2012 BCS National Championship Game Preview:
The SEC conference is set to claim its 6th straight National Championship in College Football, as the Alabama Crimson Tide and LSU Tigers are set to play for the title. Alabama & LSU is a rematch of the defensive battle these two schools waged in the regular-season; a game the Tigers won 9-6 in overtime. The big questions are whether LSU can defeat Alabama twice in one season and whether either team will score a touchdown in the Championship Game. Crimson Tide Head Coach Nick Saban is playing for his 3rd championship ring, while Tigers head man, Les Miles, is trying to win his second ring with LSU. These two great fan bases should have an amazing time in the Big Easy, as this Championship will be decided steps from Bourbon Street in the New Orleans Superdome.
2011 BCS National Championship Game Preview:
While we believe this year’s BCS National Championship Game is going to be great for everyone, we’re inclined to think it will be a game especially loved by the offensively-minded. The Auburn Tigers and Oregon Ducks, behind quarterbacks Cam Newton and Darron Thomas, don’t hold back when it comes to putting scores up on the board. Considering both these teams are playing in their first BCS Championship game, we have a feeling this won’t be where they begin.
Against a tough Pac-10 schedule, the Ducks put up the most prolific scoring team in the nation, along with the fourth-best rushing total. Heisman candidate LaMichael James has rushed for 1,682 yards and 21 touchdowns, and Thomas tossed for over 2,500 yards and 28 touchdowns in only his sophomore year. Against the three ranked teams they faced this year, the Ducks offense outscored them by a margin of 153-92. It’s going to be this kind of effort needed to beat Auburn, led by one of the most electrifying players in recent memory.
Cam Newton is past the controversy and has one thing on his mind—beating Oregon for Auburns first national title since 1957. The junior will be able to do it on the ground or in the air, since he’s the first player since Tim Tebow to both throw and run for 20 or more touchdowns in the same season.While the Tigers have kept their games closer than the Ducks have, they’ve always willed their way to a win, and never was that more true than their 28-27 comeback win over Alabama.
If the Ducks want to win the title, they’re going to have to be relentless on the scoreboard, which means this should be a game that will come down to the last quarter and remembered for a long time.
2010 BCS National Championship Game Preview:
The 2010 BCS Championship Game will surely be one for the ages. The National Championship Game will matchup two of the most storied programs in college football - the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Texas Longhorns. The Tide are winners of the SEC and come into the game led by running back Mark Ingram and quarterback Greg McElroy. Alabama's head coach Nick Saban returns to the National Championship Game, where he won a title with the LSU Tigers in 2004.
The Texas Longhorns are led by quarterback Colt McCoy, receiver Jordan Shipley and a very talented defense. Head Coach Mack Brown has won a BCS national title at the Rose Bowl already, so he will be looking to add another crystal football to his collection. The 2010 BCS Championship game will likely be a defensive struggle, because while both teams have talented offenses, their defensive teams are outstanding. Alabama versus the Longhorns in the Rose Bowl - it's hard to imagine a much more historic matchup for a college football bowl game.
