Real Estate Rivalry: Which Home Wins the Championship?

The BCS National Championship college football game is tonight, and even if your team isn't playing, you can still find something to cheer about. The areas surrounding both schools' campuses offer a wealth of fabulous homes, including the two below. Check out the photo galleries and let us know which campus town you would choose.

Notre Dame's campus near South Bend, Ind., has been described as serene, majestic and even awe-inspiring -- adjectives that also seem fitting for this five-bedroom home nearby. Situated on two acres on a double corner lot with a pond, this home offers the perfect escape -- and its workout room will let you feel like a star athlete. The fireplaces keep things warm and cozy, even during football weather.

Representing the other team, we have this newly remodeled seven-bedroom residence located near Alabama's campus in Tuscaloosa. This home's spacious kitchen (complete with granite countertops) is perfect for entertaining, as is the basement, which contains a theater and additional gourmet kitchen. Thanks to the warm Southern climate, you will be able to host tailgating parties year-round in the huge yard. The wooded lot leads to a lake, complete with private boathouse.
