In just a few short weeks, we will get our own Christmas present in the college football world when the big rematch happens with the No. 1-ranked LSU Tigers taking on the No. 2-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide.
While many speculate whether or not these two teams should face off again, the BCS system chose these two teams. While you may not agree, this is the matchup and it will be a massive game for the fans of these two teams and the SEC.
No matter who wins, the SEC will have its sixth straight BCS National Championship, which probably gets many fans in an uproar, especially if you're from a certain place in Oklahoma.
But until a playoff or plus-one system is added in, we will have to put up with what the computers of the BCS give us.
The thing is, I believe the best two teams in the nation are playing in this game.
Yes, they both were in a hard-fought matchup back in November. LSU won, and we figured it was over with these two. The thing was, Alabama barely lost this game, was controlling it all night long, but failed to win due to missed kicks.
Had Alabama made even half of those kicks, they might be ranked No. 1 right now instead of LSU—who by the way, due to its scheduling and the way teams fared this year, may have been No. 2 behind Alabama.
We know this game will be interesting. Will Alabama control it just like before, but do other things differently in order to score more? Who knows. In any case, this game will be a fun watch.
To me, the BCS worked well in getting these two teams back together again. Here's why.
