2012 BCS National Championship Game Halftime Score: Alabama Leads LSU 9-0 After Cade Foster Field Goal

Marquis Maze's injury early in the 2012 BCS National Championship Game has left Alabama without its finest wide receiver. The Crimson Tide have gotten help from Kevin Norwood and Darius Hanks, though, and Cade Foster hit a field goal to end the first half with Alabama up 9-0 on LSU.

Norwood and Hanks both made catches on Alabama's final drive of the first half to get Foster, the Tide's long-distance field goal kicker, in position to make a field goal from 41 yards out.

Foster was happy about that field goal, as you can see.

Norwood had three catches for 54 yards in the first half, and Hanks added three for 34 yards; both receivers helped out A.J. McCarron, who has thrown for 156 yards on 25 passes so far.

In over six quarters of play between these two teams in the 2011 college football season, though, there have been eight field goals and no touchdowns.
