The BCS National Championship Game or BCS title game is the final game of the annual Bowl Championship Series intended by Series organizers to determine the NCAA Division I-A national football championship.
The game was first played at the conclusion of the 1998 College Football season after the Big Ten and Pac 10 conferences and the Rose Bowl Game joined the members of the former "Bowl Alliance" to form the Bowl Championship Series.
Championship for the year 2011 was held at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in LA. By that time the Bowl was sponsored by Allstate. On ESPN's coverage we were able to watch the Alabam Crimson Tide defeat LSU Tigers 21 to nothing, becoming the first shutout in BCS Championship history.
