“We are very excited about coming to South Florida and I congratulate Notre Dame and Coach Kelly and his players on an undefeated season and their number one ranking,” said Alabama head football coach Nick Saban. “They are a fantastic team and it’s always a special occasion to play against Notre Dame, and especially for the national championship.”
“The opportunity to play in our second straight BCS Championship Game is special,” said linebacker C.J. Mosley. “One of the goals that we set for this team at the beginning of each season is to play for a national championship. It has not been easy this season and there are several different times we could have let the opportunity slip away, but we pulled together, fought through adversity and found a way to make it to Miami.”
“I could not be more excited about the chance to end my Alabama career playing in the BCS National Championship Game against a talented Notre Dame team,” said offensive lineman Barrett Jones. “This team has worked hard and overcame a lot for this opportunity, but we know that we have a lot of work ahead of us and a very difficult challenge.”
