Former Buccaneers and Raiders coach Jon Gruden has been one of the most coveted coaching candidates since leaving the game for the broadcast booth after the 2008 season, and has been approached by multiple NFL owners and universities in recent years, with Arkansas and Tennessee of the SEC ranking as the latest to covet him.
Anyway, Notre Dame and Alabama are about as locked in at the top as two teams can be. Notre Dame has been a computer poll favorite all season, and they're now the human poll favorite as the only remaining undefeated eligible team. Alabama is well clear of Oregon in both the computer and human polls, so winning out will keep the Crimson Tide in second. Georgia is close behind Bama, but an SEC Championship Game win will fix that potential issue.
