Notre Dame anxious to find out opponent in BCS title game

Mike Zarrilli

No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia will play on Saturday to determine who advances to the BCS National Championship in January.

Already locked into a trip to the BCS National Championship on Jan. 7, 2013, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish have nothing left to do this weekend but watch the SEC Championship Game between No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia to see who the opponent will be.

Heisman Trophy candidate Manti Te'o told J.J. Stankevitz of CSN Chicago on Friday that he has no rooting interest between the two teams:

"No, not really," linebacker Manti Te'o said when asked if he had any rooting interest in Saturday's game. "Good luck to both teams and just excited to see who we play."

With no upcoming games on the schedule for No. 4 Florida and No. 5 Oregon, it is assumed that the winner of the SEC Championship Game will become the No. 2 team in the final BCS rankings and advance to play Notre Dame. Only the Fighting Irish and the Ohio State Buckeyes finished the 2012 regular season undefeated, although the Buckeyes are ineligible for a bowl due to sanctions.

Alabama will travel to play Georgia on Saturday at the Georgia Dome, kickoff is scheduled for 4 p.m. ET.
