Eagles, Tigers meet up with opposite streaks

The Newton Rams and Alcovy Tigers squared off in a matchup of top teams in one of the state's better regions Saturday night.

While the game finished after press time, the set up was ripe with story lines. The two teams met in region play for the first time ever; Newton spent the last few years competing at the state's highest level, just missing the postseason in 2011-12; and Alcovy jumped on to the scene reaching the elite eight last year and, oh yeah, the whole area rival thing.

SEC winner playing for national title game

You read that headline correctly. Saturday's SEC Championship Game between No. 2 Alabama (11-1, 7-1) and No. 3 Georgia (11-1, 7-1) has been dubbed a "play-in" for the right to face media darling Notre Dame in the BCS national championship.

Nonsense. Call me biased (did the SEC Banter tagline give it away?), but the national championship kicks off Saturday at 4 p.m. in the Georgia Dome. As champions of the nation's finest football conference, the Dawgs or Tide will have an entirely legitimate claim as the best team in college football and the de facto national champion.
