After three years, BCS Trophy may finally leave state of Alabama

For the past three seasons the BCS National Championship trophy has resided in the great state of Alabama, but after Saturday it appears that trend just might be over. No. 1 Alabama was upset by No. 15 Texas A&M seemingly ending the Tide’s chances of repeating as national champions. Because there are three undefeated teams ahead of Alabama in the rankings, UA could win the SEC Championship and still not make the title game. Auburn University, whose title run in 2010 came sandwiched between Bama’s two championships, is hardly having a title-worthy season. After their loss to Georgia on Saturday, the Tigers now sit at 2-8 and 0-7 in the SEC, their worst season since 1952. For now it appears the SEC’s and the state of Alabama’s dominance in college football has come to an end, at least for this year.
