What better way to start a year that promises to be a wild one than with two of the most polarizing personalities in all of sports going head-to-head for the first time?

The Citrus Bowl on New Year’s Day will be Alabama, coached by Nick Saban, against Michigan, coached by Jim Harbaugh.

Pass the popcorn.

Should be interesting, along with this year’s College Football Playoff matchups — LSU vs. Oklahoma and Ohio State vs. Clemson.
