In the last two years, two of the top college football programs in the country have met in the SEC Championship game.
Both have won at least three of their last four matchups, and in each of those wins the Crimson Tide has won in overtime or overtime and won in double overtime.
The latest matchup in the rivalry between Alabama and Florida State is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 12, 2017, at 7:30 p.m.
The game will be televised on ESPN.
The game will mark the final meeting between the two programs in what will likely be the most closely contested of the two rivalry games in recent memory.
While there are a few other games in the series scheduled, the game is most definitely the one that will see the most action.
The rivalry is a lot more than just two teams competing for the same title, and there are plenty of reasons why Alabama and Seminoles fans would want to see the two sides meet in the national championship game.
One of the biggest reasons the rivalry is in such high demand is because of how good of a football team both of these teams are.
Florida State won three straight games from 2007-2012 and Alabama has lost only one in the last three seasons.
The Seminoles were the only team to win 10 games in a season from 2012-2017, and while that won’t happen again, it does give fans a chance to see what the Seminoles’ defense can do.
While the rivalry has been in the news recently, it is really only just beginning.
Both of the schools have been ranked in the top 15 in ESPN’s latest Power Index since December.
The Crimson Tide is at No. 13 and the Seminole Tide is No. 21.
Both teams have been playing very well this season, with both teams ranking in the bottom 20 in ESPN.com’s Power Index in each category.
