    Re: Pick the Score: Alabama vs. Notre Dame BCSNCG

    Game hinges on Alabama yards per run more than anything else, 4.5 is the magic number. But ND does score points probably including a TD.

    24-17 to the good guys.

    ND could pull out a close win but a lopsided win is likely to be Alabama's.

    13-10 Bama. I just think it's going to be low scoring.

    Re: Pick the Score: Alabama vs. Notre Dame BCSNCG

    I just keep going back to turnovers. I don't think they have a shot to win if Alabama doesn't turn the ball over. If we do... all bets are off.

    I can't remember what my pick was in the early thread. I'll go with 24-13 today. I think it's close throughout, and we tack on a late score to pull away. I respect Notre Dame. I think they're a good team and worthy of the national championship game. But I just don't think they match up very well with Alabama, and it's going to take some mistakes to allow them to stay in the game and win it. We'll see.

    Re: Pick the Score: Alabama vs. Notre Dame BCSNCG

    Most likely score?
    Alabama 20 Notre Dame 19

    Possible outcomes? Here are four:

    1. Alabama wins by more than 10 points! Let's say... Alabama 30, Notre Dame 9
    Probability: 20%
    Factors:
    * Notre Dame offensive futility in the red zone continues.
    * Notre Dame special teams mediocrity allows a return TD or a 50+ yard return.
    * Inexperienced Notre Dame defensive backfield allows at least one long TD, think Yeldon on a screen or wheel route.
    * Alabama running game out of the I-formation continues to prove to be unstoppable, chews clock on three long drives, including one in the 4Q. Alabama OL continues their dominance.
    * Alabama wins the turnover battle by two or more.

    2. Notre Dame wins by more than 10 points! Let's say... Notre Dame 26, Alabama 10
    Probability: 10%
    Factors:
    * AJ McCarron is knocked out of the game, and Notre Dame defense feasts on inexperienced backup QBs, deja vu Garrett Gilbert circa 2010.
    * Notre Dame defensive front seven stops the run and continues to forbid running TDs in the red zone. Notre Dame DL continues their dominance.
    * Inexperienced Notre Dame defensive backfield plays deep single coverage, allows only "bend but don't break" receptions, continues to forbid passing TDs.
    * Accurate Notre Dame PK Kyle Brindza converts all FG opportunities, perhaps 4 of 4.
    * Notre Dame TE Tyler Eifert wins at least two red zone mismatches, leading to at least one and perhaps two TDs.
    * Notre Dame wins the turnover battle by two or more.

    3. Alabama wins a close game... Alabama 20, Notre Dame 19
    Probability: 40%
    Factors:
    * Notre Dame offensive futility in the red zone continues. Alabama scores two TDs, while Notre Dame scores only one TD.
    * Notre Dame special teams mediocrity allows favorable field position for Alabama on two occasions. Alabama special teams never allow Notre Dame any breathing room in field position.
    * Inexperienced Notre Dame defensive backfield allows too many 3rd down conversions, and Alabama keeps possession for 35 minutes.
    * Alabama running game out of the I-formation continues to prove to be unstoppable, chews clock on two long drives, including one in the 4Q.
    * Experienced Saban/McCarron make better tactical decisions than inexperienced Kelly/Golston.

    4. Notre Dame wins a close game, say... Notre Dame 20, Alabama 18
    Probability: 30%
    Factors:
    * AJ McCarron is unable to exploit Notre Dame defense frequently playing man coverage on Alabama WRs.
    * Notre Dame defensive front seven stops the run in second half and limits Lacy/Yeldon to 100 rushing yards and 50 receiving yards.
    * Inexperienced Notre Dame defensive backfield plays deep, allows only "bend but don't break" receptions, continues to forbid passing TDs.
    * Accurate Notre Dame PK Kyle Brindza converts all FG opportunities, perhaps 4 of 4.
    * Notre Dame TE Tyler Eifert wins at least one red zone mismatch, leading to at least one TD.
    * Notre Dame commits to the run, refrains from turnovers, and cranks out first downs in the 4Q (or overtime)

    I dont like predicting score so ill just throw my two cents into the equation. ND hasnt even impressed me all year. So if we run the ball and wear them down and throw the ball a little kinda like the 09 bcsncg The score should not even be close. RTR
