Alabama shuts out LSU, 21-0 to reclaim national title

Post  Admin on Tue Jan 10, 2012 11:18 am

In the state of Louisiana, the Alabama Crimson Tide entered the Superdome and shut down the LSU Tigers, 21-0 in the BCS Championship game. It's Alabama's second national title in three years.

The Crimson Tide also claimed the top spot in the final Associated Press poll for the eighth time, tying Notre Dame for the most of any team in college football. Coach Nick Saban’s team was an overwhelming choice with 55 of 60 first-place votes.

LSU beat the Crimson Tide (12-1) in overtime on Nov. 5, 9-6, in a game in which points were made by field goals instead of touchdowns.

The Crimson Tide, piling up 384 yards & 21 first downs and Saban has now won a pair of BCS titles at Alabama, plus another at LSU in 2003. He’s the first coach to win three BCS titles, denying LSU’s Les Miles his second championship.
