Notre Dame has punched its ticket to the BCS National Championship and is waiting on the winner of the SEC Championship to join in a trip to Miami. The winner of the game between Alabama and Georgia will battle the Irish for all of the marbles in the first week of January.
And with no games left to be played for head coach Brian Kelly and company, the team can sit and enjoy the game like the rest of us.
But who should Notre Dame be rooting for on Saturday afternoon?
Notre Dame would likely tell you that it doesn't matter who is the opponent, but there should always be a preference. One team presents many advantages and disadvantages that the other may not.
Would you rather play the 1985 Chicago Bears or go up against the 2008 Detroit Lions?
I think that is an easy question for any logical football fan.
Here are the pros and cons to playing either Alabama or Georgia, and who the Irish should be pulling for.
