For the first time in football history, two SEC teams will square off in the BCS National Championship Game.
The LSU Tigers and the Alabama Crimson Tide will play Monday night in New Orleans in one of the most highly anticipated games ever.
LSU, ranked #1 in the nation will be playing in their 12th straight bowl game – while Alabama, #2, has 13 national championships under its belt and has made 58 bowl appearances in its history.
If Alabama wins – they will bring the national championship to the state of Alabama 3 years in a row, with Alabama winning the 2009 championship and Auburn taking 2010 honors.
LSU is a slight favorite in the game but the two teams are evenly matched. LSU defeated Alabama in early November in Tuscaloosa, 9-6, in a hard fought battle.
Another thought is that this football season could possibly become a historical split championship if all the factors line up, according to some speculators. If Alabama defeats LSU – they could be involved in a split championship between themselves and Oklahoma State.
The game will be broadcast on ESPN, Monday, Jan. 9, at 7:30 p.m.
