Well one thing’s for sure we still haven’t seen the previously unbeaten LSU Tigers score a touchdown versus the Alabama Crimson Tide.
In last night’s BCS Championship between LSU & Bama there were no heroics from the man now known as The Honey Badger, there was no last second field goal to win the ball game, and as a matter of fact the SEC Champion Tigers offensive presence was nonexistent.
With the Crimson tide leading 9-0 at halftime I was more than sure LSU would make it a ball game in the second half however that second half surge that we saw versus Arkansas and UGA never happened.
Alabama’s defense clamped down on LSU holding them to only 92 yards of offense as they shutout the nation’s former #1 team 21-0.
Trent Richardson rushed for 96 yards on 20 carries including a 34-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter that sealed the deal for the Crimson Tide in the BCS National Championship Game but, it was Alabama kicker Jeremy Shelley that had a night to remember hitting five field goals ranging from 23-44 yards.
Alabama QB A.J. McCarron finished the night with 234 passing yard and was named offensive MVP of this year’s game.
I really can’t point out one good thing the Tigers in last night’s loss, Jordan Jefferson was 11-of-17 for 53 yards and an interception and the LSU run game was dismal gaining only 39 yards on 27 carries.
The Crimson Tide ends the season 12-and-1 and LSU finishes with a record of 13-and-1.
Alabama received 54 first-place votes and No. 2 LSU got one.
The (12-1) Big 12 champion Oklahoma State was No. 3 and received four first-place votes.
Oregon came in fourth and Arkansas was fifth, giving the SEC three of the top five teams in the nation.
