It did not take long on Monday night for viewers to see which team was better in the BCS National Championship. It took the Alabama Crimson Tide a little less than three minutes to march 82 yards and score the game’s first touchdown to go up 7-0 on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

Then the Irish then went three and out again. Alabama scored again and that pretty much took the fight out of the fighting Irish.

They were up 35-0 before the Irish scored. Alabama won the game 42-14. That was their second straight national title and third in four years.

Twitter went wild when ESPN commentator Brent Musburger (age 73), said, “You see that lovely lady there, she does go to Auburn, but she’s also Miss Alabama and that’s AJ McCarron’s girlfriend.” He then added, “You quarterbacks, you get all the good looking women. What a beautiful woman. Wow.”
