Alabama won their 14th College Football National Championship on Monday, January 9, 2012, by defeating the LSU Tigers 21-0 inside the New Orleans Superdome. Their 21-0 victory was a defensive game that included a BCS Championship Game record of five field goals from place kicker, Jeremy Shelley and one touchdown from running back, Trent Richardson. Richardson's 34 yard run clinched the win with 4:36 left in the game. The Crimson Tide allowed only five first downs and held the Tigers to 179 yards of total offense. This marked the first time in the history of the BCS that a team was shutout in the National Championship Game.
