TV Coverage: ESPN
Preview: One of the most interesting notes about this yearís college football season is that number-one ranked Notre Dame was nowhere on the Top 25 anyone's college poll at the beginning of the 2012 season. Fighting Irish Coach Brian Kelly guided his team to become the nationís top gridiron warriors. The Fighting Irish beat seven rivals as well as four top-ranked opponents on their way to a perfect 12-0 season, grabbing that number one overall ranking in the country
However, Alabama does remain the reigning national champion. The Tide managed to roll to 11-1 season. They went on to defeat the No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs in the Southeastern Conference Championship game securing the number two slot in the nation and a trip to Miami to take on the Fighting Irish.
This is a game that features the countryís top two defenses. But, look for Tide QB A.J. McCarron and RBs Eddie Lacy and T.J. Yeldon to help deliver back-to-back titles for Alabama.
