FSU will be playing for all the marbles when they meet Auburn on Monday, January sixth, 2014 in Pasadena.
The Seminoles completed a magical regular season with a 12-0 record and added a second straight ACC Championship to their resume by blasting Duke in that conference championship Saturday night.
Auburn earned its right to play in the title game with a win over Missouri in the SEC championship Saturday afternoon.
The Tigers, who are also having a magical season, got into the championship game when Ohio State lost to Michigan State Saturday.
Now it will be Auburn-FSU daily on all media levels for the next month.
The bowl match-ups for the 35 games were announced Sunday night.
Ten teams from both the ACC and SEC will play in bowls so there will be a lot of local interest in the bowl season.
The games start December 21 and I’ll start giving my picks in next week’s column.
The Herald’s annual All-County Football team will be announced at our banquet today (Thursday).
Next week’s edition will have pictures and stats along with the annual Jackson Award winner, which is given to the county’s player of the year.
The first of the two annual East Gadsden-West Gadsden boys’ basketball games is set for Saturday night at East Gadsden.
Best to get there early for the 7:30 PM start if you want a good seat.
The two teams have played some interesting games over the years and Saturday should be no different as both rosters are loaded with talent.
TORRE NAMED TO
HALL OF FAME
Bobby Cox, Tony LaRussa and Joe Torre were selected to be enshrined in Major League Baseball’s Hall of Fame in August.
All three managers have been headliners in the trade.
Cox, of course was a southeast favorite, arguing his way through a career with the Atlanta Braves. LaRussa was an outstanding manager with St. Louis and Torre did a bang-up job with the Braves, Yankees and Dodgers.
All three certainly deserve the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame.
