NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) -- The inside of Auburn's BCS championship media guide has a graphic labeling the Tigers a ''Team of Destiny.'' Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher isn't sure about that.

Auburn's magical run to the title game Monday is described in many ways. ''Lucky'' is one of the adjectives used. Either way, Auburn was on the right end of narrow victories against Alabama and Georgia that propelled it into the championship.

Fisher, however, isn't buying the destiny spiel.

Fisher said, ''God didn't put on this earth and give us a destiny. God put us on this earth to create your own destiny by the decisions you make and what you do. Destiny is great, but I believe you create your own destiny by what you do and the decisions you make every day daily.''
