Derick E. Hingle- USA TODAY Sports

This is the biggest game of the 2013-14 college football season. Each team is full of dangerous playmakers on both sides of the ball. Both teams have a Heisman candidate leading their offensive attack. The game is guaranteed to be overflowing with scoring and big impact plays.

On paper, the Florida State Seminoles are the better team on defense and total offense, but the Auburn Tigers have the edge in the rushing game. With the chance of each team possessing the ability to run away with the game, this will be one game you will not want to miss.

Last season’s national championship game saw the Alabama Crimson Tide roll over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish by a score of 42-14. Notre Dame’s defense was poised to make a statement against the rushing attack of Alabama. Unfortunately, they were unable to do so. The Tide rushed for 265 yards, having two different running back go for over 100 yards.

This game will have everything and more for the college football fan to soak up. Even if you are not a big college football fan, this is one game you will want to watch. Still not convinced? Well, take a stroll on the slideshow and check out five more reasons why you should be watching this incredible game.

The Vizio BCS National Championship game will be January 6 at 8:30 EST on ESPN.

5. Florida States Scary Defense

The defensive for the Florida State Seminoles is the best in the country, period. FSU is ranked No. 1 in points allowed a game with only 10.7. Auburn has a high-powered offense, which will do everything in its power to keep continuous pressure on the Seminoles. The Tigers possess a dynamic rushing attack that could be the only way for them to stay in the game. If FSU can shut down Tre Mason and Nick Marshall for Auburn, the offense of the Tigers will have an extremely difficult time producing any kind of offense.

4. Nick Marshall's Rushing Ability

His passing game may not be the most dangerous one this side of the Mississippi, but his ability to make plays with his feet makes him a dual-threat to opposing defenses. Marshall rushed for 1,023 yards and 11 touchdowns, placing him second on the team only behind Tre Mason in rushing yards and touchdowns. His passing game was decent, but he only threw for 1,759 yards and 12 touchdowns. In his defense, the rushing attack was next to impossible to stop, thus the reason for the lack passing stats. If FSU is able to shut down the rushing attack of Auburn, it could be a long day for Marshall against an incredibly dangerous Seminole secondary.

Let's make it simple; FSU is fast, strong, talented and can flat out embarrass teams on a weekly bases. The Seminoles offense averages 322 passing yards and 207 rushing yards a game. This makes them one of the most dynamic offenses in all of college football. Auburns defense is ranked 37th in the country in points allowed, leading one to believe that FSU could potentially go off on the Tigers defense.

Having a national championship game that features two Heisman candidates is a rare treat for sports fans. Mason blasted on to the scene late in the 2013 season with five games with over 100 yards rushing. His final game of the season against Missouri in the SEC title game, Masons exploded for 304 yards and four touchdowns. His future is incredibly bright and is the type of player you will definitely see on Sundays in the near future.

The 2013 Heisman Trophy winner will be looking to impress and show once again why he is the best player in the country. His freshman year blew the minds of everyone in college football and re-established the dominance of the Seminoles program. Jameis Winston threw for 3,820 yards and 38 touchdowns, he also added 542 rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns. After only one season in college football, Winston has forever placed himself in the record books both for FSU and college football. His best performance of the season came in a 63-0 victory against Maryland. During this game, Winston threw five touchdowns and passed for 393 yards. Auburn will have their hands full all game with the shifty Winston running the FSU offense.
