Well here we are a couple of hours from kickoff.  Everybody has a theory.  Notre Dame by 6, the Vegas line is Alabama by 10.  Well I have my theory too.  If you are looking for a high powered offensive game you will probably be disappointed.  But of these teams have outstanding defenses.  They both go into lockdown mode in the red-zone.  Alabama has allowed 106 points in 27 red-zone opportunities. Notre Dame has only allowed 95 points in 33 red-zone opportunities.  Alabama has scored on 89 percent of their trips in the red-zone.  Notre Dame has scored 79 percent of their trips in the red-zone.  Notre Dame also leads the nation in field goals inside the red-zone.  I think we are going see a defensive battle.  Alabama wins by 3. There I said it.
