FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - The BCS championship is going old school.
In this era of wide-open, pass-happy offenses, college football's ultimate prize will be decided next Monday night by two throwback teams, No. 1 Notre Dame and No. 2 Alabama.
The Fighting Irish (12-0) have run for nearly has many yards as they've managed through the air. The Crimson Tide (12-1) is coming off a dominant ground performance in the Southeastern Conference championship game.
Alabama has a pair of 1,000-yard rushers, junior Eddie Lacy and freshman T.J. Yeldon, carrying the ball behind what is generally regarded as the best offensive line in the nation. Notre Dame technically runs a modern spread offense, but relies on a runner-by-committee approach and quarterback Everett Golston to wear down opponents, averaging more than 202 yards per game rushing.
