2012 BCS National Championship Game: Alabama Enjoying Field Goal Festival, Leads 12-0

At this rate, the Alabama Crimson Tide might get to 21 points in the 2012 BCS National Championship Game against LSU on threes alone. Alabama keeps connecting from deep rather than scoring touchdowns, and Jeremy Shelley's field goal to cap its first drive of the second half produced a 12-0 lead.

SI.com: Live LSU-Alabama box score

As was the case in the first half, Alabama's passing game is allowing it to move the ball nearly at will against LSU. A.J. McCarron found Darius Hanks and Kenny Bell on that first drive to get the Crimson Tide into field goal range, and has thrown for 206 yards on the night.

Shelley has made three of four field goal attempts tonight, and his only miss came on a block. The 35-yarder to extend Alabama's lead in the third quarter was the longest field goal of the night.
