08:18 AM ET 12.05 | Having produced 15 points earlier this year, the "Game of the Century" will now have its rematch between Alabama and LUS. The two rivals will hook up again for all the marbles in the Allstate BCS championship game Jan. 9 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. ... LSU will attempt to win its third BCS title in New Orleans after winning during the 2003 and 2007 seasons. "There may be more entertaining matchups, but I think it's fair," said LSU Coach Les Miles, who led LSU to the 2007 title. "If you have to pick No. 1 and No. 2, I think they've done that best. I think there some really (compelling) arguments for other teams to play in this game. I understand them. That being said, I think they got the matchup right."

Just watched Andy Staples video about how the SEC tried to institute a playoff in 2008 but the other conferences blocked it. Hilarious.

Mow if Bama were to beat them, and Okie Lite won their's big time, then Okie Lite could say they should be the NC and should have had the shot, making it a split NC again.But, of course, that won't happen, LSU will win this one too, by a lot larger margin too.

If Bama beats LSU then it also proves Bama should have been there too.

LSU received every first place vote for the BCS, a perfect 1000 score.

I can't imagine any possible argument where someone else would get 1st place votes.

Joe will be very happy, at least until they lose to LSU by a bunch.

LSU has to score a bunch for Bama to lose by a bunch. Don't they?

It is not a NCG, it is a BCS championship.

Because Jim Deleny will shoot down any playoff scenarios and the BCS bowls throw great parties.

They can dish out the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ without playing. Just gather up in NOLA and have a party in the Superdome.
