Game Day ^UPDATE: ASS-WHUPPIN: Alabama routs Notre Dame, wins 3rd BCS title in last 4 years



Let's start off by saying that there will be no blowout in the BCS National Championship game. You aren't going to witness Alabama beating up Notre Dame by 30-plus points and the Irish certainly aren't scoring eight touchdowns in a shootout. Much like last year's title game, this will likely be a defensive slug-fest that features a low-scoring affair.

Even though Notre Dame is obviously not an SEC team, it is built very much like one, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. Allowing only 286 total yards a game is good for sixth in the country and is only 40 more yards than Alabama gives up on average. The team simply gets after it and has been the majority of the reason the Irish will even be playing in this contest.

So why is there no possible chance Alabama blows the doors off Notre Dame come January?

Well, the logic is quite simple: great defensive teams don't get blown out. It doesn't matter how lousy the offense may be or how terrible your special teams is, if you have a defense that is elite status, there is almost no way that you are going to be embarrassed in the football game.

Just look at all of the top defenses of the 2012 college football season.

I personally think it is going to be a very close game.

I agree with both of these. But even though Alabama is Alabama, I refuse to call #1 Notre Dame winning an upset.

Both teams have an excellent defense. It will probably be more of an old school type of game; so I imagine turnovers, field position, & who run the ball better will decide it.

Notre Dame is better than people have given them credit for all year. Their defense is awesome.
SEC is overrated this year as a group.
However, give Saban a month to prepare and he usually is very tough to beat.

Well, well, well. I see penis envy is still flourishing among my non-SEC brethren.

Most people say the NC game was played on 12/1 in Atlanta. I agree. ND's defense is good enough, but their offense isn't. Bama 27-ND 10.

Maybe SEC fans are saying that. No one else is saying that.
