You wouldn’t think this LSU-Alabama matchup in the BCS Championship Game was a rematch that so many folks were against. Floods of Crimson Tide and Tigers fans have already descended upon New Orleans in anticipation of Monday’s game at 7:30 p.m. CST. On Friday, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu introduced the art of cutting and eating a king cake to LSU and Alabama officials during a Kings Day feast to kick off the 2012 Mardi Gras season. There are so many parties and receptions going on, including a “Prequel,” another one titled “Red Clay,” a day party by the “Soul Tigers” and a “Welcome to New Orleans” party. Actually, this sounds like a party lineup for the Super Bowl and NBA All-Star Weekend.
Arguably, this encounter between LSU (13-0, 8-0 SEC), a team making its third BCS title appearance and Alabama (11-1, 7-1), a team making its second, is a game that is exceeding the hype that never was. So what was that about not wanting to see another Les Miles-Nick Saban faceoff?

Tyrann Mathieu is no stranger to proving himself. Long before he became the breakout star of the season for top-ranked LSU, Dennis Dodd says the Honey Badger had to prove himself in high school to get out of Orleans Parrish.
The Honey Badger doesn’t give a bleep. We already knew that. Whatever the Honey Badger needs to do to get what he wants, he’s more than willing to do it.

With such an enormous amount of time to prepare for the BCS National...
The Honey Badger may not care, but the guy who narrates the hilarious video about the world's fiercest animal does have a favorite in the BCS championship game Monday night.

NEW ORLEANS — Heisman Trophy finalist Tyrann Mathieu had a new number and a new nickname yesterday in practice — but it wasn’t out of fear Alabama was spying on LSU’s workout.

All season entrepreneurs have capitalized on the LSU's "Honey Badger" craze — the nickname given to star cornerback and punt returner Tyrann Mathieu - and now restaurants and bars in New Orleans are doing the same in advance of Monday's BCS National Championship.

LSU boasts two of the nation's best in Morris Claiborne and Tyrann Mathieu. The Tigers' unrivaled richness at corner is a big reason why they're in New Orleans, says Stewart Mandel.
Top-ranked LSU is 13-0 and the SEC champion because Les Miles and his staff have recruited some of the best players in the nation.
And they do this every year.
Heck, LSU already has a verbal commitment from the top quarterback prospect in Gunner Keil.
So much like yesterday's top five players from Alabama, it's equally as tough to pare down LSU to its best five.
