Preview of the 2010 BCS Championship Game

I hate to say this, but I will be rooting for Alabama in the BCS Championship Game. Both teams are well-matched statistically, but I witnessed that a Saban-coached team is designed to barely beat lesser opponents and demolish upper-tier opponents. Saban has built what could be a dynasty that will run right down the throat of the Texas defense. Texas’ only hope is Colt McCoy. After years of playing second fiddle to Sam Bradford and Tim Tebow, Colt McCoy has one chance to validate his NCAA-record winning percentage. He cannot make up for underperforming against Bradford and Tebow over the years and he definitely cannot make up for stinking up the place against Nebraska, but he sure can make up for a lot today against Alabama. That being said, I still think Alabama will crush Texas 48-27. SEC!
