The Alabama Crimson Tide needed a last-minute rally to beat back their toughest challenge of the season against the LSU Tigers in Baton Rouge. Alabama fans everywhere were on the edge of their seats, with some disheartened faithful hanging their heads over what seemed to be the end of a run for the BCS national championship.
LSU’s defense had played great while Alabama’s offense sputtered. Meanwhile, the Tigers were able to run on Alabama like no team before them this season. It seemed to everyone in the stadium and watching on TV that the Tide had finally hit low ebb.
Al McCarron’s pitch to TJ Yeldon – with assists, let’s not forget, by great pass protection against an LSU blitz, as well as blocking downfield – will now be the stuff of Crimson Tide legend, and with it the celebrations of the fans.
