To get back to the BCS national championship game, Alabama still has tough games against Mississippi State, LSU and whomever it would face in the SEC championship game.
However, given the way the Tide are playing, it's hard to see any team knocking off Nick Saban's squad.
The question is, if Alabama does make it down to Miami Gardens as expected, who will it play in the big game?
Right now, it looks like Kansas State is the top challenger.
The Wildcats have arguably the biggest game-changer in the country, QB Collin Klein, running their offense. Plus, they have enough veteran playmakers on both sides of the ball such as LB Arthur Brown, RB John Hubert, FS Ty Zimmerman, WR Chris Harper and DT Vai Lutui to beat any team remaining on their schedule.
One thing's for sure, it sure would be fun to watch the loaded Alabama defense try to contain Klein on college football's biggest stage.
