Fourteen extremely wise or extremely lucky people placed bets on Auburn at 1,000 to 1 to win this year's national championship game at the Las Vegas Hilton SportsBook before the season.

While the Tigers were coming off a dismal season that saw them go winless in the SEC, these fourteen people had faith in Auburn to make it all the way back to the top of college football.

For Auburn to get a chance at the title they will likely need either Ohio State or Florida State to lose in their conference championship game, while they must win their SEC championship battle with Missouri. Then all Auburn has to do is beat another powerhouse football team to make fourteen people very rich. [TBL]
