The girlfriend of the Bama long snapper said they would win the championship shortly before she was killed by the Tuscaloosa tornado last spring....ESPN reported in the pre-game.

Dear advertisers: I didn't watch your rematch.

Ok ok the SEC is the best conference. They're also the most boring conference.

South Jordan, UT

Did I miss it?

I didn't watch the game, but seeing the results make me think that the final AP top 3 will be:
1. Alabama
2. Oklahoma State
3. LSU

Possibly both Bama and OSU will receive votes for first. That's my guess.

The result wasn't a surprise to anyone who has followed the two teams over the past several years..... For Tide fans perhaps as much danger as it presents we'd be better off playing the next decade only in Louisiana cuz it is only in Tuscaloosa or Birmingham that the tide seems to lose to the tiger kittens. Great outcome, but not a very good game.... Is it great defense or miserably poor offense? I'd like to see Alabama v Oklahoma State and LSU against Baylor..... See how the SEC really piles up against the Big XII.

A playoff is needed, not this 1-game 2-team opinion poll matchup....

A Craig James/Adam James whine-off would have been more fun.

Was this a re-run?? This was a great game if you like boredom and field goals. What a joke. It is obvious why the BCS doesn't want a playoff system - it would expose these teams for what they are. Herbstreet and his sidekick did their best to spin it into an "epic" defensive battle. For my money I would rather have seen a Boise State v. Oklahoma State match up.

10-1 odds that Oklahoma State would have beaten Alabama. We will never know. The BCS is a joke to have a team that didn't even win (or play) for their conference championship win the national title.

Cedar City, UT

Didn't watch it, didn't care. Come on D news, be brave take a stand, refuse to call it a National championship. Just call it by the bowl game and lump it with all the other gazillion bowl games that have depleted all the fun out of competition. Call it whatever you want to. They do by calling it a National championship. IF they make stuff up, so can you.


After that weak performance by LSU they should be ranked below OU State, Stanford, Oregon, BSU, and other one loss programs.

Vernal, UT

I've always said the best thing about golf and baseball is you can watch the first 15 minutes - take a nice nap - watch the last 10 minutes and not miss anything. Now the same can be said for the BCS Championship. What a joke.

An excellent question and of course one for which we will never get an answer to. Would love to see either of these SEC teams matched against Oregon or OKSt -- Teams with incredible offenses. But that's not going to happen, is it? Because we'd hate to embarrass the SEC's alleged supremacy. I really don't understand why there isn't more unhappiness with the present system that locks out anyone but whoever the "experts" deem worthy of the "championship" game.

We knew it was going to be a boring game. I saw (2 3/4 qtr) it on internet, not impressed. Yeah, my prediction was way off and thought of scorless game till 10th OT. Who knows, another rematch 2013 with Bama & LSU III or SEC II. Come on Obama, do something, I forgot here, politics should not be involved.

Morgan, UT

Wow, what a great BCS climax...it rivals when I cleaned my bathroom medicine cabinet.

The Moose
Southern, UT

They allowed an outsider to play the SEC once in the Sugar Bowl and it didn't work out too well for the SEC. Doubt that it will happen again. It's kind of ironic that Utah's victory actually probably shut doors for others rather than opening them.

Layton, Utah

Phew, its a good thing that the "NC" lived up to all the hype.

Couldn't agree more with all the comments. First time I am glad I don't have ESPN and didn't waste my entire night watching this snoozefest.

Yep OSU and all the rest didn't deserve to be on the field with these two teams. Nope not at all. Love the Espn spin on the front page.

"Without A Doubt Alabama destroyed LSU and any confusion about who's the champion." Huh? They are 1-1 against each other, I would say there is plenty of doubt who the real best team in football is. Maybe they should play a best out of 3. What a joke.
