For the second year in a row, there was little drama in the BCS Championship game thanks to a dominant Alabama team. Last year, the Crimson Tide defense stuffed LSU in a 21-0 win. Monday night in Miami, Nick Saban's team jumped on Notre Dame early with touchdowns on their first three drives while the defense clamped down on the Fighting Irish.
Alabama carried a 28-0 lead into the locker room courtesy of a pair of A.J. McCarron touchdown tosses and scoring runs from Eddie Lacy and T.J. Yeldon. Notre Dame matched the Crimson Tide point for point in the second half, to no avail. When the clock tumbled to all zero's, Alabama had a 42-14 win and a repeat performance as the BCS Champions.
