Let's Play Again! LSU vs. Alabama for the Title

| No Comments

A rematch of SEC powerhouses for the national championship has been staged for Jan. 9 in New Orleans.
On Dec. 4, the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide beat out the No. 3 Oklahoma State Cowboys in the final round of BCS voting to capture another meeting with the undefeated No. 1 Louisiana State Tigers. The Tigers beat the Crimson Tide 9-6 in overtime on Nov. 5 in Tuscaloosa for Alabama's only loss on the season.
"Oklahoma State did enough with their schedule all year," ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit said. "But at the end of the day, in my opinion at least, the top two teams in the country will be playing for the national championship."
Even though both teams finished 11-1, and Oklahoma State was ahead of Alabama in the computer ratings, the Crimson Tide finished second in the Harris and coaches' polls used to decide who plays for the national title.
With both teams representing the Southeastern Conference, it marks the sixth straight year that a team from that conference has been a representative in the BCS national title game. One of them is guaranteed to be crowned champions.
