Where else but the SEC?

November 7, 2012

Alabama has almost been dominated the whole game against a number five ranked LSU who possibly has played their best game all season. Yet facing a 17-14 deficit, a glimmer of hope was given to the Crimson Tide. LSU’s Drew Alleman’s missed field goal with less than 2 minutes to go in the game allowed Alabama’s Heisman Trophy hopeful A.J. McCarron to lead a drive which will forever go down in Crimson Tide lore. McCarron took about three plays before he found true freshman T.J. Yeldon on a screen pass allowing Yeldon to scamper into the end zone from 28 yards out.
