Alabama-LSU: Who Will Win?

The day has arrived for the BCS title game -- and the controversial rematch. Also, discussions about the future of the BCS are expected.

The day many SEC football fans have been waiting for has arrived.

Alabama and LSU will tangle -- again -- Monday night in the Superdome in New Orleans to determine the Bowl Championship Series champion.

It's controversial for several reasons. One, LSU already has beaten Alabama once this season, during the regular season in Tuscaloosa, Ala. Thus, the Crimson Tide could win the national title game despite not winning their own conference. And Oklahoma State got nosed out of the title game despite winning the Big 12.

Also, the BCS itself is the subject of much criticism. Its matchups are determined by both computer rankings and human voters. Thus, the inference of political influence is constant. It has the word "championship" in its title, but the BCS is not a true playoff system. Only two teams have a chance at the title.

Apparently, the BCS itself knows it needs some work. An article in the Miami Herald reports that there will be "meaningful discussion about possible changes" to the BCS.

But for one game, many football fans will be happy. So we want to know: Who will win Monday, Alabama or LSU?

Take our poll, and sound off in the comments.
