BCS Title Contenders Met Once Before In Historic Clash

By Jim McCoy Mon 7th January SportsBCS title gamecollege football
early four decades ago, on a dreary night in New Orleans, two titans of college football met for the first time. It was a time of jarring social and political turmoil in America: the pain of the civil rights movement was still fresh and U.S. troops were finally home from an unpopular war in Vietnam. Against that backdrop, Notre Dame and Alabama played for the national title in the 1973 Sugar Bowl. It was North vs. South. The teams didn't just live up the hype, they blew it away. The game of the year became a game for the ages - and Notre Dame won, 24-23. On Monday night, the teams meet again, with another national title on the line.
