An unstoppable force and an immovable object could collide on January 9, 2012 with Louisiana State and Oklahoma State on pace to meet at the All state BCS National Championship Game in New Orleans, Louisiana. Led by an explosive offense, Coach Mike Gundy’s Cowboys will look to punch their BCS ticket en route to their first national championship. LSU’s stingy defense will be put to the test if they face the Cowboys, a high scoring team with one of the best aerial assaults in the game today.
Blasting its way through the Big 12, Oklahoma State is an offensive juggernaut, racking up amazing totals for yards and points per game. Through mid-November, the Cowboys are 10-0, winning by a margin of over 25 points per game and sporting signature wins over three ranked teams, including then #8 Texas A&M, #22 Texas and #14 Kansas State. The Cowboys offense will surely test the any championship opponent as it averages nearly 600 yards per game in total offense and 51 point per game. Although it is known for the gaudy offensive numbers, the defense holds its own as well, ranking #62 in the country for points against.
Just as LSU has been steamrolling its opponents, Oklahoma State has been equally impressive, racking up six games with 50 or more points. The Cowboys have an easier road to the championship than the Tigers, with only #5 Oklahoma posing a serious threat to OSU’s title hopes. Should LSU and Oklahoma State meet in Louisiana on January 9th, BCS tickets will be hard to come by as fans flock to the Louisiana Superdome to see two of college football’s superpowers square off. The question that will likely be answered on that day is whether the unstoppable force of OSU’s offense can overcome the immovable object that is LSU’s defense.
