No game will be more anticipated than that game on the night of Jan. 10. At 8:30 PM, the two best teams in the country will buck heads, fighting for the ultimate crown of college football's best team and the ring that is ever so desired.
Although those teams are still yet to be determined, we can take a stab at who it might be. It's unrealistic to play out the rest of the season in our mind, but as of today, we have a pretty good picture on who might be around come ring-time.
Like always, Alabama looms large as the No. 1 team in the country. Behind them, however, are a pack of teams hungry for a chance to take home the title this year, including Boise State, Oregon, Ohio State, and TCU just to name a few contenders.
Who would you want to see collide in Glendale?
In what may be the ultimate measuring stick for the boys in blue, the Broncos would finally get their chance to show the nation what they are really made of.
And against none other than the defending national champions.
In this scenario, not only would hard-noised football be produced, but the perfect ending to an already amazing Cinderella story.
This BCS championship would not only give the fans great football, but a great storyline as well.
Behind the Cinderella story, there wouldn't be a bigger game out there than this one.
A matchup between the best of the SEC and Big Ten would not only put out a fantastic football game, but would give television sky-high ratings, and of course, loads of cash. And we all know what matters most in this business.
The Buckeyes' athletic style of football meeting Alabama's hard-nosed and physical style would provide football fans with four quarters of some of the best football they've seen.
In the end, however, it's all about the ratings. This is what the fans want to see...and the moneymakers.
It may take some help from the other big boys, but an Auburn vs. Oregon national championship would offer some of the best play-makers the country has to offer.
LaMichael James and Cameron Newton are both Heisman candidates on their respective teams. Each program is in the top ten trying to make it to the top by the end of the season.
While it may seem a bit out of reach, especially with a tough SEC slate for the Tigers, it isn't impossible. Newton can do it all...and that may mean leading his team to a NC game vs. the Ducks. And if that does just happen, it would be one to watch.
Everyone knows why this would be one would be a classic. There's no denying how exciting this rematch would actually be.
If you don't remember, think Statue of Liberty, wedding proposal, and an upset that has gone down in history: the 2007 Fiesta Bowl.
This game would be a very interesting matchup between a team trying to make a name for itself and a team looking for revenge, and at the same time, a ring for Bob Stoops.
Two of the nation's most talked-about programs would match up head to head in this shootout.
Not to mention, two of the nation's best quarterbacks would compete for bragging rights and the biggest prize of them all. With Pryor's athleticism and Moore's rocket arm, it would truly be a test of which style would prevail over the other.
The Buckeyes play a mean style of football while the Broncos possess quickness and effort. Just like the quarterback play, it would be a clash of two different styles of football. Exciting football.
Again, another storied past between two programs that would mean plenty on the line in this contest.
Nebraska, desperately in need for a ring, would take on the Roll Tide, who have had college football by the hair as of late. A matchup between a Northern and Southern powerhouse would be very intriguing and attractive for fans all over.
The Nebraska defense vs. the Alabama offense would be a matchup I'd kill to see, as both are some of the best in the country. Seeing Mark Ingram crash up against the Nebraska defensive line is something any fan would die to see on the final day.
Although they don't have the flashy blue turf of the Broncos, by no means is TCU a weaker program. In fact, arguments can be made that TCU has every right to play in the national championship as Boise does.
It's always been a question among fans as to which under-the-radar program is the better one. There really is no real measuring stick to compare these two, but this showdown would be the ultimate answer.
Oh, yeah...there's also something called a national title involved here as well.
The winner would be crowned the superior of the land, and the loser would be subject to the same old mid-major remarks they have been hearing for years when mentioned along with the Big Six.
Thanks to the styles of the two, this would be another close game.
Pryor and Oregon's Darron Thomas are similar quarterbacks in that they have the legs and arm to win a football game. Calling them each a threat may be an understatement.
Watching these two, combined with LaMichael James, would make for a great football game. And, of course, a Pac-10-Big Ten battle that wouldn't be overlooked.
The Sooners still have plenty of questions to answer before they are considered a national championship-caliber team, but behind Landry Jones, they have a great shot to get there.
If they run the table in the Big 12, watch out for them. And, like most people, Alabama is predicted to get back to the big game as well.
If that happens, it'll be interesting to see just how good the Sooners are this year without wonderboy Sam Bradford. In the end, Alabama will probably take home the ring again, but not without a fight from the boys under Stoops.
TCU is one of the most exciting teams in the country to watch.
Their defensive plays with speed and toughness, and against Pryor's offense, this national championship wouldn't be downplayed.
Although some would whine about TCU's firepower or lack of competition, there wouldn't be any reason to complain after these two hit the gridiron. If your someone who loves football, this is a game you want to see.
If you're looking for ratings, you'll have to wait another year until Urban Meyer has found the Third Coming of Christ.
