Will Alabama's dynastic run of championships under Nick Saban continue in 2013? If it isn't Alabama, will another SEC school win an eighth straight BCS title for the conference? Does Stanford or Oregon have what it takes to win the final BCS crown? Or could it be Florida State or Clemson? What about Louisville?

These are just a few of the burning questions going into the 2013 campaign. Without a doubt, the Crimson Tide has the talent -- and the schedule -- to win a third consecutive national title. But there's another SEC squad that also has the talent, the schedule and the head coach to get to Atlanta and unseat 'Bama.

I believe that team resides in Columbia, South Carolina. The Gamecocks have the best player in America (Jadeveon Clowney), two quality quarterbacks and a coach that has had his way with Saban.

Oregon and Stanford are absolutely loaded, but I think the Ducks have a better quarterback and superior playmakers. FSU and Clemson might stay in the mix into November, but they close the regular season at Florida and at South Carolina, respectively.

As for Louisville, it’s a shame it doesn’t face a better schedule. Enough with the comparisons to previous Boise State teams because the Broncos have always had at least one tough game against a ranked foe (think about season-opening wins over Virginia Tech and Georgia). Even if the Cardinals go unbeaten, there’s no chance they get to Pasadena ahead of a one-loss SEC squad or one-loss teams like Stanford or Oregon.

I think we’ll see South Carolina and Oregon in the BCS Championship with Steve Spurrier bagging his second career national title.
