I'm not trying to base anything on history really. I'm simply stating a fact that the SEC is a tougher conference to play in than probably any other conference out there.
I don't think Bama will win because they are from the SEC or because history tells me so. I think they will win because defensive teams that Texas has played has given them tons of trouble this year and none of them had defenses as tough as Bama. I don't think Texas can pass the ball on Bama like they want because the secondary is fast. I don't think they can run the ball like Bama can. I think it will come down to the defense, but more often than not when it comes down to a defensive battle it all lies on who can RUN THE BALL, and Bama has a decisive edge there.
