Roll Tide: Alabama Defeats LSU And Wins The BCS National Championship

They did it, the Alabama Crimson Tide are the 2011-12 BCS National Champions.

Coming into tonight and even before tonight’s game, many said that the Alabama Crimson Tide didn’t deserve to be in the National Championship game and that they weren’t good enough as they already lost to LSU earlier in the season 9-6. Many said that this game wouldn’t be a high scoring game. Many said that Alabama would get pounded by the Tigers running game. Many said that Alabama wouldn’t win, but come around 11:30 Eastern Time, the Alabama Crimson Tide were the National Champions.

Defeating the LSU Tigers 21-0, Alabama not only proved that they were the best, but they proved that they could score and stop the Tigers running game as they held them to 39 total rushing yards, 92 total yards, and most importantly zero points.

The Tigers offense crossed the 50 yard line once; they had five first downs, and completed two third downs. They just got out played and they [LSU] looked the team that didn’t belong.

It was a game of field goals in the first half as Alabama lead 9-0 at halftime and it continued in the second half as Alabama hit two more field goals of 35 and 44 in the third quarter. However it wasn’t until the fourth quarter with less than five minutes remaining until the first touchdown was scored when running back Trent Richardson would score on a 34 yard touchdown.

Richardson’s touchdown would pretty much seal the game as the Tigers with 4:36 left on the clock, down by three scores, with only two timeouts were pretty much done as they would suffer their first loss of the season.

This win would mark Alabama’s head coach Nick Saban’s third National Championship and would mark history as Saban’s BCS Title win tonight would make him the only coach in the new BCS era to ever win three National Championships.

It was a game that many said that Oklahoma State should’ve been in, but it was it game that Alabama showed that they deserved to be in by winning 21-0 and shutting out the former number one team in the Nation. Two words…Roll Tide.

LSU vs. Alabama: Round Two

The wish of the College football world came true.

During week 10 of this year’s NCAA Football season fans saw what they called this year’s BCS National Championship game; except the only difference was it was happening during the season. It was the number one ranked LSU Tigers versus the number two ranked Alabama Crimson Tide.

Many said that this would be the game of the year and that it would be better than the BCS National Championship game in January as many felt that these two teams were the best of this year’s college football season. They thought right as LSU won the game with a field goal in overtime making the final score 9-6.

Fans, analysts, players, and the college football world were thrilled of the game that they witnessed but they were heartbroken at the same time as everyone wanted to see a rematch between the two teams. Possible right? Not really due to the BCS ranking system and that the fact that it was already late in the season all pointed that LSU, Alabama wouldn’t be played again this season.

However when the BCS rankings came out that following week, the Crimson Tide of Alabama would still have a chance; getting the number one spot was LSU then followed Oklahoma State at number two and then Alabama at number three.

The Crimson Tide still had a chance as all they needed was an Oklahoma State loss. The only problem was; Oklahoma State didn’t lose. However, looking at their upcoming schedule Alabama appeared to have a chance. Reading Texas Tech, Iowa State, and number fifth ranked Oklahoma, a loss for the Oklahoma State Cowboys appeared to possible. Except not possible against Texas Tech or Iowa State, but, Oklahoma ranked fifth in the country seemed very possible.

Though on Friday the 18th the number two Oklahoma State Cowboys would blow a 17 point lead against the Iowa State Cyclones and lose 37-31 in double overtime. It happened, the Cowboys lost which meant that Alabama pending a victory would move up to the number two spot.

Like expected, the Crimson Tide would defeat Georgia Southern 45-21 locking up the number two spot in the BCS rankings. However, just to make sure the number fourth ranked Oregon Ducks trailing right behind the Tide in the BCS rankings would lose as well.

The Ducks would lose to the USC Trojans 38-35 closing the book to their BCS Championship hopes. And just to make sure that Alabama really had it locked up; the number fifth ranked Oklahoma Sooners would lose to the number 22nd ranked Baylor Bears, 45-38.

Rather someone wished for this to happen on 11/11/11, or if this is a sign that the world is coming to an end, or maybe it’s just fait; who knows? But what we do know is come January as long as both teams, LSU and Alabama win out, the rematch and game that everyone was hoping and wishing, for will happen. I guess their really is a Santa Claus.
