QUOTE FROM HEAD COACH NICK SABAN
“I think we've played well. The upbeat tempo has probably helped us a little against them. We did a good job of checking them. The quarterback did a good job. We are still having trouble getting off of the field on third down. We need to get that straightened out. I'm pleased. Anytime you have this score at halftime in this game, you have to be pleased."
