Of course, the biggest story line entering the 2013 season is Alabama‘s attempt at a three-peat. The Crimson Tide won the last two national championships in different fashions of dramatic and with senior quarterback A.J. McCarron back for one last hurrah, ‘Bama coach Nick Saban is out to prove he’s the best to ever roam the sidelines in the college ranks.
Staying in the SEC, everyone knows about Texas A&M and the drama-filled saga that is Johnny Manziel, but now that the Aggies’ water bug quarterback is “cleared,” the folks at College Station are seeing crystal and expecting the greatest season in school history.
The other big story this season is Ohio State. Coming off a 12-0 season in which they were ineligible for the postseason, the Buckeyes are looking for a consecutive undefeated campaign and a bid to play for the title against whichever titan emerges from the SEC.
So the Big Ten‘s best is looking to knock the SEC off the top of the college football mountain while Oregon and Stanford are out to prove the Pac-12 is just as worthy of the crown. The title race is as wide open as it’s ever been, so buckle up, college football fans. It’s going to be a wild ride.
