FILE - In this Oct. 20, 2012, file photo, Notre Dame running back Cierre Wood, center, cuts between Brigham Young defenders Spencer Hadley, left, Daniel Sorensen, left center, and Joe Sampson during the second half of an NCAA college football game in South Bend, Ind. Notre Dame defeated BYU 17-14. With the national championship on the line, two throwback offenses will slug it out. No. 1 Notre Dame and No. 2 Alabama rely heavily on the run, and that doesn't figure to change in the biggest game of the year. (AP Photo/Michael Conroy, File)
