TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - No. 1 Alabama's road to a perfect
regular season seems paved in crimson and white.
The next two opponents are Auburn and Mississippi State, after
all, two teams mired in disappointing seasons who are a combined
3-8 in Southeastern Conference games.
Time to start gearing up for that matchup with No. 3 Florida in
the league title game, right? Not for a team that has lost two
straight to Mississippi State, Saturday's opponent, and six in a
row to chief rival Auburn.
The Tide (10-0, 6-0) secured a spot in the SEC championship game
with Saturday's overtime win at LSU, ending a five-year losing
streak to one Western Division rival.
Now, what defensive end Brandon Deaderick jokingly calls
Alabama's "revenge tour" resumes.
