Nick Saban Said He Had To Convince Team To “Try To Play In A Consolation Game” During Last Year’s Sugar Bowl

Alabama entered last year’s Sugar Bowl as the No. 3 team in America and a 17 point favorite over No. 10 Oklahoma. Of course, the Sooners ended up beating the Crimson Tide, 45-31. It’s weird to see a Nick Saban coached team ever lose by two touchdowns to anyone, so when he was asked about the game today by ESPN, Saban presented this theory: it was really hard to convince his team...
