Everything Nick Saban Said Following Alabama’s 32-31 Overtime Loss at LSU

Written by admin

The No. 6 Alabama Crimson Tide football team lost in overtime at No. 10 LSU, 32-31, Saturday night in front of a sold-out crowd at Tiger Stadium. 

The Crimson Tide scored on its first drive of the extra period to take the lead; however, the Tigers scored on their ensuing possession and won the game when it converted the two-point attempt.

Here’s everything Alabama coach Nick Saban said during his postgame press conference:  

“It’s a bit of an understatement to say how disappointed our team is. How disappointed we all are. Our guys really competed hard in the game today. It’s a tough environment, tough place to play. Gotta give LSU a lot of credit for making the plays that they made when they needed to make them. We hurt ourselves quite a bit in the game, especially early on. Had a great drive, throw a pick when we’re inside the 10-yard line. Had to settle for lots of field goals. Had way too many penalties, especially penalties contributing to their ability to drive the ball toward the end of the game. But I think everybody needs to check their whole card and what we need to do to individually improve your stock to finish the season the right way as well as have a goal of trying to win 10 games, which I think just about every team we’ve had since 2006 or 7, or whatever, has been able to do that.
