Who Will Derail Alabama?

The curtain is about to be raised on the 2013 college football season.

The key story line across the nation will be directed at Alabama, as the Crimson Tide look to win their third straight national championship.

As the season unfolds the major question to be asked will be who will play in the BCS National Championship Game slated for Jan. 6, 2014 in Pasadena, Calif.?

In most pre-season sports publications and polls, Alabama is the number one team in college football.

Ohio State and Stanford are two of a handful of teams that have a shot at ending Alabamas string of championships.

As for Nebraska, the Huskers are pre-seasoned ranked between 18th and 21st in the top 25 in most polls and pre-season publications. Sports Illustrated shows little love for the Big Red not ranking the Cornhuskers in their publication of the top 25 last week.
