About an hour before lunch on Monday, Alabama senior offensive guard Anthony Steen got a telephone call from his father. Dad had good news. Anthony had been selected as the Southeastern Conference offensive lineman of the week.
The first quarter was absolutely dominated by the Crimson Tide, but the scoreboard still read 0-0. Whether it was a fumble or a dropped pass, Alabama continuously utilized one or the other to prevent them from putting points on the board. It almost appeared that Mark Stoops had punched in the fumble cheats and the dropped pass cheats.
But, Alabama got three quick in the second quarter...
