To be fair to Kelly, it ain't just his offense that gets disrupted by a good defensive line, it's EVERY offense.

When someone in that championship game can win the "SEC D-Line vs. your O'line" battle, they'll break the streak.

The games are only as lopsided as that battle.

Not gonna lie. That battle was faaar more lopsided than the final score. Auburn dominated that line play on both sides of the ball. And for as bad as Oregon QB played I can't for the life of me understand how thye don't win that game by 20+. Newton was poor, but he wasn't that poor.

Strange game. Should never have been nearly that close given the discrepancy at the line of scrimmage.

This is true.

Can someone name me a conference known for its excellent officiating?

This ^^^^^^^

Similarly, the Buckeyes D-line destroyed the Arkansas O-line....and a different streak was broken.
