MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

How would you like to get your hands on a free travel package that includes hotel, food and tickets to the BCS National Championship in Pasadena, CA?

A Montgomery high school held a raffle with that as the prize, but it wasn't an Auburn fan who won.

Norris Watson scored two tickets and travel accommodations to the big game, but the catch is, he is an Alabama fan.

He's actually part of a house divided. His wife is a die-hard Auburn fan, and he says the trip to the Rose Bowl is the best Christmas gift he could give her.

Watson says he only purchased one ticket for the raffle, which turned out to be a very successful fundraiser for the Saint James golf team.

Watson's ticket proved to be lucky and he came away with free flights, transportation to and from the game, two tickets, and free meals -- a $5,500 value.
"I wanted to go about three years.. About three years ago when we played, when Alabama played; was unable to go: couldn't afford to make the trip. My wife's a big Auburn fan so, this is something that uh... It is bittersweet for me, but she's going to have a great time and of course, SEC I hope prevails and does a great job, as we have, I guess the last seven years,'  he told WSFA.
 
As for his prediction for the championship game Watson thinks Auburn's running game will be too much for Florida State and that the Tigers will come out on top.
