COLLEGE FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK: N.D., Alabama, UGA top BCS standings; Barkley out vs. Irish; Vols fire Dooley
The scenario is pretty clear following the release of the latest BCS standings Sunday: If Notre Dame wins out, it will face the SEC Championship game winner of UGA-Alabama for the national title — that is, provided the Tide beats Auburn and Georgia beats Georgia Tech this weekend.
