LSU Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide to play 2012 BCS National Championship game

The #2 Crimson Tide edged out Oklahoma State in the final round of voting and will play the top-ranked Tigers in the BCS National Championship Game on Jan 9 2012 in New Orleans.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys made a late surge by beating Oklahoma 44-10 on Saturday night, and closed the gap between themselves and Alabama in the polls. But it was not enough to avoid the first title game rematch in the 14-year history of the BCS.

Alabama (11-1) finished second in both the Harris and coaches' polls by a wide enough margin to make up for the fact that Oklahoma State was ahead in the computer ratings.


The Oklahoma State Cowboys (11-1), champions of the Big 12, will play in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl against #4 Stanford from the Pac-12.

The Allstate Sugar Bowl will feature two teams that earned at-large bids: #11 Virginia Tech and #13 Michigan.

The #10 ranked Wisconsin Badgers, the Big Ten champion, will play the Pac-12 champion #5 Oregon in the Rose Bowl Game.

The Discover Orange Bowl will feature #15 Clemson, the ACC champion, and Big East co-champion West Virginia.
