Bama wins! The national championship will feature two SEC powers: Alabama against Georgia
That gives Alabama a chance to finish first in the nation even though they did not make the championship game in their own conference.
One cool thing about the match-up: each of the contenders had one loss during the season, and in each case that loss came against Auburn.
1. So Auburn can already claim to have defeated the national champion, as well as the runner-up.
2. And that makes UCF's win over Auburn all the sweeter.
