• LSU becomes the fifth team in BCS history to go wire-to-wire at No. 1 in the 14-year history of the BCS. The last
time this feat was accomplished was in 2006 by Ohio State.
• LSU becomes the first team in the history of the BCS to sit atop the final Standings with a perfect 1.000 score.
• LSU and Alabama become the first schools from the same conference to meet in the BCS Championship. The SEC
foes are the first title-game participants to stage a rematch of a regular season match-up. Additionally, they join USC
and Texas (2005) as the only Nos. 1-2 in the initial Standings to meet for the title.
• LSU ties Florida State and Ohio State for the second-most title game appearances with three (3). Oklahoma has the
most with four (4).
• If the Tigers defeat Alabama in the Allstate BCS National Championship, they will become the first school in history
to win three BCS crowns.
• The .0086 difference between Alabama and Oklahoma State is the smallest margin of difference between the No. 2
and No. 3 spots in the final Standings since 2004 (under the new scoring system).
• The following schools boast the highest-ever rank in the BCS Final Standings: No. 3 Oklahoma State; No. 4 Stanford
(tie), No. 6 Arkansas; No. 9 South Carolina; No. 12 Baylor; No. 19 Houston; and No. 21 Southern Miss.
