Ducks-Tide would be awesome
If someone had said before the game that LSU would have more first downs, would rush for 139 yards on the nation’s stingiest defense, and Zach Mettenberger would complete 25 of 36 passes for 296 yards and have no interceptions, I’d have said the Tigers would win.
If I had known they were going to hold the Alabama’s offense to 331 total yards, I would have said they won by a touchdown.
All of that happened, but so did seven penalties for 51 yards (to one for 15 for the Tide), some questionable play calling and the Crimson Tide appears headed to a second BCS National Championship game because they found a way to win on their final possession of a great game.
Hopefully the Tide will play Oregon. The Ducks offense is like a track team on a double dose of speed running down hill.
Oregon racked up 730 yards on Southern Cal, the preseason favorite to make it to the BCS Championship game. The Ducks offense is its defense.
While it had to be a bitter pill for the LSU fans, especially getting the Crimson Tide at home at night, it does probably mean the SEC will have a shot at its seventh consecutive BCS National Championship.
