In January of 2013, in the early hours of the night, the two mightiest teams from the 2012 college football season will square off in Miami, Florida, in the BCS National Championship Game. It’s one of the greatest scenes in all of sports.
Last year, Nick Saban marched his Crimson warriors into New Orleans, dominated his opponent for four straight quarters and jolted back to tornado-ravaged Tuscaloosa with the crystal ball in tow. He gave the city something to celebrate and made clear to the world that Alabama had regained its status as a football empire. It was the ‘Tide’s second title in three years, and he captured his third ring.
But this is a new year, and I’m certain that Nick Saban’s colleagues are tired of seeing him be the boss of college football. Some conferences, particularly the ACC and the Big East, are without question tired of watching the SEC dominate the championship games. And we all know there are fan bases out there foaming at the mouth to secure a year’s worth of bragging rights.
So, I’m going to flip the script a little bit—a little bit—and put together some potential BCS National Championship matchups that could be very entertaining for fans of college football.
