Things are still going Auburn's way in 2013 -- even in games in which it is not involved.

The No. 3 Tigers claimed the Southeastern Conference title Saturday (Dec. 7) in Atlanta with a 59-42 victory over Missouri. And Auburn also might wind up in the Bowl Championship Series title game, as No. 2 Ohio State lost 34-24 to Michigan State on Saturday night in the Big Ten title game.

At the Georgia Dome on Saturday, Auburn was led by running back Tre Mason, who had 304 yards rushing and four touchdowns.

"You're looking at one of the top running backs in college football,'' Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said. ''He was a warrior today. Unbelievable.''

No. 1 Florida State seemingly punched its ticket to the BCS title game with a 45-7 victory over Duke in the Atlantic Coast Conference title game on Saturday night

The official word on the title-game matchup will come Sunday (Dec. 8) at 8:30 p.m. on ESPN.

Should Auburn indeed be paired against FSU in the big game, it will mark the eighth straight season that the SEC has played for the BCS title.

Already this season, Auburn had claimed victories over Alabama and Georgia with so-called miracle finishes. But the Tigers needed no miracle Saturday, as they had a whopping 545 yards rushing, according to media reports.
