Notre Dame's defense overmatched in title game

Posted: Updated:

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) -- Manti Te'o missed one tackle in the opening minutes, then another. And so began a most frustrating night for Notre Dame's defensive leader.

He was never a factor in Monday's BCS title game.

For that matter, the same could be said about the Fighting Irish.

Te'o was dominated by Alabama's offensive front all night, setting the tone for another national title for the Crimson Tide. Alabama lost the coin flip and nothing else, rolling to a one-sided 42-14 win and its third national championship in four years.

For Notre Dame, the fantasy scenario -- unranked to start the season, undisputed to end it -- fell apart in plenty of ways. Most notably, the Irish were just overwhelmed up front by the Tide.
