NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) -- Florida State practices resemble a track meet as the Seminoles prepare for Auburn's offense.
The Tigers will feature the nation's No. 1 run game when the teams meet in the BCS championship. To prepare for the pace, defensive coaches have players racing back to the ball to line up and get set.
Auburn defensive end Dee Ford isn't just the Tigers' best defender. He's also a pretty good piano player who plays for his church on Sundays and once sang in his family's gospel band.
The versatile Ford will target Florida State's Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston in Monday night's BCS title game.
