Editor’s Pick: Tigers vs.The Tide Part Two

by Brittney Franklin on January 9, 2012

LSU and Alabama will rematch tonight in the 2012 BCS National Championship. The Tigers and the Crimson Tide faced off in 2011 with the Tigers edging out a win after three field goals. Hosted at the Mercedes-Benz Superbowl, a venue kicker Drew Alleman is familiar with. He kicked the winning field goal at the 2006 Class 5A State Championship in the Dome. Said Alleman to The Advocate: “It’s been awhile, but you kind of know your surroundings. I went to (this year’s) state championship game, and the field is still the same. Having played there, you know your targets are still the same. It’s like being at home again.” The BCS National Championship kicks off tonight at 7:30 p.m. on ESPN.
