                   === Lacy captures BCS Championship MVP ===
 
 By David Jordan, Contributing College Football Editor
 
 Miami,  FL (Sports  Network)  -  Alabama running  back  Eddie  Lacy capped  an
 impressive  junior season by earning the BCS Championship MVP with a 157-yard,
 two-touchdown performance in a 42-14 rout of Notre Dame.
 
 Lacy  finished  the game  with 140 yards  and a touchdown  on 20 carries while
 adding  17 yards and  a score on a pair of receptions against a Fighting Irish
 defense  that  entered the  contest allowing  an average  of just 92.4 rushing
 yards and 10.3 points per game.
 
 The  6-foot-1,  220-pound back opened  the scoring and  sparked a streak of 21
 unanswered  points by  the Crimson Tide with a pummeling 20-yard touchdown run
 less than three minutes into the first quarter.
 
 His  11-yard touchdown catch, in which he grabbed a short pass and spun around
 a  pair of defenders  before leaping across the goal line, staked Alabama to a
 28-0 halftime lead and the Crimson Tide never looked back.
 
 He led Alabama's offensive outburst with 96 yards on 12 first-half carries.
 
 Lacy  finished  his junior campaign with  1,322 yards and 17 touchdowns on the
 ground to go along with 189 receiving yards and two scores.
