Judging by the statistics, the BCS national championship game between Auburn and Florida State offers something for fans of all tastes.

For those who like offense, they'll get to watch an FSU team that's second nationally in scoring at 53 points a game and sixth in total offense at 529.4 yards. Auburn is 11th in both scoring and offense, at 40.2 points and 505.3 yards.

You want defense? Auburn's 1,600-yard rusher Tre Mason will be going against a Seminoles unit that's giving up just under 117 yards on the ground and has allowed a nation-low five rushing touchdowns.
