Alabama moves on to play Notre Dame for BCS title

Posted: Updated:

Alabama vs. Notre Dame. The BCS championship game couldn't get much bigger.

The Crimson Tide locked up a spot in the title game in Miami on Jan. 7 with a 32-28 victory over Georgia in the SEC championship game Saturday.

Now the hype can begin for what could be the most-watched BCS title game since the system was implemented in 1998. It'd be hard to find two more popular programs and a more enticing matchup.

The top-ranked Fighting Irish have won eight AP national titles - matching Alabama for the most - but none since 1988. They'll be playing in their first BCS championship game.

Alabama is making its third BCS title game appearance in four years. The Crimson Tide is trying to become the first team to win back-to-back BCS titles, and three in four years.
