   In a rare meeting between two of the nation's most storied programs, No. 3 Alabama and No. 11 Oklahoma will face off Jan. 2 in the Sugar Bowl at New Orleans.
 
   This will mark only the fifth time Alabama (11-1) and Oklahoma (10-2) have played each other. Oklahoma leads the series 2-1-1 and beat Alabama 20-13 when they last met in 2003.
 
   Alabama was ranked No. 1 all season and seemed headed toward a shot at a third straight national title before falling 34-28 to No. 2 Auburn, which was ranked fourth at the time. Oklahoma boosted its chances of a BCS at-large berth Saturday with a 33-24 victory over Oklahoma State, which fell from No. 6 to No. 13 after the loss.
