Auburn is taking on Florida State in the BCS Championship game. A game Alabama would have been playing in if they hadn’t lost to their rivals Auburn in the Iron Bowl game.
Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron is loyal to his school and the SEC, and that would mean having to support arch-rival Auburn in the championship game, and he said he might.

Alabama head coach Nick Saban supported Auburn playing in the game saying they deserved to be there when they still looked like the odd man out heading into the SEC title game.
“If Auburn wins the SEC they deserve an opportunity to play for a national championship,” Saban said during an appearance on ESPN’s College GameDay.
No word on whether Saban will be wearing orange and blue though. If Auburn wins, it means the last five National Championships have been won between these two schools.
