LSU vs. Alabama: Previewing the 2012 BCS National Championship Game

It has been a tremendous college football bowl season. From record-setting offensive performances in the Alamo Bowl and Orange Bowl to overtime thrillers in the Fiesta Bowl and Outback Bowl, to unexpected instant classics in the Sun Bowl and the New Orleans Bowl, there has been no shortage of excitement.

But the time finally comes on Monday, Jan. 9 for the game everyone has been waiting for—the 2012 BCS National Championship Game. While many college football fans are displeased with the game being a rematch between two teams from the Southeastern Conference, the LSU Tigers and the Alabama Crimson Tide, they are legitimately the two best teams in the nation.

LSU won the first matchup, a road game at Alabama on Nov. 5, 9-6 in overtime.

This game will be played on Jan. 9 at 8:30 p.m. ET in New Orleans, La., at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The game will be televised on ESPN.
