Alabama and Notre Dame combine for 17 titles, and that's not counting the ones that weren't recognized by the AP or Coaches' polls!
U mad, bro?
In all seriousness, a BCS game featuring Alabama and Notre Dame would likely have the highest television ratings in the history of the contest. Not just because of the millions of Alabama and Notre Dame fans, but the millions upon millions of people who hate the success both programs have had over the past 100 years.
People who don't follow college football at all probably didn't even know Oregon and Kansas had colleges with football teams!
