Saban takes a shot at Boise State’s worthiness as a BCS title contender

TUSCALOOSA – On his radio show Thursday night, Alabama coach Nick Saban took a shot at Boise State, which might have moved into BCS national championship contention with its 33-30 victory Monday over Virginia Tech.

He noted that Alabama defeated Virginia Tech in its 2009 opener and defeated “six other teams that were the caliber of Virginia Tech, or maybe better. And maybe more than that if you throw in Texas and Florida in the SEC Championship Game. …”
