BCS National Championship 2012: LSU Kicker At Home In Superdome

The first meeting between the LSU Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide in 2011 was settled by field goals --  three for LSU, two for Alabama. If the rematch in the 2012 BCS National Championship Game follows the same pattern, Tigers kicker Drew Alleman's familiarity with the Mercedes-Benz Superdome may give LSU an edge, notes Scott Rabalais of The Advocate.

"It’s been awhile, but you kind of know your surroundings," Alleman said of the Superdome. "I went to (this year’s) state championship game, and the field is still the same. Having played there, you know your targets are still the same. It’s like being at home again."

Alleman kicked the game-winning field goal in the 2006 Class 5A State Championship at the Superdome. In 2011, the junior kicker was 16-of-18 on field goal attempts, including 3-for-3 against Alabama in Tuscaloosa on November 5, in his first season as the Tigers' full-time place-kicker.
