The first line got me thinking - are there any other fight songs that mention other teams? Especially teams that aren't currently in their conference (they haven't played Georgia Tech since 1984!)?

As for the second line, to paraphrase Steve Goodman:
"The law of averages says anything will happen that can.
But the last time Alabama played in the Rose Bowl was the year we dropped the bomb on Japan."

Texas Longhorns:
starts off, "and it's goodbye to A&M"

That's the 2nd line after "Texas, fight, Texas fight"

RE: Fight songs with other team's names in them?
Oklahoma State has a line in two of their songs where it officially says "(opponent)", but their fans yell "OU", even when they don't play Oklahoma.

Ride, ride, ride, ride,
Ride ‘em Cowboys,
Right down the field;
Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!
Fight ‘em Cowboys, and never yield.
Ride, ride, ride, ride,
Ride on, Cowboys, to victory;
Cross (opponent)’s goal;
Then we’ll sing “O-kla-homa State!”

GO! GO! GO POKES! GO POKES! GO POKES GO!
O!…S!…U!
O S U
The greatest in the nation
O S U
The team that’s got the go spirit and the will to win
Make a score and we’ll shout
Beat (opponent)!!
O S U
It’s orange and black we’re cheering on to victory today
And then we’ll say
O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A!
STATE!
Univer-si-ty!

Both Stanford's and Cal's refer to the other. That's if Cal is allowed to sing a fight song any longer without protest.

We're the Red and White from State,
And we know we are the best.
A hand behind our back,
We can take on all the rest.
Go to heck Carolina
Devils, Deacs, and Pirates stand in line.
The Red and White from N.C. State,
Go State!

Updated it to include another major NC State rival. Think I'll update Bama's next.
