GAINESVILLE, Fla. — For all of the love and attention heaped on the Big 12 this season, it's time for a little appreciation of the Southeastern Conference. The winner of Saturday's championship game between No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Florida in Atlanta probably will be headed to the Bowl Championship Series title game.

Though undefeated Alabama's grip on the nation's top ranking has been obscured by the weekly intrigue of the Big 12 South during the last month, there is no need to remind the Gators of the Crimson Tide's dominance. They know.

Walk around the corridors of Florida's football complex, outside the locker room and meeting rooms, and the signs are everywhere. Pictures of Alabama in action have been taped on walls with descriptions of where the Crimson Tide rank. No. 1 team in the nation. No. 2 rushing defense. No. 5 pass defense. No. 3 scoring defense. No. 3 total defense. No. 2 rushing offense in the SEC. No. 2 scoring offense in the SEC. And on it goes.

The Gators (11-1) are heavily favored by oddsmakers and many pundits, so those signs also serve as blindfolds, keeping Florida's attention on the challenge.

The reaction of the Tide (12-0) to being underdogs? A collective yawn, at least publicly.
