QUOTE FROM HEAD COACH NICK SABAN
“We need to play better. They’re going no huddle on us and we’re not getting the personnel in the game that we like to have in the game at times. We have to settle down and play better. Offensively, when we started huddling and running the ball we did a better job. They held the snap there at the end. We should have just called a time out, so we lost some time there, it was my fault.”
