  • Alabama Slammer

    Alabama defeated LSU 21-0, the first shutout in a BCS Championship game

    ESPN earned a 13.8 overnight Nielsen rating for last night's BCS National Championship game, which saw Alabama defeat LSU 21-0. That figure is down 14.3% from a 16.1 overnight for last year's Auburn-Oregon matchup, ESPN's highest-rated telecast ever. Last year's game came down to Auburn kicking a field goal on the last play to win. When fast-national data comes in later today, the Alabama-LSU game will likely rank as the net's fourth largest audience ever, behind only Auburn-Oregon and two "MNF" games.
