Top-ranked Notre Dame finally got down to the serious business of getting ready to play defending national champion Alabama in the BCS title game on Jan. 7.
The University of Alabama and Notre Dame University are two of the most storied schools in the history of college football. But, with 25 national championships between them, some fans are struggling with trying to figure out who to cheer for based on who is the lesser evil.
The college football season will come to an end in a little less than two weeks in South Florida when the Alabama Crimson Tide face off against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the Bowl Championship Series National Championship game at Sun Life Stadium.
Jeremy Shelley kicked five field goals and Trent Richardson broke a 34-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter as No. 2 Alabama beat No. 1 LSU 21-0 on Monday night — the first shutout in BCS title game history.
Trent Richardson ran for a career-high 181 yards and two touchdowns, breaking tackles and carrying defenders along the way, and the third-ranked Crimson Tide rolled the Gators 38-10 Saturday night in an early season matchup of Southeastern Conference heavyweights.
