Alabama remained undefeated after defeating LSU Saturday night. It was a close fought game in Death Valley but T.J. Yeldon took a swing pass from quarterback A.J. McCarron and went 28 yards for the go ahead touchdown with 51 seconds remaining. The 21-17 win over LSU will keep Alabama atop the college football polls.
The win moves Alabama to 9-0 (6-0 in Southeastern Conference) and dropped LSU to 7-2. (3-2 in SEC)
LSU had a chance to put the game away in the closing minutes, driving into Alabama territory and forcing the Tide to use its timeouts. However, Drew Alleman missed a field goal and Alabama got the ball back. They marched down the field with McCarron completing four straight passes which culminated with the pass to Yeldon.
Yeldon had 11 carries for 78 yards and a touchdown in addition to his game winning touchdown.

I didn't think the Alabama Crimson Tide football team would lose a game this season, but they came oh so close to losing on Saturday night to the No. 5 LSU Tigers in Baton Rouge.
In fact, with just a minute and a half left in the game, it certainly appeared the No.1-ranked team in the BCS was going to lose. That was until Heisman Trophy candidate A.J. McCarron led a five-play...
As T.J. Yeldon ran into the Tiger Stadium end zone, his arms outstretched as he screamed into the Baton Rouge night, the consensus was resoundly confirmed.
Alabama is the nations No. 1 team. The only question is, who should be No. 2?

By now you've seen almost every possible view of the A.J. McCarron screen pass that T.J. Yeldon took 28 yards to the house to beat LSU Saturday night, but you haven't seen one as cool as this. This video from Buffalo Wild Wings in Tuscaloosa captures the nail biting excitement and explosive jubilation of Alabama's game winning TD in Baton Rouge. You're gonna want...
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 Bama’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...
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...
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. That’s what I wrote this past Thursday in my preview of this weekend’s Heisman matchups. And, as it turned out, it was McCarron’s [...]
With Alabama's hopes of a second straight national title hanging by a thread, A.J. McCarron shook off a dismal second half and guided the Crimson Tide right down the field.
Talk about a Saturday night stunner in Death Valley.
McCarron read an LSU blitz and flipped a swing pass to T.J. Yeldon, who did the rest on a 28-yard touchdown with 51 seconds remaining that gave the top...
As I was returning from the Coliseum where I’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 tonight’s battle in Death Valley. The Crimson Tide come in with everything working on all cylinders. The defense is at it’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?

I thought I saw an inspiring and heartful performance on Saturday night. Watching an emotional AJ McCarron bring the Alabama Crimson Tide back to beat the LSU Tigers in “Death Valley.” And it was. A strong, coming of age performance by a young quarterback and his team.
Then I watched...
