With Notre Dame's victory over USC last night, this year's national championship game is already halfway decided. The Irish have willed their way to an undefeated record and the top ranking in the past two BCS standings. They feature a tough nosed defense that can stifle any offensive attack and an offense that has improved each week with a freshman QB at the helm.
Lying in the weeds is the mighty SEC with two of the top three teams in the nation meeting in its annual conference championship. In fact, the SEC championship this year is essentially a play-in game to see who will meet the Irish in Miami.
Representing the SEC East is Georgia, who since defeating Florida in October, have catapulted up the BCS rankings each week.
Out of the West division comes an Alabama team that before dropping a game to Johnny Manziel and the Aggies, was number one for the majority of the season.
Now it's no secret that the SEC has dominated the national title game in the past several years and with another SEC team destined to participate in the BCS championship this year, it's fair to speculate which one would give the conference a better chance to continue it's streak of domination.
UGA has some real talent on their roster but it's hard to overlook the Crimson Tide for several reasons.
