Florida State says it received more than 34,000 ticket requests from boosters for the Vizio BCS National Championship.

No. 1 Florida State will face No. 2 Auburn for the national title Jan. 6 in Pasadena, Calif. The Seminoles' ticket office said the 34,000 requests were nearly double the school's allotment.

FSU boosters needed to have their requests in by 5 p.m. ET Tuesday. The school is determining how many tickets each person will receive based on booster levels. Boosters can buy tickets at the face value of $325 or $385.

Florida State, the nation's only undefeated team, will face 12-1 Auburn, champion of the SEC, which has won the past seven national championships.

Florida State will play for the national title for the first time since the 2000 season, and quarterback Jameis Winston might have to stop in New York to pick up the Heisman Trophy before heading to Southern California. The Seminoles will be looking for their first BCS title since 1999.

Auburn has gone from worst in the SEC to first and is a victory away from its second national title in four seasons.
