College football's top-ranked LSU Tigers defeated the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide 9-6 in overtime Saturday night.
LSU won the coin toss in overtime, electing to start on defense. The Crimson Tide's offense sputtered in the extra session with two incomplete passes, a penalty for having 12 men in the huddle and a 5-yard sack.
Cade Foster, Alabama's placekicker, who had already missed three field goals earlier, missed another from 52 yards out.
After that, LSU marched down the field, nearly scoring a touchdown but running back Michael Ford stepped out of bounds.
LSU elected to attempt a field goal and Drew Alleman– who kicked two field goals earlier - hit the 25-yard game-winner.
The game, before a Bryant-Denny Stadium crowd in Tuscaloosa, mainly witnessed field goals and punts. Neither team scored a single touchdown.
The low score might be surprising, given that the teams totaled 45 points in 2010, 39 in 2009 and 48 in 2008.FULL STORY
