LSU quarterback Jarrett Lee has committed to play in the Casino Del Sol All-Star Game in Tucson. The question is, will he arrive as a national champion?

That is to be determined tonight when the top-ranked and undefeated Tigers take on No. 2 Alabama in the BCS national championship game.

Lee started the first nine games of the season for LSU before throwing two interceptions against Alabama, when he was pulled for erstwhile starter Jordan Jefferson.

Until then, Lee had performed efficiently, with 13 touchdown passes and one interception, steadying the offense after Jefferson began the season on suspension.

Lee is expected to arrive Tuesday; all-star game practices start Wednesday. The game will be held next Monday night at Kino Stadium.

Five former Arizona Wildcats will play in the game, including defensive back Robert Golden.

Colorado running back Rodney Stewart — whom UA fans will remember for his 181-yard, three-touchdown effort vs. the Wildcats — also has committed to the game.

Among others coming: Tulsa quarterback G.J. Kinne, Washington State quarterback Marshall Lobbestael, Michigan running back Michael Shaw, Penn State running back Stephfon Green, Boise State linebacker Aaron Tevis (a CDO grad) and West Virginia’s All-Big East offensive lineman Don Barclay.
