Alabama's Nick Saban: 'We're not going to beat everybody 66-3'


"They're the number one team in the country and we just went toe-to-toe with them until the final seconds of the game". "I guess my biggest disappointment is that we were ahead 24-3 in this game and we didn't finish it". "He had a little bit of separation at first when the quarterback threw the ball, and I just closed on him to make the pick". I think it's special with the kind of support and tradition that we have. The drive included a 17-yard completion and A&M was flagged for pass interference. "But, like you said, it is a good thing that we had this close of a game". Mond and the Aggies went straight back down the field to score with about 20 seconds left, but it was all for naught, as Alabama recovered the onside kick (and almost took it back for a touchdown) and proceeded to take a knee in the victory formation to take the 27-19 victory home to Tuscaloosa.

Big plays helped put Alabama over the top.

Alabama was also able to neutralize a strong A&M rushing attack, holding the Aggies to a season-low 71 yards - a mere 1.8 yards per rush. Following a Tide 40-yard field goal by Andy Pappanastos, Trayveon Williams fumbled on the A&M 43-yard line. "If you were to look at it, I was pretty much running around in circles, looking at which way he was going", Kirk said.

The Aggies weren't quite done, as they forced Alabama into a quick 3 and out and the 12th Man, Cullen Gillaspia, blasted through off the right side to block the Alabama punt for a safety and send most of the 101,000 people in attendance into a frenzy.
