome on December 4th, 2010.

This is shaping up to be an entertaining and competitve game, given all the Cam Newton drama that has been going on.  After Auburn’s win versus Georiga, Newton was mysteriously absent after the game;  no interviews, no comments,no reasoning from the coaches,  no nothing.  That’s not surprising given the controversey over the allegations that his father solicited BIG money during the recruiting process.  Newton is the current Golden Boy at Auburn.  During the 3 hour, 39-minute battle against Georgia, with 299 yards in total offense, Newton was on fire.  He became the first player ever in SEC history to throw 2,000 and rush for 1,000 in a season.  Although Auburn is looking primed to make an appearance in the BCS title game, they will still have to beat the defending National Champion Alabama Crimson tide in the Iron Bowl and beat the Gamecocks in the SEC title game in order to guarantee a spot in the big game.

South Carolina, on the other hand, is fresh off a major beat down of the Florida Gators.  Steve Spurrier was able to best his former team 36-14 in order to qualify for their first SEC Championship game since joining the conference in 1992.  The Gamecocks were 0-12 in Gainesville up until this big win.  Although the South Carolina Gamecocks are just 7-3 (5-3 SEC) they certainly have momentum on their side with big wins over Alabama and Florida on their resume.  They also will not have to deal with the distractions plagued by Auburn.  There is no doubt that head coach Steve Spurrier will have his players well prepared with so much at stake.  A win over Auburn and South Carolina will advance to the Bowl Championship Series.

Auburn will no doubt be heavy favorites in the SEC Football Championship game as they are currently ranked #2 in the Nation.  A win for the Tigers and they will be bound for the BCS title game.  Stay tuned to see how the soap opera unfolds.
