Fun fact, Denzel and I went to the same university.

Today we find out who will face Invincible in the championship game of BGN's Greatest Football Movie Of All Time tournament.

Remember The Titans has spawned a campaign in support of it. To get a good argument as to why RTT belongs in the final, check out this fanpost. It stars Denzel Washington and tells the true story of a newly appointed African-American coach and his high school team on their first season as a racially integrated unit. It's a great story with really good football action and lots of really great motivational speeches from Denzel... because what is a great football movie without a good motivational speech?

#2 seed Rudy is a 1993 film which tells the story of Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger, who harbored dreams of playing football at the University of Notre Dame despite significant obstacles. It was the first movie which the Notre Dame administration allowed to be shot on campus since Knute Rockne, All American in 1940. It was also named as one of ESPN's 50 greatest sports films.
