It might not be the Super Bowl, but a rematch of last year's Bowl Championship Series national championship game is always a worthy talking point among the NFL fraternity.
The Southeastern Conference showdown between defending BCS champion Alabama and runner-up Louisiana State on Saturday night drew plenty of attention from NFL players on Twitter.
Of course, very few NFL players actually got the chance to attend the game -- and even fewer had the social media savvy to tweet from the sideline.

San Diego Chargers linebacker Takeo Spikes was in Alabama's corner:

Earl Thomas wished Texas good luck. It apparently worked since the Longhorns beat Texas Tech, 31-22.
