The 2013 BCS National Championship Game is just hours away. We’re sure you have so many questions. We’re here to help. (For an X’s and O’s breakdown, click through to our BCS preview hub.)
• What’s all this, then? Ready for a seventh consecutive national title for an SEC team? What about Notre Dame’s return to glory finally materializing in full? What about the possibility of Alabama holding a legitimate and pretty irrefutable dynasty claim? You’re not ready for any of these? That’s TOO DANG BAD, Lulabelle. The sidewalk ends here.
• Where will this game be played? The national title game rotates into the Orange Bowl location this year, which means Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, home field of the Miami Dolphins and Miami Hurricanes, and beloved by us because it was once Land Shark Stadium, named for a Jimmy Buffett-branded beer.
• Didn’t Nick Saban coach here that one time? We don’t recall. We don’t know what you’re talking about. Don’t look us in the eyes when you ask us that. Just in case.
