TUSCALOOSA, Alabama — For the second straight week, Alabama is second in the Bowl Championship Series standings. Notre Dame is first, and Georgia occupies the third spot.
No surprise. Alabama (11-1) and Georgia (11-1) will play Saturday in the SEC Championship Game. The winner will advance to the BCS National Championship Game.
The loser will go to the Capital One Bowl or Outback Bowl instead of a BCS bowl game. Florida, which hasn’t qualified for the SEC title game, appears a shoo-in for a BCS bowl.
Alabama coach Nick Saban said he isn’t a fan of that scenario for the Tide and Georgia.
“It doesn’t seem quite right,” he said. “But it is what it is. … I don’t feel good about it for our football team or their football team, either one. But it is what it is.”
