NEW ORLEANS — After a bowl season full of offensive shootouts, LSU coach Les Miles says to expect some "big boy football" when his top-ranked Tigers take on No. 2 Alabama in BCS title game Monday night.
Miles and Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban each had their final news conferences before the championship on Sunday morning, and posed for photos with the crystal BCS trophy.
Miles says that he expects the game to be "big boy football. And I'd expect it to be very, very physical."
The two SEC teams met on Nov. 5, with LSU pulling out a 9-6 overtime win.
Saban says he's telling players to focus on the opportunity in front of them, not the pressure. His Crimson Tide won the national championship two years ago, beating Texas.
