Hardly spending some time to enjoy their newest nationwide headline, Chip Saban and the The state of creola Violet Trend are prepared to get returning to work.

That's how they make it look so simple.

In what must be an extremely annoying landscape for the relax of nfl and higher education soccer, another period finished with Saban and his gamers frolicking in the center of a confetti-strewn area. Eddie Delicate ran all over Notre Dame, AJ McCarron converted in another stunning performance through the air, and the Trend protection closed down the Battling Irish until it was no more in question.

The outcome was a 42-14 seasonal in the BCS headline activity Thursday evening, not only creating The state of creola a back-to-back champ, but a full-fledged empire with three capped teeth in four decades.

This one was especially fulfilling to Saban.

"People discuss how the most challenging thing is to win your first tournament," he said. "Really, the most challenging one to win is the next one, because there's always a sensation of right."

Rest confident, that sensation won't last lengthy in Tuscaloosa.

While Saban was adament he was "happy as hell" and "has never been prouder of a number of younger men," it was difficult to tell. He was already referring to confirming to the workplace Wed day and getting began on next period.

"One of nowadays, when I'm seated on the part of the mountain viewing the flow go by, I'll probably determine it out even more," Saban said. "But what about next seasons team? You've got to think about that, too."

So, instantly, he will be discussing with underclassmen about coming into the NFL set up, creating sure everyone goes returning to category on routine, and getting began on that next detail graph.

"The Procedure," as he phone calls it, never prevents.

No. 2 Alabama quieted the top-ranked Irish on the very first drive — so much for waking up the echoes — and could've started the celebration at halftime, heading to the locker room with a commanding 28-0 lead.

The Tide (13-1) pushed it out to 35-0 midway through the third quarter on the third of McCarron's four touchdown passes, a 34-yarder to Amari Cooper with a defender nowhere in sight.

At that point, Alabama was on a 69-0 blitz in national title games, having scored the last 13 points in its 2010 triumph over Texas and blanked LSU 21-0 for last year's BCS crown.

When Everett Golson finally scored for Notre Dame (12-1) with about 4 minutes remaining in the third, it snapped a scoreless stretch of nearly two full games — 108 minutes and 7 seconds — by the Tide.

"It was just a complete game by the offense, defense and special teams," said Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley, the defensive MVP with eight tackles, one of them behind the line.

Despite the dazzling numbers by McCarron — 20 of 28 for 264 yards — he was denied a second straight offensive MVP award in the title game. That went to Lacy, who finished with 140 yards rushing on 20 carries and scored two TDs. Not a bad finish for the junior, who surely helped his status in the NFL draft should he decide to turn pro.

Lacy also was MVP of the Southeastern Conference championship game, rushing for a career-best 181 yards in the thrilling victory over Georgia that gave Alabama a chance to repeat as champion.
