LSU vs. Alabama 2011: Why Winner Will Win the National Championship
The winner of Alabama-LSU will unquestionably win the 2011 BCS National Championship. Southeastern Conference schools have won the past five championships in college football. The reason why is because of the competition and talent level of the conference.
Even though most consider the SEC to be down in 2011, you can’t deny the fact that teams have to bring it every given weekend unless they could be upset.
You could actually make a strong case that the loser of this game, given it a marginal defeat, should only slide a few spots down the totem pole. Oklahoma State will be ranked No. 2 no matter what, but anything after that is still in question.
The loser should be in front of Boise State and possibly even Stanford, given on how many points they lose by, of course.
This is considered the “Game of the Century” and it will certainly live up to the hype.
Both defenses are top-tier in the college football ranks. They have talent littered with first and second round NFL prospects.
Alabama is first and LSU is second. Offensively, while both programs have their share of struggles (at least compared to their defense) they both have talent at every skill position.
Trent Richardson is a true Heisman candidate rushing for 989 yards and 17 touchdowns. This will be his “Heisman moment” type of game. He will need to come through, especially in a Crimson Tide victory, if he plans on winning the award.
Both have tricky games left on their schedule but both will become better football teams after this game. Alabama travels to Auburn at the end of the season. LSU hosts Arkansas on the final game of their schedule.
The winner of this game will put themselves in a great position to be in the national championship game.
Seeing how the SEC has won the past five national title games, how could you go against them?
