Senator Shelby, who is a Tuscaloosa resident and earned an undergraduate and law degree from the University of Alabama, issued the following statement
“I congratulate the University of Alabama Crimson Tide for winning the 2012 BCS National Championship Game. The University, the Crimson Tide faithful, and the entire State of Alabama can be proud of this team not only for winning, but for representing us on the national stage with integrity and class.
Alabama was led by a suffocating defense as evidenced by the shutout win. However, under Coach Saban’s leadership, the Tide played extremely well in all phases of the game, demonstrating that this was truly a team victory. I am proud to represent a state whose esteemed universities have brought home the national title for three years in a row and counting.
I would also like to offer my congratulations to LSU on a great team and an outstanding season.”
