Alabama and Notre Dame will play in the Rose Bowl hosted by Capital One on ESPN and the ESPN App at 4 pm Eastern Time on Friday.
The Red Tide has won two national championships in the college football playoffs and has entered the playoffs for the sixth time in the past seven years (including this season). Notre Dame’s only previous playoff game was in 2018, when the Irish lost to Clemson 30-3.
The two teams took very different approaches to achieving this goal: winning the national championship.
This is how Alabama and Notre Dame de Paris have recruited and built teams.
