BCS National Championship Game

The top-ranked Florida State Seminoles and No. 2 Auburn Tigers will clash
Monday night in the final BCS National Championship game. The showdown
features a pair of teams that took very different paths to the title game. Led
by Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston at quarterback and a stifling defense,
Florida State (13-0) has overpowered its opponents, winning every game but one
by at least 28 points. Auburn (12-1), meanwhile, has been viewed as a team of
destiny after two miraculous plays helped it reach the national title game for
the second time in four years. Ricardo Louis scored a touchdown on a deflected
73-yard pass from Nick Marshall on 4th-and-18 with 25 seconds remaining to
stun Georgia on Nov. 16, then Chris Davis returned a missed field goal attempt
more than 100 yards for a touchdown on the final play to lift the Tigers to a
victory over then-No. 1 and two-time defending national champion Alabama on
Nov. 30. Auburn is looking to make it eight straight national titles for the
SEC, which has captured nine of the 15 all-time BCS Championshps. A four-team
system dubbed the College Football Playoff will replace the much-debated BCS
format next year. Kickoff time is 7:30

Recently released statistics show that immigration to the United States has accounted for 82% of the population growth over the past 8 years.

This may be an alarming fact to a number of people, especially conservatives who do not trust President Obama on this issue. The fact is, however, that this trend has been going on for decades.
