BCS national championship game
LSU with a 12-2 record
First, there was no such thing as a "National Championship Game" in 1958.Second, Iowa won the Rose Bowl game, against California, 38-12. There was no tie.Third, noone with a brain would say that LSU won the 1958 national championship. LSU's racist schedulers prevented them from playing teams with black athletes. By every measure their SOS was pathetic compared to Iowas, because they played no black athletes and a 10 second look at their season schedule shows that Iowa played tougher opponents and had more impressive wins.How much credit would a team that refused to play black athletes get today for going undefeated? None-that is why that racist LSU team is viewed with such disdain to this very day.LSU beat their Sugar bowl opponent in a home game(LA) a measly 7-0.Iowa beat their integrated bowl opponent in a road game(in CA, playing Cal) 38-12 and set or tied 7 Rose Bowl records.If Iowa and LSU had played (that is if LSU weren't racist POS) Iowa would have crushed LSU that year. That is why no one outside of LSU fans believe LSU has any legitimate claim to a racist undefeated weak schedule.The polls of the day were every bit as racist and biased as LSU schedulers were and voted LSU #1 to spite Iowa for having black athletes.Iowa was awarded the 1958 national championship trophy by the FWAA, which was the most widely sports writers association of that day.The 1958 National Title Trophy resides in Iowa City, IA at the Iowa Hall of Fame Museum.
