The college football season will finally reach its conclusion Monday night. After 34 lesser bowls have come and gone, some memorable and others not, the final college football bowl remains, and it is the most important of all. The BCS National Championship Game will be held Monday night, between the No. 1 LSU Tigers and the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide, the main item on the sports television landscape.
BCS National Championship Game
Records: LSU (13-0), Alabama (11-1)
Location: The Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana
Time: 5:30 p.m. PST
TV: ESPN and ESPN3.com, with Brent Musberger, Kirk Herbstreit, Erin Andrews, and Tom Rinaldi on the broadcast

Rematch: These two teams played each other in Alabama on November 5, with LSU prevailing in overtime 9-6.
Six Straight: No matter who wins Monday night, the Southeastern Conference will have its sixth BCS champion in the last six years. Save us Matt Barkley, you're our only hope!
Long Layoffs: It has been 37 days since LSU last played, and 44 days since Alabama last played.
The Favorite: this is a pick 'em, per Top Bet.
The Pick: I'll take LSU to stay undefeated, though it would be fun to see just how close the Associated Press poll would be if Alabama won, creating two one-loss teams with losses to each other.
