Days until game: 36

Champion pedigree

Notre Dame or Alabama will get the upper hand in national football championships when the No. 1 Irish (12-0) play the No. 2 Crimson Tide (12-1) in the BCS championship game Jan. 7 in Miami.

The teams each have eight Associated Press national titles between them.

Alabama won its second title in three years by winning last year’s championship game against LSU.
