The Alabama Crimson Tide won their best game of the season, and the best game of the season they will play in until the BCS championship game, Saturday night in Death Valley. It wasn’t pretty for the Tide though. They started slowly in the first half but gained a 14 – 3 lead over the Tigers that they took into half-time. It was the Tigers that came out after half and proved to have made the correct adjustments. The Tigers seemed to be able to overcome the coaching mistakes that Les Miles was throwing at them, Miles decisions could make a post of their own they were so bad, but I’ll leave LSU fans alone, and Zach Mettenberger that everyone was expecting this season showed up making smart throws while the LSU ground game gave him the space to do so. The Tide were down by 3 with about a minute left in the 4th, and while quarterback AJ McCarron hadn’t been able to get anything going in the second half, he drove the Tide down the field and tossed a nice screen pass to running back TJ Yeldon who took it in for a touchdown to put the Tide up 21 – 17. Alabama is still the only undefeated SEC team, and after escaping Baton Rouge with a W, the Tide will face Texas A&M and Johnny Football. TJ Yeldon game winning touchdown.

Les Miles Calls Ill-Advised LSU Failed Fake Field Goal Which Alabama Stops For Two-Yard Loss (Video)

Alabama vs. LSU Review: Mad Hatter Plays His Hand Too Early

LSU and their “Mad Hatter” Head Coach Les Miles did not disappoint the College Football world this weekend. Not because they couldn’t knock off Alabama, but because they pulled out every trick in the book and pushed the Tide to the brink, leaving no doubt that LSU doesn’t belong in the National Title picture this year, and Alabama does (for now).

Discover Fan Loyalty Poll: Oregon Ducks Get Some Love From BCS As Notre Dame Fighting Irish Slide In Polls

In the Discover Fan Loyalty Poll, the voters have had mixed feelings about the Oregon Ducks. They know that they are a good team, but are not ready to anoint them as a top team. That honor continues to belong to the Alabama Crimson Tide, especially after they pulled out a last minute win against the LSU Tigers in a game where Les Miles practically handed the No. 1 team in the nation...

Discover Fan Loyalty Poll: Fans Top Teams Should Correlate More With Latest BCS Projections

The Alabama Crimson Tide have held onto the top spot on the Discover Fan Loyalty Poll since the beginning of the 2012 college football season.

Bobby Hebert got kicked out of LSU's press box this weekend for cheering

Alabama defeated LSU in the third or fourth Game of the Century between the two schools with a late touchdown drive to win 21-17 in Baton Rouge.  But AJ McCarron's touchdown drive, pictures of him crying, the failure of Les Miles' magic tricks, or even Lolo Jones' College GameDay appearance weren't the most interesting story to emerge from the game. That title...

Sooners' bowl scenarios intriguing

The Sooners’ 35-20 win over Iowa State raised their record to 6-2 and qualified them for bowl eligibility. If OU keeps winning, a BCS berth is a possibility. The Sooners have Baylor, West Virginia, Oklahoma State, and TCU remaining. Win out and it could be interesting. Lose a game or two and it’s off to a bowl with less prestige.
