Can a one-loss Alabama football team make the BCS National Championship Game without a lot of help?
The Sporting News’ Bill Bender says it’s possible. Bender writes the one-loss Tide might even leap over an unbeaten Notre Dame.
A teaser from Bender’s piece:
The Crimson Tide will stay at the front of the one-loss parade. Given the advantages in schedule and point differential along with the SEC championship spotlight, there’s a chance—albeit a small one—a one-loss Alabama team could leap-frog an undefeated Kansas State or Notre Dame, especially if Oregon trips up. The Crimson Tide have a better chance of pulling that move on the Irish because of the point differential. Imagine the national reaction if that happens.
