BCS Championship 2013: Alabama vs. Notre Dame Open Thread

What should we watch for in tonight's BCS National Championship?

Mike Ehrmann

Finally, the BCS National Championship is here. Notre Dame last played November 24, when they beat USC 22-13, and Alabama a week later, with a 32-28 victory over Georgia for the SEC Championship.

Both teams have had plenty of time to get healthy, study their opponent, and game plan from every angle possible. From a match-up standpoint, we've got an SEC powerhouse that will try to dominate the trenches and out-muscle their opponent, versus a more athletic team that will try to out-finesse theirs.

From a scouting perspective, Dan Kadar has a list of players to watch for tonight - LINK - so make sure to pay attention to some players that could on the board when the Chicago Bears make their pick.
