BCS Bowl Games: LSU, Alabama Will Meet Again For BCS Championship

The final BCS Standings are out, and the SEC will win its sixth straight BCS championship regardless of what happens. Alabama was able to hold off a charge from Oklahoma State for the No. 2 spot to earn a rematch with LSU for the National Championship. The Crimson Tide's only loss was a 9-6 overtime loss to No. 1 LSU, but that was viewed as a better loss than Oklahoma State or Stanford, who will finish at No. 3 and No. 4, respectively:

The Alabama Crimson Tide were considered the heavy favorites to face the LSU Tigers in the BCS National Championship Game heading into this past weekend, before the Cowboys gave pollsters plenty to think about. Ultimately it wasn't enough, however, with the top three teams in the final BCS rankings of the regular season looking exactly the same from the week before: No. 1 LSU, No. 2 Alabama, No. 3 Oklahoma State.

As for the remaining BCS games, the Rose Bowl will feature Oregon vs. Wisconsin after each team won its conference championship game this past weekend. Montee Ball will have a chance to break Barry Sanders' single-season NCAA touchdowns mark. he is currently one score back with 38 touchdowns this season.

The Fiesta Bowl will look like an excellent semi-final in a plus one scenario, as No. 3 Oklahoma State will play Andrew Luck and No. 4 Stanford. The Sugar bowl will see the Michigan Wolverines take on Virginia Tech, as the Hokies earned a surprising at large bid after losing the ACC championship game to Clemson. Finally, the Orange Bowl will see ACC champion Clemson will face Big East champion West Virginia.
