Playing in their home away from home, the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, the second ranked LSU Tigers captured the 2008 Allstate BCS National Championship by thumping the top ranked Ohio State Buckeyes 38-24. With the victory, the Tigers became the first two time champion in the 10 year history of the BCS, having also captured the title in 2003. Like they had so many times during the season, the Tigers were forced to come from behind in the biggest game of the year, trailing 10-0 early on. Led by fifth-year senior quarterback Matt Flynn and two key special team plays, the Tigers stormed back to score 31 unanswered points and never looked back. Flynn torched college football's best defense for four touchdown passes, earning him the game's Outstanding Offensive Player award. After watching LSU tie the game at 10-10, the Buckeyes seemed poised to retake the lead. When the Buckeyes line up for the potential go ahead field goal, the game's Outstanding Defensive Player, LSU lineman, Ricky Jean-Francois, stormed up the middle to block the kick and allowed the Tigers to regain the momentum. Moments later, LSU took the lead for good, claiming their third National Championship in school history. The official Fox Sports Allstate BCS National Championship DVD includes the commercial free game broadcast as well as special bonus features. It is a great addition to any Tiger Fan's collection.
