The SEC title game seemingly doubles as a national semifinal on a relatively consistent basis.
This year is no different, as the winner of the Georgia Bulldogs-Alabama Crimson Tide battle on Saturday will move on to the BCS National Championship game to take on a 12-0 Notre Dame Fighting Irish squad.

There is no question that it is very difficult to find players who will give Notre Dame trouble, but there are some out there.
Here are five players who would give Notre Dame fits if they met either of these teams in the national championship game.
