Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron was so overcome by emotion after leading the Crimson Tide to a go-ahead score against LSU on Saturday night that he began crying on the sidelines.
McCarron and Bamaâ€™s offense were quiet in the second half of the game in Baton Rouge. They lost their lead and failed to score until the final minute of the game, when they went 72 yards over five plays in just 43 seconds. Just when it looked like the countryâ€™s No. 1 team was going down, McCarron led his team down the field for the win. He capped the drive with a 28-yard touchdown pass to T.J. Yeldon, coming alive when his team needed it.
The junior quarterback went 14/27 for 165 yards and the winning touchdown in Bamaâ€™s 21-17 win over LSU. He also had a rushing touchdown.
Bama fans no doubt like this image a lot more than last yearâ€™s Roll Tide crying image.

Although Crimson Tide quarterback AJ McCarron has had an excellent season, he has yet to be put in a position where his team has needed him to pull its fat from the fire. Thatâ€™s what I wrote this pastÂ Thursday in my preview of this weekendâ€™s Heisman matchups. And, as it turned out, it was McCarronâ€™s [...]

As I was returning from the Coliseum where Iâ€™d just Kenjon Barner vault himself into the Heisman conversation I peaked into a bar to watch the last drive for Alabama against LSU. AJ McCarron looked amazing and watching that game winning drive made me think the Heisman race had been shaken up. Barner tore up [...]

#1 Alabama vs #5 LSU
A rematch of last years championship game is what is expected for tonightâ€™s battle in Death Valley. The Crimson Tide come in with everything working on all cylinders. The defense is at itâ€™s usual self, giving up only 8.1 pts per game, which leads the nation. Their offense is much improved over last year as AJ McCarron is sneaking into the...
No surprises here.
By virtue of its memorable 21-17 win over LSU, undefeated Alabama remains at the top of the conferences heap. Where does the remainder of the leagues premier teams five of which are in the BCS top 10 this week fall?

BATON ROUGE, LA No one could call this one boring.
That, of course, was the knock on the last two meetings between Alabama and LSU, the first being settled solely on the feet of the field goal kickers and the second, the BCS Championship Game, being another defensive slugfest that put many on the east coast asleep before halftime.
Not this one.
Unlike the other two, this year...

I thought I saw an inspiring and heartful performance on Saturday night.Â Watching an emotional AJ McCarron bring the Alabama Crimson Tide back to beat the LSU Tigers in â€śDeath Valley.â€ťÂ And it was.Â A strong, coming of age performance by a young quarterback and his team.
Then I watched...
If I had to guess, I would imagine that for a diehard Alabama fan, watching the LSU game yesterday was about how I felt watching the 2011 Michigan/Notre Dame game (with less significant implications and more overtimes). As I was watching this SEC matchup last night, I was absolutely stunned that this was the very same LSU team that almost lost to a 2-7 Auburn team earlier this yearÂ...
