Sacks – Stephon Tuitt, 12“Notre Dame is a very well-coached team and has great balance on offense. They have a great player that plays tight end (Eifert) and has made a lot of great plays for them. The balance that they have on offense and the toughness that they play with is something that I think will be very challenging. Defensively, they probably have the best front seven in the country. This is just a good all-around football team.”

— Alabama coach Nick Saban
