Alabama obliterated Notre Dame 42-14 to win their second-straight BCS Title and their third in the past four seasons. Notre Dame could not execute phase one of its game plan: stop the run. Yeldon and Lacy combined for 247 yards and two touchdowns on 42 carries. This game was never competitive. Roll Tide.
Pro tip: When the media hive comes to the same conclusion without a tangible justification and that conclusion coincides with a strong majority of public betting, fade hard.
