On January 7, the 11-2 Louisiana State Tigers will find themselves in the BCS title game, the first two-loss team ever to play in the national championship. The Tigers were ranked second in the AP poll following yet another weekend of No. 1 and No. 2 teams dropping like rocks. Facing LSU will be Ohio State, with an 11-1 record, reports AP.
Although the voting is over, the complaining has only just begun, as the distinction between LSU and other 11-2 teams isn't exactly vast. What pushed the Tigers into the No. 2 spot seems to be their tough schedule—the Southeastern Conference is no cake walk—and the fact that both defeats were so close they took triple overtime periods to decide.
