Alabama wins BCS National Championship

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Alabama is on top of college football
again, thanks to its big-play defense and punishing ground game.
The No. 1 Crimson Tide held off a rally by second-ranked Texas
and beat the Longhorns 37-21 on Thursday night in the BCS title
game with help from a late fumble recovery by Courtney Upshaw at
the Texas 3-yard line.
Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram then scored a clinching
touchdown from 1 yard out with just more than two minutes left in
the game.
Alabama's Marcell Dareus knocked out Texas quarterback Colt
McCoy on the Longhorns' first possession and later scored on a
28-yard interception return just before halftime.
The victory makes Tide coach Nick Saban the first coach to win
BCS titles at two schools - Alabama and LSU.
