BCS National Championship Game 2012 Live Updates: Alabama Winning Battle Of Punts, Field Goals

The 2012 BCS National Championship Game has become a game of short drives and Alabama field goals, and the Crimson Tide got another one midway through the third quarter, despite A.J. McCarron finding Kevin Norwood for 26 yards to begin it.

Alabama hasn't been made to go three and out yet, but even the Crimson Tide's bad drives are working out: McCarron's throw to Norwood allowed the Tide to get near midfield, meaning that even the eventual punt was a chance to flip the field on LSU.

That punt turned into a touchback, much to Dre Kirkpatrick's chagrin, but asking LSU's offense to go 80 yards against Alabama's defense tonight may be too much to ask.
