In its 13 years of existense the SEC has been represented in 7 BCS Championship games and won all 7. It is a certainty that if Auburn had been awarded the opportunity they would have easily defeated OU or USC.
All Joking aside, the 2004 Auburn Tigers are the best NCAA team in history. Who you got to compare? When you look at the roster its hard to believe they could have lost a game. Guess what, they didnt. They swept the toughest schedule in all of sports.
The team roster featured four first-round NFL draft picks in Cadillac Williams, running back Ronnie Brown, defensive back Carlos Rogers, and quarterback Jason Campbell, as well as three future Pro Bowl participants: offensive lineman Marcus McNeill, running back Ronnie Brown and defensive tackle Jay Ratliff
Not to mention perennial NFL starter Devin Aromashadu and Im sure im forgetting someone.
They should be awarded the title. They were the best team in the best conference. They were undefeated. They were the best NCAA team in History.

First off "Best team in NCAA history?" What are you smoking? Just because they were 13-0 doesn't mean they are the best team in history. The Tigers had a great roster, but 2001 Hurricanes team was better than them. Clinton Portis, Jeremy Shockey, Andre Johnson, Ed Reed, Jonathan Vilma, Vince Wilfork Willis Mcgahee, and Ken Dorsey. Not saying they were best ever but their roster was unbelievable. Saying that the 2004 Auburn Tigers was the best team ever is going too far.
Oklahoma deserves the title! They actually played in the BCS. The title got vacated and Oklahoma made it to the BCS and they should automatically get the award.
Oklahoma had Adrian Peterson, Mark Bradley, Mark Clayton, Brodney Pool, Garret Hartley, and the 2x pro bowler Jammal Brown. A team with Adrian Peterson and Jammal Brown is very talented.
You can't just say Auburn would've defeated either Oklahoma or USC. I think the that Auburn was very good but not good enough to win the BCS and certainly not be award BCS champions. It wouldn't be right to give the title to Auburn and not OU. The people who chose OU to be in the BCS knew what they were doing.
