the only 2 things that make me think Texas is the record Heisman winners have in bowl games and the fact that Texas barely beat Nebraska. Which MIGHT make them more focused for this game. Alabama is a better overall team and if they run the ball effectively should win by 10 points or more. But if Texas can run the ball they have a shot..they couldnt run against Nebraska.
Bama should dismantle Texas pretty easily. The Tide's 3-headed monster of a running game (Ingram, Richardson and Upchurch) will wear down the Texas front 7 by the 3rd quarter, and QB Greg McElroy will make just enough key throws to keep the chains moving. McCoy will throw for a lot of yards, but it will be in a losing effort.
When i was in the Navy my friend was a huge Bama fan so i started to pay attention. Still my heart was with Boise State because i attended that school but I've always liked the Crimson Tide.
With that said, my wife is a huge Longhorns fan and I always like to see her happy. Thats one of the reasons i have to root for Favre and the Vikings(yeah i know). When her teams lose, Chaos ensues throughout the household. With that I'm probably going to root for Texas.
Hopefully Texas makes my wife happy. 27-24 Longhorns.
