Alabama beats Notre Dame to take another BCS Title
Alabama won their second straight title and third title in the last four years last night as the Crimson Tide beat the Notre Dame Fighting Irish 42-14.
Bama quarterback AJ McClarron shined throughout the game, completing four touchdowns and 20 of 28 passes for 264 yards, according to CBS News. McClarron also passed the school record with 49 career passing touchdowns with a year left to play, as he announced he’ll return for his senior season instead of turning pro.
Tailback Eddie Lacy also contributed to his team’s win, earning the game’s offensive MVP title and having one of his best performances of the year.
Notre Dame was playing in its first national championship in 24 years, finishing in the top of the ranks at the end of the regular season. Alabama proved to be the stronger team though, dominating them throughout the entire game.
“This group has a lot of experience, and they play with a lot of consistency,” Alabama head coach Nick Saban told ESPN. “And the power, the toughness, how physical they are, I think is probably a pretty unique quality.”
