For as much as I drag the SEC for scheduling joke non-conference games, I have to give major props to Alabama.

Nick Saban and company are actually out here trying to put together a tough slate outside of SEC competition. They’re playing a home-and-home with Wisconsin, and now they’re doing it with Ohio State.

Credit where credit is due.

Games like this one are pretty much porn for college football fans. These are the types of games people will talk about for years after the fact.

We’re talking about two of the most historic and prestigious programs in the history of the sport. On one side we have Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide. The pride and joy of the SEC.

On the other side, we have the Ohio State Buckeyes. We have the crown jewel of the Big 10. These are the kinds of games that fans live for.

Welcome to the big stage, folks. This is what it’s all about!
