BATON ROUGE, La. -- With a heavy police escort, Nick Saban returned to Tiger Stadium wearing crimson. He barely got out of town with Alabama still unbeaten and No. 1.
After the Crimson Tide missed a chip-shot field goal on the
final play of regulation, John Parker Wilson scored on a 1-yard
sneak in overtime to give Alabama a 27-21 victory over No. 15 LSU
on Saturday, clinching a spot in the Southeastern Conference
The Tide (10-0, 6-0 SEC) has its eyes on a bigger prize, of
course, and stayed on course for its first national title since
LSU, the defending national champion once coached by Saban, was
eliminated from the conference race and, in all likelihood, any
consideration for a spot in the BCS.
