So who will be this year's Auburn?

Auburn certainly surprised everyone last season by running the table and winning the National Championship behind Cam Newton.
UConn finished 5-2 in the Big East and faced Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl.
Nevada derailed Boise State's chance to compete in a BCS bowl and finished 13-1.
Mississippi State went 9-4, upsetting Georgia and Florida before destroying Michigan in the Gator Bowl.
