Some years the football season comes down to the final weekend with several teams still in the championship mix.
In 2006, it wasn’t known until the final Bowl Championship Series standings release whether Michigan or Florida would earn the right to play Ohio State for the title -- it was Florida.
Who can forget 2007, when two-loss Louisiana State jumped from No. 7 to No. 2 on a final frenetic weekend?
This isn’t one of those years. The only remaining drama at the top is determining which team, Alabama or Georgia, will play Notre Dame for the national title.
The Irish’s 22-13 victory over USC on Saturday effectively ended this year’s BCS argument.
Sunday’s next-to-last release only confirmed the obvious.
Notre Dame, the only undefeated team eligible for this year’s title game, clinched the top spot in the BCS standings only a week after the Irish’s first-ever appearance at No. 1.
