This should be a great game tonight.
I will take 'bama in a close one. Key to the game is the Alabama O-line against the ND front seven. I think Alabama will have some difficulty running the ball against the ND defense...though I hope Alabama trucks them.
If Alabama gets the run game going then ND will have some difficulty. Alabama needs to contain the ND running game and keep the ball out of Eifert's hands.
That's how I see it.
I would never root for a rival, especially Notre Dame, so.....
