Rant Preview: Alabama vs. Michigan in Cowboys Classic, Floyd Mayweather’s $3 Million Bet
Jerry Jones had games like this in mind when he built the massive structure in Arlington, Texas, that is Cowboys Stadium. The 2012 college football season kicks off with a bang in the Cowboys Classic as the Alabama Crimson Tide and Michigan Wolverines square off in a top 10 battle that will provide an early turn in the BCS National Championship race.
Alabama’s defense was off the charts in the Tide’s 2011 championship run, but after losing seven starters in the 2012 NFL draft, head coach Nick Saban will be looking to senior quarterback A.J. McCarron and his offense to lead the charge for a third title in four years.
Michigan bounced back in a big way last season in head coach Brady Hoke‘s first year with the program. Now Denard Robinson and company are looking to build off their Sugar Bowl win against the defending champs.
This game isn’t just about these two teams. The SEC has ruled college football for nearly the past decade, so the Big 10 is hoping Michigan can start the process of bringing the conference back to national supremacy. There’s no better way to do that than by knocking off Alabama in the largest indoor stadium in America.
By the way, Floyd Mayweather is quite sure Michigan is going to win because he wagered a pretty good chunk of change on the game. Do you agree with Mayweather? Rant your comments below!
