While the chances are slim that Auburn will land in the Fiesta Bowl, there is a segment of the media who believe Auburn is the best choice. Surprisingly, the one leading the chorus is ESPN Game Day host Kirk Herbstreit.
And it's easy to see why. Never has a team gotten so much credit for a loss as Notre Dame has since losing to Southern Cal. But really when you break down the records, who did Notre Dame beat this year? Compared to Auburn, the Irish really had no quality wins.
With that said, who are we kidding? Notre Dame is headed to the Fiesta Bowl. Truth be told, they'd take them with six wins if they could. Still, it's nice to see that others recognize that Auburn is BCS material. But you'll never hear me complain about a trip to the Capital One Bowl.
