Bowl Game Fever Heating Up or Breaking?

Rose Bowl
Average Price Per Ticket $330.00 | Get In’s $129.00
Rose Bowl Thursday Jan 1st 2:00pm
The 2015 Rose Bowl takes its place for the first time as the one of the two College Football Semifinal games as the Granddaddy of the them all will host the Number 2 and 3 seeds the Oregon Ducks and Florida State Seminoles. The current Rose Bowl ticket average price on the secondary market is $330.00 with the get in the door price of $129.00 per ticket which is a 40% decline in get in the door prices from the 2014 Rose Bowl game between the Michigan State Spartans and Stanford Cardinal’s.

Although the 2015 Rose Bowl will feature controversial Florida State quarterback Jamies Winston and the Heisman Trophy Winner Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota and is the first College Bowl game that is for the new College Football Playoff system prices or still down compared to four of the last five Rose Bowl Games. One of the most significant reasons for the lower price on Rose Bowl tickets this year is Florida State Seminoles fans don’t travel as well do to the warm climate to warm climate comparison. While having strong followings at home games as well as big games close to home certain teams fans don’t tend to travel well. The average temperature in Florida is 82 degrees while in Los Angeles the average temperature is 75 degrees. A team that plays its games in cold weather such as the Michigan State Spartans whose average temperature might be 30F would want to go for a vacation into warm sunny Pasadena.

There is a look at the Last Five Rose Bowl Ticket Price Averages.
Rose Bowl Ticket Prices

Sugar Bowl
Alabama Crimson Tide vs Ohio State Buckeyes
Average Price Per Ticket $450.00 | Get In’s $220.00
Mercedes-Benz Superdome Thursday Jan 1st 7:30pm
The 2015 Sugar Bowl is one of the semi-final games in the new College Football Playoff system and with the Crimson Tide and Buckeyes who both have strong traveling fan bases the Sugar Bowl Ticket prices have climbed to an average of $450 on the secondary market with get in the door prices starting at $220 per ticket a 58% higher price then to get into the 2015 Rose Bowl.

Ohio State Buckeyes fans are a strong traveling diehard fan base which has helped raise Sugar Bowl tickets on the secondary market by over $120 per ticket since they were announced as one of the two teams in the semi-final game at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans LA.

Fiesta Bowl
Arizona Wildcats vs Boise State Broncos
Average Price $140.00 | Get In’s $63.00
University of Phoenix Stadium Wed Dec 31st 2:00pm.
Fiesta Bowl ticket prices are the cheapest for one of the Bowl Games and will most likely dip down even more as it gets closer to the 31st. The 2014 Fiesta Bowl ticket prices are almost 70% lower than the 2013 game between Baylor and UCF. If you live near the University of Phoenix Stadium and are a Wildcats fan even waiting until the day of the game to buy tickets might be your best bet to get in to the Bowl game under $50.00 per ticket.

Orange Bowl
Georgia Yellow Jackets vs Mississippi State Bulldogs
Average Price $90.00 | Get In’s $5.00
Sun Life Stadium Wednesday Dec 31st 8:00pm
Orange Bowl Ticket prices for get in’s and average are the cheapest of the big “bowl games” this year. Orange Bowl Get In’s at $5.00 per ticket are 47.8% higher than a gallon of gas in Atlanta and 41.4% higher than a gallon of gas in Mississippi. The distance from Atlanta to Miami Gardens is 650.4 miles and if your car averages just 25 miles per gallon it would cost roughly 62.14 to drive to the Orange Bowl. If you wanted to drive the 883 miles from Mississippi to Miami Gardens it would cost you roughly 73.07 in gas.

College Football Playoff National Championship
Teams TBA
Average Price $2387 | Get In’s $863.00
AT&T Stadium — Arlington, TX on Mon Jan 12, 2015 at 12:00pm

Rose Bowl

Contenders to potentially play in the 2015 Rose Bowl

After a wild week in college football, the Associated Press Top 25 has a drastically new look this week, with several major college football playoff contenders suffering losses. In one of the most memorable weeks in college football history, Alabama, Oklahoma, Oregon, UCLA Bruins and Texas A & M all suffered losses, greatly impacting the outlook for the inaugural college football playoff. This season the Rose Bowl in Pasadena will hold one of the two college football semifinal games.

Here’s a look at the top contenders to potentially play in the Rose Bowl after the major upsets of the past week:

Florida State: The defending national champions take over the top spot in the AP poll and if they can go undefeated, should be a shoo-in for the national semifinals. Although the Seminoles have been undefeated, they haven’t been as impressive as a year ago. Two weeks ago the FSU gave up 41 points to North Carolina State, the second time they’ve given up over thirty points this season. The big test for Florida State will come on October 18 when they host undefeated Notre Dame.

Auburn: With Alabama losing the Auburn Tigers are now the highest ranked SEC team and currently in the driver’s seat to compete for the National title. This past week Auburn steamrolled the LSU Tigers in one of the more impressive performances of the college football season thus far. In a brutal upcoming schedule the Tigers have five remaining teams currently tanked in the top fifteen on their schedule. If they can somehow navigate their schedule they’ll be a leading candidate to potentially play in the 2015 Rose Bowl.

Mississippi State: The Bulldogs have made an impressive rise to the top of the AP Poll with consecutive wins over top ten teams, LSU and Texas A & M. The Bulldogs can cement their ranking with a defeat of Auburn this coming Saturday. In addition to Auburn the Bulldogs still play Alabama and Ole Miss, both ranked in the top ten. In quarterback Dak Prescott the Bulldogs have one of the most exciting players in all of college football.

Mississippi: In a remarkable turn of events, Mississippi joints Mississippi State in the AP top 5 after an impressive home victory over Alabama. In their first test of the season, Ole Miss came back from a halftime deficit to defeat Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide. They’ll be tested immediately this coming weekend when they travel to College Station to face the Texas A & M Aggies.
Baylor: With Oklahoma losing the Baylor Bears are now the highest ranked Big 12 team, with a real shot to go undefeated. The Bears will get immediately tested this weekend when they host 9th ranked TCU. The Horned Frogs are coming off of an impressive victory over Oklahoma. Baylor has one of the most dynamic offenses in all of college football under quarterback Bryce Petty.

Notre Dame: The Irish aren’t blowing teams out, but they are collecting victories over solid opponents, most recently their defeat of Stanford this weekend. Notre Dame has two remaining ranked teams on their schedule, Florida State and Arizona State, as well as the season finale versus USC. If the Irish can manage to go undefeated they’ll have a strong case for the college football playoffs.

Arizona Wildcats: The most surprising team on the list, and the team that made the biggest rise in the polls, is Arizona. The undefeated Wildcats knocked off second ranked Oregon in Eugene this past weekend, vaulting them from unranked to number ten in the country. Arizona has upcoming games versus UCLA, USC and Arizona State on their schedule. Although it’s unlikely, if the Wildcats can go undefeated they’ll have a strong case for one of the two national semifinal games.

LA Galaxy versus Manchester United

Rose Bowl Game

Rose Bowl

With United States soccer fans energized by this year’s world cup and the strong United States performance, passion for the world’s game is at an all-time high in the United States. While much of the country has taken years to build a passionate soccer fan base, Southern California has long been a hotbed for the “beautiful game”. Long-time soccer fans and those new to the will have a fantastic opportunity to see one of the most respected coaches in the world, and some of the most famous players in the world, compete at the Rose Bowl on July 23 when Manchester United takes on the LA Galaxy.

Purchase LA Galaxy Tickets Vs Manchester United Tickets

This week the Galaxy released new details on the long awaited event. Although Manchester United’s full travel roster has yet to be released, the majority of their superstars should be in attendance at the Rose Bowl. One of the most recognizable sports franchises in the world, Manchester United will bring a roster to Southern California that includes Wayne Rooney, David De Gea, Shinji Kagawa, Juan Mata, Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez and Antonio Valencia. In addition to the established superstars, newly signed Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw will also be part of the traveling squad.



Manchester United will also debut a new manager, current Dutch National Team manager Louis van Gaal. The veteran manager is one of the most respected managers in all of professional soccer, having just led Holland to a World Cup semifinal, where they lost on penalty kicks to Lionel Messi and Argentina. He’ll begin his tenure as Manchester United manager, replacing the sacked David Moyes, who managed United to a disappointing season in 2013-2014, failing to qualify for the UEFA Champions League for the first time in several years. Moyes replaced the legendary Alex Ferguson, considered one of the greatest managers in the history of the sport. Van Gaal will have big shoes to fill, as did Moyes, but he’ll have a motivated roster looking to regain United’s customary spot in the Premier League standings.



Leading the way will be Wayne Rooney, one of the most recognizable stars in world soccer. Rooney had a short spell in Brazil this summer as part of a disappointing English National Team that failed to make it out of the group stage of the World Cup. In ten years as a Manchester United player Rooney has scored 216 goals. Rooney will be joined in the lineup by high priced signee Ander Herrera, who United paid 28 million pounds for this summer, and young left back Luke Shaw, who United made the highest paid teenager in world football this summer for a fee rumored to be around 30 million pounds. Shaw has an attacking style and has been compared to former Tottenham and current Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale.



After a slow start the Galaxy are on a solid run of play, unbeaten in six consecutive MLS matches. When the Galaxy face off with United their lineup will feature two players familiar with many on the Manchester United Roster, Robbie Keane and Landon Donovan. Former United States National Team member Robbie Rogers and current National Team defender Omar Gonzalez will also take part in the big matchup. The Galaxy are coached by former National Team coach Bruce Arena. The game will kick off at 7:30 PM.

The official on sale for the Monster Tour Eminem Rihanna Rose Bowl concert will be on March 28th at ticketmaster The concert will sell out even at the size of the Rose Bowl since Eminem hasn’t toured in a years and there is only hope and rumors about any type of solo tour. Rihanna fans have the same issue of when will she tour again. Its Los Angeles so anything can happen and with Doctor Dre hopefully releasing his long awaited album and Riahnna and Drake together it would be great to see the two shows filled with some great collaborative possibilities.

Keys To The 2014 BCS Championship Game

Rose Bowl Game

Rose Bowl

With the 100th Rose Bowl in the books thoughts now turn to Monday’s BCS Title game on the very same field. The Rose Bowl, host of the most venerable bowl game, has the honor of hosting the final BCS National Championship game. Florida State, led by Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston, enters the game as the favorite to take home the title. With Monday looming, here’s a look at the three biggest things to watch:

Can Auburn pressure Jameis Winston?

Florida State has an experienced and healthy offensive line. If the Auburn Tigers are unable to pressure Winston with their without sending extra rushers they could be in for a long game. Expect Auburn to try to concede the shorter pass plays to Florida State and attempt to eliminate the game-breaking big plays. Winston has thrived in the face of pressure this season and the best way to defend him may be an effort to make Florida State work the ball down the field while not conceding the longer pass plays. If Auburn can force Florida State into field goal attempts in the red zone by utilizing the shorter field when the Seminoles get close to the goal line they may be able to outscore the Seminoles.

Can Florida State slow down the Auburn rushing attack?

Behind the trifecta of Tre Mason, Nick Marshall and Corey Grant the Auburn Tigers have the best rushing attack in college football, averaging 336 yards per game in the regular season, including a dominating 545 yards versus Missouri in the BCS title game. Auburn Head Coach Gus Malzahn is the master at keeping teams off-balanced and gashing them with a variety of rushing plays. He’ll face a Florida State team that allowed only 10.7 points per game this season, albeit against a less than powerful schedule. For Auburn to pull the upset they’ll need to hold Florida State to field goals rather than touchdowns while overpowering the Seminoles on the ground. A successful Auburn rushing attack can have the dual effect of wearing down the Seminoles while using valuable clock. The clearest path to victory for Auburn is to over-power Florida State with some classic SEC-style football.

Is Florida State ready for the physicality of Auburn?

The question looks silly on the outset with Florida State’s deep reservoir of talent, which rivals the top SEC schools. It’s a valid question though, mainly due to the schedule that Florida State has played this season. One only has to look back at the recent BCS history to understand the advantage the SEC has had in physicality during their near decade of dominance. High scoring offenses from power conferences such as Oregon and Oklahoma have found that the SEC often brings a higher level of size, strength and athleticism. The key for Florida State will be to weather the initial jitters and stay consistent with what they do well and their game plan. The Seminoles have as many future NFL players as the Auburn Tigers do, as well as a significant advantage and quarterback. If Florida State can hold onto the football and slow down the Auburn running game they should win going away.By: Chris Cabrera

Will Ohio State face Stanford 2014 Rose Bowl?

With just three weeks remaining in the regular season the race for the Rose Bowl is taking form. This year’s Rose Bowl will be held January 1st in Pasadena. Here’s a look at the current race in the Big Ten and Pac 12.

Big Ten: Ohio State is undefeated, winners of 21 straight, and has a clear path to take home first place in the Big Ten Leaders division. Due to their victory over second place Wisconsin the Buckeyes would have to lose two of their remaining games to not make the Big Ten title game. In the Legends division, the race is still wide open, with Michigan State the one team that controls their own destiny. Michigan State is undefeated in the division but has three relatively tough games remaining. The Spartans travel to Northwestern and Nebraska followed by a home matchup with Minnesota. If they win out, they’re in. If they lose one or two games the Spartans open the path for Nebraska or Minnesota to take the Legends Division. The Minnesota Gophers are the surprise Big Ten team, winners of four straight conference games. The Gophers have already defeated Nebraska and finish up the regular season at Michigan State. If the Spartans lose at Northwestern or Nebraska and Minnesota wins out the Gophers would advance to the Big Ten title game. Nebraska, who won at Michigan this past weekend, hosts Michigan State in Lincoln on Saturday. If the Huskers defeat the Spartans and win their remaining games they’ll take the Legends Division.

Ohio State will be heavily favored in the Big Ten title game, no matter who represents the Legends Division. If Alabama and Florida State win out the Rose Bowl will likely feature an undefeated Ohio State versus either Stanford or the Pac 12 South representative.

Pac 12 Conference

Pac 12

Pac 12: With Stanford’s victory over Oregon on Thursday the Cardinal control their own destiny in the Pac 12 North race. The Cardinal have a tough game with USC this coming weekend but wrap up conference play with a bad California team. They would need to lose both their remaining conference games for Oregon to overcome them, an extremely unlikely scenario. The race in the Pac 12 South is still very much wide open. First place Arizona State will take home the division if they win their remaining games including a key matchup with UCLA. The same goes for UCLA who will once again represent the Pac 12 South in a big rematch versus Stanford if they win out. Third place USC is on a hot streak lately but would need to defeat a good Stanford team this weekend as well as knock off UCLA in the battle of Los Angeles to end the season. Due to USC’s loss at Arizona State the Trojans would still need major help to beat the Sun Devils. Arizona State’s late comeback versus Utah this weekend may have any realistic shot of USC winning the division. If the Trojans can defeat Stanford and win out there is still an outside shot though. ASU still has games remaining versus UCLA and their annual rivalry game with Arizona.

Rose Bowl Projection: It’s tough to see anyone beating Ohio State in the Big Ten title game. The same goes for Stanford in the Pac 12. Look for Stanford to knock off UCLA in the Pac 12 Title game, setting up a very attractive Rose Bowl matchup between the third and fourth ranked teams in the country, Ohio State and Stanford.

BCS National Championship Ends at the Rose Bowl

BCS National ChampionshipIt is all too fitting that the final BCS National Championship game will take place at the Rose Bowl near Los Angeles, California. For several decades the Rose Bowl has been known as the “Granddaddy of Them All”. This phrase was coined years ago when the Rose Bowl game often determined the national championship. This was well before the BCS was part of the college football bowl system. This season the Rose Bowl will host the “Granddaddy of Them All” but it will take place five days after the Rose Bowl game. The Rose Bowl will take place on January 1st while the BCS National Championship will be played on Monday, January 6th, 2013. This is sure to be one of the most sought after tickets in BCS Championship history because it will be the final championship game in the current format.

How the BCS Works

In 1998, the Bowl Championship Series was formed to crown the NCAA college football champion. Prior to the BCS it was often the case that the top two teams in the country did not play for the championship at the end of the season. In the 1980s and 1990s there were several split national championships because bowl games had conference affiliations that did not allow the top two teams to play. In fact, as I child I can remember the #1 team playing the #11 or #12 team in a bowl game. It was not good for the fans nor the sport. This was the reason we have seen the BCS over the last fifteen years. As the college football landscape has evolved it has changed many things about the bowl system. One issue with the current BCS is the computer system that is involved. In the 1980s and 1990s computers did not factor into the ranking system. Today they are a very big part of the BCS ranking system.

Computers are used to gauge many factors related to college football teams. It would be impossible to explain all the metrics. In short, the computers will analyze a team based on the opponents they have played and, more importantly, the opponents they have defeated. Unfortunately, a team cannot determine what other teams do with their schedule. It is also true that college football programs create their schedule years in advance. If Texas schedules LSU in 2013 for the 2018 season they expect LSU to be a top 15 program as they are now. If LSU loses their coach and some of their recruiting classes are not stellar it may very well be that LSU is not a top 50 program when they play Texas five years from now. Is this the fault of the Texas athletic department? Absolutely not. The computers will not like the schedule simply because of circumstances Texas does not control.

Another issue with the current BCS system is the fact that three undefeated teams cannot play in one game. If Alabama, Oregon and Ohio State go undefeated in the 2013 season one of these teams will be left out of the BCS National Championship in January of 2014. This is a huge cause for concern as fans in different parts of the country will have their issues with who gets it. Is Oregon a better team than Ohio State because they play in the Pac-12? Is Alabama better than both Oregon and Ohio State because they have won three of the last four national championships? These are questions that will be answered much differently by different experts and fans.

The ultimate goal of the BCS was to place the #1 and #2 teams in the national championship game. No matter what fans may say about the current BCS there is no argument to be made that the #1 and #2 teams will play on January 6th, 2014. Whether or not these are the two best teams in the country is an argument for another time. In the future this argument will not be valid as there will be a college football playoff in which the top four teams will get in. It will be the first time in college football history that a playoff will be part of the championship process.

The Rose Bowl and the BCS have had a great relationship since 1998. The BCS currently has four bowl games before the BCS National Championship Game. These bowl games are the Rose Bowl, the Fiesta Bowl, the Sugar Bowl and the Orange Bowl. All four locations are in warm weather climates as this attracts fans from all over the country. Many fans from northern teams love to travel south for New Years. Some will even make it a long holiday and travel to Los Angeles, California for the Christmas holiday as well. There are very few bowl games, in general, that are played in cold weather climates as January in the United States is not enjoyable in some of the states that are in the northern part of the country.

Los Angeles and the Rose Bowl

The Rose Bowl Stadium is located in Pasadena, California but most people consider it in Los Angeles. It is in Los Angeles County and the UCLA Bruins plays their home games in this stadium. The first Rose Bowl game was played in Pasadena in 1923 and there has only been one Rose Bowl game played outside of the stadium. The 1942 Rose Bowl was played in Wallace Wade Stadium in Durham, North Carolina. Even the most diehard college football fans do not know this tidbit of trivia.

When visiting Los Angeles for the Rose Bowl and/or BCS National Championship in January 2014 many fans will look in to some of the local attractions. The Parade or Roses will take place during the day on January 1st, 2014 and it is quite the event. If fans are taking the long vacation for both games it would be smart to plan ahead. Even though Los Angeles is one of the largest cities in the world it never hurts to come up with a plan instead of just winging it when you get there. Los Angeles County is huge and those from small towns in the south might be overwhelmed with all the options. Teams in the Southeastern Conference may be excited to go to Hollywood but it takes a little bit of preparation. Those in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Eugene, Oregon or Tuscaloosa, Alabama love the college town atmosphere but that is very much different than the bright lights of Hollywood.

With the advancements of smartphones, tablets and mobile Internet access it is much easier to navigate a large city. Google Now allows users to ask Google for suggestions. This service continues to get better over time as Google better understands the type of food one may or may not like. Apple has something very similar with Siri. Instead of wandering around Los Angeles aimlessly anyone with a smartphone can now get walking directions to the closest sushi bar or steakhouse. This was not possible just five years ago. One of the best ways to navigate the Rose Bowl area is to take advantage of the Google Maps and Yelp apps. These apps are priceless when it comes to dining and entertainment options. Even if you want to get in a quick round of golf you will be able to find options through these two apps.

Booking a hotel or a place to stay in Los Angeles is another tough decision for diehard college football fans. In small college towns it is not hard to drive a motorhome to the stadium and stay for a few nights. Some families have a parking spot right outside the stadium they have used for several decades. This is not going to be possible at major bowl games. It is definitely not possible at the Rose Bowl as the stadium staff will have to clean up the stadium after the Rose Bowl on January 1st for the BCS National Championship game that will take place on January 6th. It might be hard for some fans to fly to LAX, rent a car and book a hotel room. This is something they are not accustomed to when it comes to watching their favorite team play in a college football game. Anyone that has been to big time football in the southeast knows that fans have their way of life and they enjoy it just the way it is.

When these fan bases go to other major cities it is not easy to adjust. That said, they are willing to do anything to watch their favorite college football team play. If the team in the BCS title game is their alma mater they may have waited decades to watch them win a championship. This is not the case with Alabama as they have won three national championships in the last four years. Teams like Notre Dame, Oregon and Clemson have not won national championships in decades so their fans will be ready to roll into Pasadena and take over the Rose Bowl.

Who is the favorite to go to the 2014 BCS Championship?

Crimson Tide Vs LSU Tigers

Tide Vs Tigers face off on Nov 9th.

Following their defeat of the Texas A & M Aggies in College Station the Alabama Crimson Tide are again odds on favorites to finish number one in the country and represent the SEC in the BCS title game in Pasadena on January 6th. A title game appearance by the Tide would be their fourth in five years. Under Nick Saban they are a perfect 3-0 in title games. Alabama’s remaining schedule is conducive to a potential undefeated season, but is not without pitfalls. Here’s a look at the three remaining matchups that could blemish Alabama’s potentially undefeated season.

Saturday, November 9th versus LSU: The Tigers and Crimson Tide have formed a tremendous rivalry over the past five years with the annual matchup typically deciding the SEC West. Les Miles and his staff have their typical roster full of future athletic players, with the offense again being the big question mark. Since LSU defeated Alabama 9-6 two years ago the Tigers have struggled offensively versus Alabama, including a whitewashing in the 2011 title game. Zach Mettenberger has been efficient and protected the football this season and the Tigers have a stud running back in Jeremy Hill. LSU will be entering a tough environment in Tuscaloosa, but if Mettenberger can limit his turnovers the Tigers defense should make it a close game.

Saturday, November 30th at Auburn: The annual Iron Bowl should be a closer contest this season with Gus Malzahn in at head coach of the Tigers. Auburn has their usual talented roster but had perhaps the worst head coach in all of college football the past few years in Gene Chizik. Malzahn is an elite offensive mind and the Tigers offense should continue to improve all season. The big question is the defense, a unit that has struggled in early season non-conference play at times. After falling behind quickly in a tough environment at LSU the Tigers rebounded and made the game respectable, showing a grit they lacked last season.

 SEC Championship Game

SEC Championship Trophy

SEC Championship Game: If the Tide can navigate the regular season undefeated they’ll face a tough opponent in the SEC championship game. The trio of Georgia, South Carolina and Florida all could stiff competition for Alabama, especially if Georgia wins the right to represent the SEC East in the title game in Atlanta. All three teams present unique challenges to the Crimson Tide. Under quarterback Andy Murray and running back Todd Gurley the Georgia Bulldogs have a high powered offense that put big numbers on the board versus Clemson and South Carolina and should be able to move the ball versus the Tide. The question mark for Georgia is their young defense, although they are a talented bunch that will have a full regular season behind them by the time they reach the SEC title game.

South Carolina is playing from behind after a loss to Georgia, but are a well coached and talented bunch that could very well run the rest of their schedule undefeated. They have a versatile dual threat quarterback in Connor Shaw and a game-breaking running back in Mike Davis. The defense is led by Jadeveon Clowney, the odds on number one overall pick in next spring’s NFL draft. If the Gamecocks can reach the SEC title game they may give the Crimson Tide their toughest opponent.

Due to their struggles at quarterback the Florida Gators may be a longshot to reach the SEC title game, but have a deep roster with an elite defense. If the offense can get sorted out in conference play the Gators have the depth of talent on defense to give the Bama offense fits. Unfortunately for the Gators their schedule is brutal with trips to LSU and South Carolina. They get the Georgia Bulldogs at home in their traditional rivalry game, aka “The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party”.

Alabama’s remaining schedule is highly favorable to an undefeated regular season and a return to the BCS Title game at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. They’ll receive tough opposition from LSU on November 9th and in the SEC title game, but the odds are Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide will be back in the BCS Title game on January 6th.
