Alabama Crimson Tide football coach had this to say about the game: “I actually think that was a heck of a football game. I’m really proud of the way our players competed in the game. I thought we played hard and physical and we played with a lot of toughness. It was a very physical game on both sides. We had a lot of opportunities that we didn’t take advantage of. The missed field goals, or the opportunities that created the missed field goals, an interception penalty that takes us out of field position, a possible touchdown that turns out to be an interception and not being able to take advantage of the field position after that to score points. Those are two great teams. LSU has a very good team, they’re number one in the country for a reason. They played a heck of a game and our guys played a heck of a game. We had a lot of opportunities. Our team is going to get better from this.”
LSU Coach Les Miles had this to say about the game: “Two very physical football teams played tonight. It definitely didn’t go by script. The most interesting thing is that you just have to keep fighting and finding a way to win. There are the two interceptions by [Eric] Reid and [Morris] Claiborne. There’s the punt by [Brad] Wing. There’s some six yard runs. Just a lot of great tackles made the difference. In overtime, Drew Alleman comes in and kicks it for the win. Congratulations to Alabama though for having a great football team. This was a great night. Tough football. Not necessarily a pretty game but it had a nice ending.”
