The “games” started almost immediately, when just a few hours after the official announcement was made, the LSU fan shop website was hacked. The result of the hack, replaced all of the LSU merchandise with Alabama options.
The site has since been reclaimed, but considering the intensity of the rivalry between the two schools, this may just be the tip of the iceberg.
The Crimson Tide will play the top-ranked Tigers in the Allstate BCS National Championship Game Jan. 9th at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
LSU defeated Alabama in their last meeting this year, 9-6 in overtime.
