Joe D'Amico's NCAAF Game of the Year Nat'l Champinship
Alabama vs. LSU,
01/09/2012 20:30 EDT,
Score: 21 - 0
Point Spread: +2/-105 LSU
Mondays winner is LSU over Alabama. This is my NCAAF Game of the Year.
This is the first time in the 13 year history of the BCS that 2 teams from the same conference will play for the title. The same 22 players that started for Alabama against LSU also started their season finale vs. Auburn. The only real change for LSU is at QB. Jordan Jefferson is locked in at the top spot. Special Teams will play a big part in this matchup and as we all know the advantage there goes to the Tigers. Statistically, LSU has played the toughest schedule in the nation this season. There is no need to talk about 'Bama's Kicker so let's talk about LSU's leg-man. Drew Alleman is 16 of 18 on the season and 3 for 3 from 40 or more yards. The LSU "D" has held RB Trent Richardson to just 30 carries, 144 YR, and 0 TDs. The Tigers are deep on the DL and their secondary resembles that of an NFL unit. The major difference here is the double-threat of QB, Jefferson. So I anticipate the mistake-free LSU squad to add to their national-leading +22 TO margin. They are 5-1 ATS their L6 Bowl games, 8-1 ATS their L9 games vs. teams with a winning record, and 7-0 ATS their L7 Conference games. Take LSU. Thank you.
