Alabama National Champs

Alabama Crimson Tide beat LSU Tigers 21-0. Alabama was ranked number 2 at 11-1, LSU was ranked number 1 at 13-0. This was Alabama’s second BCS Bowl in 3 yrs. Last time Alabama played in the BCS Bowl was in January of 2010, when they beat Texas Longhorns. Alabama has 14 National Championships to their credit.

Alabama and LSU played a good defensive battle throughout the game. One problem, LSU was getting shutout and Alabama was getting points from field goals. Jeremy Shelley kicked a 23 yard field goal in the 1st quarter to give the Crimson Tide a 3-0 lead. In the 2nd quarter, Jeremy Shelley kicked two field goals. A 34 yard field goal to give the Crimson Tide a 6-0 lead early in the 2nd quarter. Then later in the quarter after he missed a field goal; Jeremy Shelley kicked a 41 yard field goal to give Alabama a 9-0 lead.

In the 3rd quarter, Alabama again stops LSU offense. Alabama got 2 more field goals by Jeremy Shelley. He hit a 35 yard field goal to give the Crimson Tide a 12-0 lead. Later after missing another field goal, Jeremy Shelley kicked a 44 yard field goal to increase Alabama’s lead to 15-0.

In the 4th quarter, Alabama finally nailed down the coffin to LSU. Trent Richardson scored a 34 yard touchdown run to make it 21-0 Alabama. Jeremy Shelley missed the extra point. Alabama’s quarterback AJ McCarron was marvelous. He was 23-34, 234 passing yards and no interceptions. LSU’s quarterback Jordan Jefferson had a rather forgettable night. He was 11-17, 53 passing yards and 1 interception.

This game was very similar to the first game that these two teams met in November. LSU beat Alabama in Tuscaloosa 9-6 in OT, last night it was all Alabama. Question now, who is really the number 1 team? LSU lost gave them a 13-1 record, Alabama is 12-1. Who is really the number 1 team in the country? I think most people now want a playoff system after what happened last night.
