I don't think we've seen two namesakes go after a title, but we might have a shot at such a outing this year if we get a Kelly Bowl with Chip bringing Oregon to face Brian's Norte Dame team. After the Aggies took out Alabama earlier today, we're a Kansas State loss away from an Oregon-Notre Dame title game.
I'm not a big Nick Saban fan, so seeing low Tide in Tuscaloosa is a good thing, especially when it is Texas A&M delivering the take-down; I've got Aggie in-laws, so that's a program I have a soft spot for.
Alabama isn't out of things quite yet. A 12-1 Alabama would likely beat out any other X-1 team, so if there's only one undefeated team left come December, they'll still have a shot a defending their title.
