After watching LSU beat Alabama 9-6 in overtime earlier this season, junior New Orleans Carver wide receiver Raheem Falkins, who currently favors the Tigers and Tide, is looking for just one thing when the two meet Monday in the Allstate BCS National Championship Game (ESPN, 8:30 p.m. ET).

"I just hope someone scores a touchdown," Falkins said.

It's no secret that LSU and Alabama are two of the top teams when it comes to recruiting, and their commits and targets will be watching the game with a little more than a rooting interest.
