Alabama Crimson Tide: 2013 BCS Champions and College Football Dynasty
Deja vu all over again? Once again, the Alabama Crimson Tide are college football champions. The Tide are the 7th straight SEC team to win the National Championship.
Led by Nick Saban, the Crimson Tide won back to back NCAA football titles by easily defeating previously unbeaten Notre Dame Fighting Irish 42-14 in the 2013 BCS Championship Game. Alabama has now won 3 of the past 4 NCAA titles, and Saban has 4 titles as he also previously won as coach of the LSU Tigers.
The Tide needed some luck to get back to the title game this year. After they lost to Texas A&M at home, Alabama faithful happily watched the Oregon Ducks and Kansas State Wildcats get upset within hours of each other to open the door for the Tide to again rise up to the coveted #2 spot in the BCS poll. Alabama assured a return trip to the title game by winning the SEC title by defeating the Georgia Bulldogs.
We don't see a lot of dynasties in sports anymore but the Alabama Crimson Tide definitely quality with their 3rd championship in 4 years. And again in the 2013 season, we can expect the Tide to again be challenging for another title. Can coach Chip Kelly again get the Fighting Irish back to this level in 2013? Less likely.
