Well, no more undefeated teams in NCAAF.
Looks like it'll be the Big 12 Champs vs. the SEC Champs for the National Championship.
Instead, they self-destructed because of five personal-foul penalties in the game’s first 35 minutes. All five either led directly to an L.S.U. score or ended an Ohio State drive without points. “You really can’t compare it to anything,” Buckeyes running back Chris Wells said. “To go to a national championship twice and lose. It’s incredible.”The sequence that best summed up the game for Ohio State came on the first possession of the second half when Ohio State’s Austin Spitler looked as if he was about to block an L.S.U. punt. He inexplicably missed, landing on L.S.U. punter Patrick Fisher after Fisher somehow managed to get away a clean kick. Spitler was then flagged for a personal foul for roughing the kicker, and all the typically unemotional Buckeyes coach Jim Tressel could do was shake his head and mutter in disbelief. As if on cue, the freshman defensive tackle Cameron Heyward followed that penalty with another 15-yard personal foul. L.S.U. scored on a 4-yard touchdown pass from Flynn to Early Doucet three plays later to boost its lead to 31-10 and essentially turn the second half into a giant celebration for L.S.U. fans.
