LSU Bashes Ohio State!

In this years college National Championship football game the LSU Tigers totally dominated the Ohio State Buckeyes in a 38-24 victory. The Tigers came into the game as the first team to ever play in a national championship game with 2 losses. The Buckeyes came into the game hoping to prove themselves worthy after a disappointing loss in last years title game and also a loss to Michigan.

The Buckeyes came out on their first drive of the night after receiving the opening kickoff and ended up taking a run in from 65 yards out. This proved to be the longest touchdown run in a National Championship game. The Tigers offense then took to the field for their first drive of the night. Things seemed to be going alright for the Tigers until miscommunication by the center and the quarterback led to a 4th and long forcing the Tigers to punt. The Buckeyes then took their next drive down deep into Tiger territory before being stopped and having to settle for a field goal. After the 10-0 Buckeye lead, it snapped the Tigers back into football action where they scored 24 unanswered points to take a 24-10 halftime lead.

The second half started out with LSU receiving the ball and marching far into Buckeye territory before giving the ball back to Ohio State. The teams had a few three and outs to start to second until early in the fourth quarter LSU scored once more after an Ohio State fumble gave them great field position. With this score the Tigers greatened their lead to 31-10 where it stayed till about 4 minutes left in the fourth when the Buckeyes found the end zone but by this time their was almost no hope. each team managed to cross the goal line once more by the end of the game leaving the score at 38-24 in LSU's favor.

With this win it makes LSU the only team to ever win a National Championship with 2 losses and also gives them their third in school history.
