So here is the latest BCS poll and my personal favorites, Nebraska, Arizona and Iowa continue their climb back to the top. Okay so maybe they aren't there yet but they will be by the end of the season. In fact all three are still at the top of their conferences.
So how does that result in my conclusion this early in the season that it will be Alabama versus Nebraska for the national championship when they are ranked 6 and 7 in the BCS poll? Oregon loses to Arizona, Auburn loses to Alabama, TCU, Boise State and Utah continue to drop in the polls because they do not have the competitive schedules of Alabama and Nebraska.
Besides, one of the best rivalaries of the 1970's and '80's were the bowl games when the two schools squared off under the legendary coaches Bear Bryant and Bob Devany and a national championship was always on the line. Anyway, that's my take, what is yours?
