Crystal Ball Run:
Alabama Crimson Tide
First Practice: March 16 Spring Game: April 20 So in case you hadn’t heard, this Nick Saban has a pretty good thing going at Alabama. Getting ready to enter his seventh season at the school, Saban has won a whole bunch of ball-games, with five-straight 10+ win seasons, two SEC titles and a ho-hum three National Championships under his belt. (//Cue to Saban yawning, while the rest of college football silently weeps in the corner//).

There are lots of good reasons for Alabama to play a Big Ten team at Cowboys Stadium.
