Oregon, Auburn take different paths to the BCS

If there was one word to characterize the typical Oregon game this season, it would be blowout.

For Auburn — try comeback.

Both of the teams playing in the BCS title game are undefeated, but they've taken wildly different paths to Arizona. While the No. 2 Ducks have been in just one game that was closer than double-digits, the top-ranked Tigers have had to rally eight times.

Somebody's going to have an atypical game Monday night.

Auburn coach Gene Chizik says all the tight games have developed chemistry, while Oregon running back LaMichael James says he enjoys seeing opposing defenses tire out when they can't stop the Ducks' high speed "blur offense."
