TUSCALOOSA, Alabama As it stands right now, Alabama and Florida State are in line to meet in the BCS title game.

The Crimson Tide sits first in the standings followed by the Seminoles and Nick Saban's former LSU assistant Jimbo Fisher.

Saban had high praise for both the Seminoles and his former employee Wednesday.

"If you look at the whole body of work," Saban said, "and the way they beat people, they're arguably the best team in the country right now. And they weren't that way when he went there, so he made a significant amount of improvement."

The Seminoles were 7-6 in Bobby Bowden's final season in 2009. Fisher had 10-win seasons in three of his four years in Tallahassee and last year's Orange Bowl win was his third straight in postseason play.

Saban said Fisher was "one of the best coaches we've had" on his staffs throughout the years. Fisher was with Saban from 2000-04 at LSU as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

As the Crimson Tide tries to again defend its national championship in football, no university may defend its trademarks and logos more vigorously than Alabama.
