So, what did the reigning national champions watch on the eve of the 2013 BCS title game?

The University of Alabama team got a special screening of the controversial, but critically beloved movie about the hunt for Osama bin Laden, “Zero Dark Thirty.” (No fair! It isn’t even in wide-release yet.)

According to ESPN, the coaches wanted the team to get pumped up by SEAL Team Six’s kick-assery. So, is Nick Saban comparing beating the Fighting Irish to capturing the most-wanted the international terrorist ever? Maybe, maybe not. Apparently, he and the team aren’t bothered by the supposedly graphic torture scenes and factual inaccuracies.

Notre Dame presumably watched “Rudy” just like they do every night after practice.
