Nope. No more than it would make sense to crown Okie State/Stanford/Va Tech/et al the champ if they beat LSU in a bowl game... Okie State had their chance against an inferior opponent and blew it. Va Tech's loss was to Clemson, a very good team, but compare their 12 games to Bama's. Ditto Stanford.
I don't care for a rematch either, but I think it's the only shot at producing a close/competitive game amongst the rest of the college football field, unless LSU plays a full 48 minutes like they did the 1st half tonight.
Hell, truth be told, this is one case where I'm in favor of an LSU-Houston National Championship game. Never thought I'd say that.
