NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Too much Matt Flynn. Too much Glenn Dorsey.
LSU is the BCS champion after scoring 31 straight points in a
38-24 win over Ohio State in the title game at New Orleans.
Flynn led the Tigers' offense with four touchdown passes, three
coming while LSU was turning a 10-0 deficit into a 31-10 lead by
the third quarter. Flynn was 19-of-27 for 174 yards to help the
Tigers become the first team to win two BCS titles since the series
rankings began in 1998.
Dorsey led a defense that blanked the Buckeyes for more than 37
consecutive minutes, allowing the Tigers to take control. The
Tigers' defense didn't wilt after Beanie Wells scored on a 65-yard
run on the fourth play of the game.
Jacob Hester added a rushing touchdown for the Tigers, whose
title hopes appeared to be over when they lost to Arkansas in
overtime the day after Thanksgiving.
Todd Boeckman threw for 208 yards and two touchdown but also had a pair of interceptions. Wells had 146 yards on 20 carries.
Both teams finish the year 11-and-2.
