The number-one-ranked Fighting Irish didn't have much fight in them on Monday night, as the Alabama Crimson Tide crushed Notre Dame 42-14 in the BCS Championship Game.
It's Alabama's second consecutive title and third in four seasons. The Tide was led by quarterback AJ McCarron, who threw for four touchdowns, while Eddie Lacy rushed for 140 yards and two touchdowns in the second biggest route in BCS history. Notre Dame didn't even get on the scoreboard until late in the third quarter after 'Bama was already up 35-0. Not even Rudy could have helped them.
The win is the fourth national championship for Tide coach Nick Saban, putting him just two championships by Alabama legend Paul "Bear" Bryant.
