LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - This year's national champion is unanimous, according to the final Associated Press top 25 poll of the season.

After beating Texas in the BCS national title game, the Alabama Crimson Tide finished in first place.  The Tide received all sixty first place votes.

Texas, Florida, Boise State, and Ohio State rounded out the top five in that order.  Despite finishing the season at an undefeated 14-0, Boise State did not receive any first place votes.

As for the LSU Tigers, they cracked the final top 25.  Les Miles' squad lost in the Capital One Bowl to Penn State.  That dropped them to #17 in the final poll.

The SEC has won the last four national championships: Florida, LSU, Florida again, and now Alabama in that order.
