Notre Dame
and the University of Alabama are taking their beef to a new level -- TMZ has learned, the mayors of both college towns have made a friendly wager in honor of the BCS National Championship ... and a whole lot of BBQ goodness is at stake.

If the Fighting Irish win -- Tuscaloosa mayor Walt Maddox will send a heaping portion of coma-inducing grub from Dreamland Bar-B-Que to a rep for South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Maddox has also agreed to donate money to South Bend Big Brothers Big Sisters.

But if 'Bama wins -- Buttigieg has agreed to send gourmet chocolates from the South Bend Chocolate Company ... and will donate to the Tuscaloosa Tornado Recovery Fund.

We're not suggesting either team would throw the BCS Championship on January 7 -- but BBQ and chocolate are awesome.

Just sayin'.

Nd will get embarrassed! They couldn't beat the worse sec team, much less the best. There is NCAA then SEC then NFL, in that order. Notre dame doesn't even belong on the same grass with bama!

We are thankful that Notre Dame will be sending chocolates and helping people from the tornado. Too bad yall will not be able to eat Dreamland ribs! Their motto is "Ain't nothing like em nowhere"

I'm an ND Alum. The Notre Dame/Alabama rivalry has always been FIRST CLASS: 2 schools with GREAT football traditions, and fans that RESPECT that TRADITION. I expect this to be a competitive game that will reflect past ND/Crimson Tide contests. People who mouth-off about the SEC and all the related negative crap about the Fighting Irish are just foolish. Most are just idiots with no historic perspective. This is going to be the MOST WATCHED national championship in history. BOTTOM LINE: The BEST TEAM will WIN.
