BCS Championship T-Shirts Ready for Alabama Win


By Heather VacLav

The game has yet to be played, but already some retailers are gearing up for a Crimson Tide victory.

Boxes of Alabama BCS national championship t-shirts and hats arrived at Academy Sports + Outdoors in Montgomery and other stores across the state.

The boxes will only be opened if Alabama beats Notre Dame Monday night. If the Tide claim the crystal trophy, Academy stores will open immediately to sell championship memorabilia.

Store management says Academy will remain open until they sell out of merchandise, or the crowds die down.

If you can't make it out Monday night, don't sweat it, Academy says more shipments of championship gear will arrive daily.
