42. 2004 Auburn Tigers

Record: 13 - 0
Finish: Sugar Bowl: Won
Coach: Tommy Tuberville
Best Player: Ronnie Brown

Don't think competition in the SEC is tough? Auburn head coach Tommy Tuberville was nearly fired after going 8-5 in 2003. Not 5-8, but 8-5. So how did Tuberville bounce back? By leading his team to a 13-0 season, and a victory in the Sugar Bowl against Virgina Tech in 2004. The Tigers won some ugly games, but swept ranked SEC rivals LSU, Georgia, and Tennessee (topping the Volunteers twice), before becoming another victim to the bullshit college standings (BCS), which left them out of the National Title Game. Auburn's talent was later recognized when four of their players were selected in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft., three of whom were taken in the top nine.
