AP: Tide moves into title game with 24-15 win over LSU
No. 3 Alabama picked up another dramatic win and a second straight trip to the SEC championship game.
Julio Jones caught a 73-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter, the Crimson Tide converted the 2-point attempt, and Leigh Tiffin booted a 40-yard field goal with 3:04 left to seal a 24-15 victory over No. 9 LSU on Saturday.
The Tide (9-0, 6-0 Southeastern Conference) clinched a rematch with No. 1 Florida in the league championship game in a physical game that left the Tigers (7-2, 4-2) without quarterback Jordan Jefferson and running back Charles Scott for most of the second half.
The win touched off another big celebration for Alabama, which survived a 12-10 win over Tennessee two weeks ago with Terrence Cody’s two blocked field goal attempts in the fourth quarter.
LSU would have taken control of the West with a victory.
