Last week during a speech to a Notre Dame alumni chapter in Alabama, Brian Kelly made the statement, "Notre Dame will be taken serious when they beat an SEC team."

On Monday, Kelly did it again.

During a speech in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, Kelly said, “Our (goal) at Notre Dame is to get back to a BCS game that hopefully draws an SEC team, so we can start to reverse that trend of where they think the best football is in the country because the SEC can hold that (claim) right now.”

The 2012 BCS bowl schedule is set up as follows:

January 2 - Rose Bowl (Pasadena)
January 2 or 3 - Sugar Bowl (New Orleans)
January 3 or 4 - Orange Bowl (Miami)
January 4 or 5 - Fiesta Bowl (Glendale, Ariz.)
January 9 - National Championship Game (New Orleans)

What if Notre Dame runs the table and plays Alabama in New Orleans for the national championship? Do you think that would be a cheap ticket?
