Bama bashes Notre Dame 42-14 in BCS title game

Posted:

 

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) -- Alabama rolled to its second consecutive BCS championship, and third in four seasons, beating No. 1 Notre Dame 42-14 in a BCS championship game that was no classic after all. 
   AJ McCarron threw four touchdown passes and Eddie Lacy ran for 140 yards and scored twice for the second-ranked Crimson Tide, which scored on its first three drives and cruised from there. 
   Alabama (13-1) became the third team to win three national titles in four seasons since polls started being used to crown champions in 1936, and the first since Nebraska from 1994-97. 
   Tide coach Nick Saban now has won four national championships. Only Alabama's Paul "Bear" Bryant, with six, has more. 
   The Fighting Irish (12-1) didn't score until they were down 35-0 late in the third quarter.
