Alabama vs. Notre Dame: Will the Fighting Irish Defense Slow Down the Tide?

Barrett Sallee@BarrettSalleeSEC Football Lead WriterDecember 19, 2012

Our B/R in Miami series already previewed how Notre Dame's offense can attack Alabama's defense when the two heavyweights meet in Sun Life Stadium on Jan. 7 in the BCS National Championship Game.

But will the vaunted front seven of the Fighting Irish slow down Alabama's two-headed rushing attack featuring 1,000-yard backs Eddie Lacy and T.J. Yeldon? 

Barrett Sallee, Marc Kohn, Adam Kramer, Michael Felder and Elika Sadeghi preview the Notre Dame defense vs. the Alabama offense in this edition of "The Program."
