I think some in this thread are taking the coverage a little too seriously. ESPN is not stupid. They are doing everything they can do build up the game to get viewers. If the casual fan thinks this will be a blowout they won't tune in, or won't for long.

Most national polls have Bama winning by 65-70% in the polls I've seen.

If the game goes as I suspect, the announcers will be talking about Bama for the entire second half.
