Though the Alabama Crimson Tide nearly played the LSU Tigers to a stalemate in their first battle, the Tigers will dominate the rematch in the 2012 BCS Championship.
LSU has stomped all comers this season, beating six teams that finished in the final BCS rankings, including three of the top six.
Only Alabama was able to keep the game within single digits, and the Tigers certainly didn't bring their best effort in that game. Since escaping Tuscaloosa unscathed, LSU returned to form, hammering its remaining opponents by an average of 34 points per game.
LSU is the best team in the country. The Tigers have proven it all season. On January 9th in New Orleans, they’ll do it again.
