FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - The BCS championship is going old school. In this era of wide-open, pass-happy offenses, college football's ultimate prize will be decided Monday night by two throwback teams, No. 1 Notre Dame and No. 2 Alabama.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Alabama lost once this season, mostly because of what Texas A & M's Johnny Manziel was able to do to extend its defense. Now Notre Dame is pinning much of its national title game hopes on the dual-threat skills of another redshirt freshman quarterback. The difference being, Everett Golson hasn't won a Heisman Trophy yet. "Third downs were key for [A & M], and then [Manziel] ad-libbing a little bit," said Chuck Martin, Notre Dame's first-year offensive coordinator.
