      NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Jeremy Shelley redeemed Alabama's kickers.
      Shelley overcame a few errant kicks to equal a bowl record with
five field goals in the Crimson Tide's 21-0 win over LSU in Monday
night's BCS championship game.
      It meant Alabama (12-1) survived this time though its offense,
again, kept getting turned back. Cade Foster missed three field
goals in the first game against LSU on Nov. 5 and Shelley had one
blocked in the 9-6 defeat.
      The Tide was left to wonder if those errant kicks would keep the
team from the title game.
      Shelley topped his previous season-high of 37 yards twice in the
finale.
      A blocked and missed field goal and a botched extra point turned
into mere footnotes for Shelley this time, instead of an agonizing
legacy.
