B4: 2013 Discover BCS National Championship – Notre Dame vs. Alabama

The National Championship Game will truly be a clash of the titans for all 80 minutes of regulation and then some. While the clock is running, the Fighting Irish and Crimson Tide each boast more national championships than anyone else, depending on who you ask. The two programs are among the most storied and most revered; the most loved and most hated. Each can look to a tradition of legendary head coaches, and each coach in this game seeks to etch his name into that history. Alabama’s Nick Saban is arguably already there, with two championships to his credit in three years at Alabama. Brian Kelly seeks to return Notre Dame to the Promised Land in a world where no one on the team has experienced the Irish at the top of the mountain. The matchup between the Band of the Fighting Irish and the Million Dollar Band is similarly venerable, with both bands having hoisted the Sudler and each representing a history and tradition at least as proud as their football team’s. While the Orange Bowl proper cedes its halftime to a pop performer, both bands will see both pregame and halftime field time in the national championship game. Whether the Tide rolls or the thunder is shaken down from the sky, there is no doubt the earth will move when these two meet.
