Two of the most historied college football programs square off for the fourth time ever on Saturday night.
No. 2 Alabama takes on No. 8 Michigan at Cowboy Stadium. It is the only game this Saturday that features two ranked teams. To make it even sweeter, these two teams have a good chance of playing in the BCS National Championship. The loser of this game could see those title hopes go out the window. This is a must-win game for both teams to get a signature win on their resume.
This is the 2012 version of Oregon vs. LSU. The Tigers gained a ton of momentum after their signature win in the season opener against the Ducks in 2011.
Alabama and Michigan are hoping to do the same.
Alabama has to reload after losing 11 starters from last years team.
Trent Richardson, Marquis Maze, and Brad Smelley are all gone. Richardson was a Heisman finalist last year and was the sixth leading rusher in the nation.
Maze, Smelley, and Richardson were the top three receivers for the Crimson Tide last year.
