Hot Button: Alabama or Oregon?

By Edward Aschoff

It's the matchup that most of the country wants to see.

It's southern-fried speed vs. winged speed. Old school Plain Jane threads vs. new school swag.

Simply put: Alabama vs. Oregon.

Oregon had its chance against the SEC in 2010 ... and then again last season. But that's beside the point. This is a new year, and the Ducks are one of the hottest teams in the country. Alabama is clearly the top team around, so it's going to be tough for anyone to top the Tide.

But could it be Oregon? Do the Ducks have a chance, or can Alabama just not be stopped?

ESPN.com celebrities Mark Schlabach and Ted Miller take a look at both teams in ESPN.com's Hot Button topic.
