On the first drive of the BCS Championship Game, Alabama moved the ball like nobody else this season had on Notre Dame's defense.
A 29-yard pass. A 10-yard run followed by a 15-yard penalty. Another Notre Dame penalty. A 20-yard touchdown run by Eddie Lacy.
And just like that, it was pretty obvious where this game was headed. Alabama was just too good against a Fighting Irish team that came in 12-0. Notre Dame, which hadn't given up more than 26 points in a game all year, gave up 28 in the first half. Notre Dame gave up 10 touchdowns in 12 games, but allowed six to Alabama in a 42-14 loss.
