2012 BCS National Championship Game Live Score Updates: Alabama Gets Second Field Goal For 6-0 Lead

The Alabama Crimson Tide have been able to get first downs on all of their drives to begin the 2012 BCS National Championship Game. But that hasn't translated to a big just yet, as LSU's defense stiffened again in its own territory and held Alabama to another Jeremy Shelley field goal, letting the Crimson Tide extend their lead, but only to 6-0.

Barkievious Mingo stopped Eddie Lacy for no gain on a third-and-one run in the second quarter to force Shelley to come out and attempt his third field goal of the night. After having his second try blocked earlier in the quarter, Shelley got this kick clear of LSU's line and put it between the uprights.

Both Lacy and Trent Richardson had success on the ground on the drive: Lacy ran for nine yards on a draw moments before being stopped, while Richardson ripped off a 20-yard run just plays before.
