Rick Scott is BCS-bound. And Charlie Crist?

Notre Dame or Alabama?

Gov. Rick Scott is going to tonight's BCS Championship game in Miami but isn't choosing a side.

"I like the fact that it's in Florida," he said earlier today in Washington. "My wife was born in Mobile," Alabama, he went on. "But when I was running (for governor in 2010) a reporter asked me who my favorite Florida football team was. I said, 'I like all the teams.' The next day he said, 'This guy doesn't know anything about Florida football."

"I like all the teams. I'm just glad it's in Florida."

Charlie Crist was invited to the game by the Democratic Governors' Association. No confirmation if he's attending. In a brief conversation about a possible challenge from Crist, Scott said he would continue to lowering Florida' unemployment rate and improving education. "I'm going to just keep doing what I'm doing."
