Texas vs. Alabama BCS Championship Line

The Texas vs. Alabama BCS Championship line has been posted at Bookmaker.com.

Sunday night at approximately 8:30 pm EST the oldest online sportsbook catering to US gamblers made Alabama the -4 ½ point favorite in what should be a fantastic game.

Seeking its first national title since 1992, Alabama will meet Texas at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.  The pairing was made official Sunday night and Bookmaker.com was fast to post odds on the 2010 BCS Championship game.

The no-nonsense coach of Alabama, Nick Saban, needed only three years to bring Alabama back from a grim era to a place it was accustomed to under Paul "Bear" Bryant.

"Everyone had to buy into not to be denied in this game," Saban said, getting back to business after a raucous celebration at the Georgia Dome. "To be a champion, that's what you had to do. I've never been prouder of a group of players."

Alabama captured its 22nd SEC championship title on Saturday, the most in conference history.

Meanwhile, Texas just barely managed to squeak by Nebraska to secure its place in the 2010 BCS Championship game.

For more than a year, the Texas Longhorns agonized over falling 1 second short of getting into the Big 12 and national championship games.

This season, they're conference champions and headed to the BCS title game because a video replay showed they still had 1 second left.

The Longhorns have won 17 straight overall and five in a row vs. the Cornhuskers.

Given a chance for one last play, Hunter Lawrence nailed a 46-yard field goal as time expired for good, giving a roughed-up Colt McCoy and the Longhorns a 13-12 victory over Nebraska (No. 22 BCS, No. 21 AP) in the Big 12 championship on Saturday night and a spot in the BCS final against Alabama.

"We had so many things not go our way tonight," McCoy said, "but we found a way."

A loss to Texas Tech with one second left in 2008 kept the Longhorns out of the Big 12 and national championship games, letting in a team they'd beaten by 10 on a neutral field.
