They say that "defense wins championships," and the Alabama defense certainly proved that in 2011.
The Crimson Tide allowed only 12 touchdowns all season en route to the 2011 BCS National Championship.
What team is going to have the scariest defense in college football in 2012?
LSU loses a few pieces off of its defense, but gets back Heisman Trophy finalist Tyrann Mathieu and bookend defensive ends Sam Montgomery and Barkevious Mingo. Head coach Les Miles and defensive coordinator John Chavis have built that roster to a point where it no longer rebuilds—it reloads.
In East Lansing, Mark Dantonio has built quite a solid roster on the defensive side of the ball. The Spartans finished ranked No 6 in the country in total defense, and William Gholston and Co. are back for more in 2012.
