SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Top-ranked Notre Dame finally got down to the serious business of getting ready to play defending national champion Alabama in the BCS title game on Jan. 7.
After weeks of some players and coaches traveling the nation for award shows, players finishing up the school year with finals and making trips home for Christmas, Notre Dame had its hardest hitting practice Saturday since its 22-13 victory over USC on Nov. 24 in the regular-season finale. Kelly plans another physical practice Sunday.

It is so stupid that these teams have to wait so long to play this game. How can they possibly be at there best without playing under live game conditions. They need a playoff system. Once again, money rules the roost!
My favorite Bama vs Notre Dame play
Boy O Boy!
Have to go with ND simply because of the SEC/ESPN lovefest. The backlash is growing.
I’m probably in the minority, but I wish for a return to the bowl system. Each bowl has its own heritage and traditions, and they shouldn’t be reduced to mere playoffs. Let the sports writers and the coaches pick the national champions.
ROLL TIDE!!!!!!!!!! GO SEC!!!!!!!!!!!!
Alabama, LSU, Mississippi State, OLE MISS, Georgia, Florida, Vanderbilt, Texas A&M, South Carolina
Backlash, my a**. If you want to stop the “lovefest”, beat an SEC team in a BCS title game.
Are we trying for membership in the Elitist Society?
In order for any team to be allowed to play in the BCS title game it should have proved its competence by beating a SEC team during the regular season. ;)
Hey, don’t ruin our secret plan. We figure if the SEC wins another BCS championship, the rest of the country will kick states with an SEC team out of the nation. Instant secession without a fight!
I hope and pray that Bama kicks their Obama-loving ass. It’s hard to have any respect for an institution that’s turns it’s back on its own faith. Father Jenkins is a disgrace to all good Catholics.
The irony of that t-shirt is the fact that there are probably as many or more mobile homes in Indiana than there are in Bama.
ROLL TIDE!!! Make us proud.
It won’t even be close. Bama by two touchdowns!
Terry Saben was right. The pressure to win almost overcomes the “Joy of Victory”. There are prolly as many “Barners” (Auburn fans), as Notre Dame fans hoping for a victory.
