Allstate BCS National Championship
Playing in their home-away-from-home, the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, the second-ranked LSU Tigers captured the 2008 Allstate BCS National Championship by thumping the top-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes 38-24. With the victory, the Tigers became the first two-time champion in the 10-year history of the BCS, having also captured the title in 2003.
Like they had done so many times during the season, the Tigers were forced to come from behind, trailing 10-0 early in the game. Led by their fifth-year senior quarterback, Matt Flynn, the Tigers stormed back to score 31 unanswered points. Flynn dominated one of college football’s best defenses with four touchdown passes, earning him the game’s Outstanding Offensive Player award.
After LSU tied the game at 10, the Buckeyes seemed poised to retake the lead. When the Buckeyes lined up for the potential go-ahead field goal, the game’s Outstanding Defensive Player, LSU lineman, Ricky Jean-Francois, stormed up the middle to block the kick and allowed the Tigers to regain the momentum. Moments later, LSU took the lead for good, claiming their third National Championship in school history.
