The #2 BCS-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide shutout the #1 LSU Tigers 21-0 to win their second BCS National Championship in three years.

Bama’s defense was suffocating all night long, swarming to the ball on running plays and harassing LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson.  LSU’s offense went 3-and-out 6 times during the game and only managed 5 first downs on 93 yards of offense. Also, they weren’t able to cross midfield until there were 8 minutes left in the game.

Alabama’s scoring mainly came from their kicker, Jeremy Shelley.  He made 5/7 field goals, and missed one extra point, accounting for 15 of Alabama’s points.

The lone touchdown of the game was scored late in the fourth quarter.  Alabama running back Trent Richardson broke free on a run through the left side of the line and scored on a 34 yard run.

The loss for LSU was the first-ever BCS shutout, and it was also coach Les Miles’ first career loss in a BCS bowl game.

A team from the SEC has won the last 6 BCS National Championship games.
