T.J. Yeldon scored on a 28-yard screen pass with 51 seconds remaining. Alabama edged LSU 21-17 in “Death Stadium” to stay undefeated. It was a win that left A.J. McCarron in tears. SEC partizans can breathe a sigh of relief. They should have a representative in the BCS Title Game.
Though it proved to be in a losing effort, it’s worth noting that Zach Mettenberger showed up to play, finally. He completed 69 percent of his passes for 298 yards and a touchdown against what was, perhaps, the nation’s best passing defense.
