Miles, Saban voice support for SEC officials

By  | 

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - LSU coach Les Miles says he is satisfied
with the response he received from the SEC about a questionable
call by officials during the Tigers' game against Alabama.

Miles said Monday he has spoken with Southeastern Conference
commissioner Mike Slive and coordinator of officials Rogers Redding
regarding a near-interception by Patrick Peterson late in the
ninth-ranked Tigers' 24-15 loss Saturday.

Miles says he was fine with what he was told, and if he felt
differently, he "would say so."

SEC spokesman Charles Bloom said the league would not comment on
the call.

Alabama made it a two-score game with a field goal on the drive
that would have ended if Peterson's catch had been ruled inbounds.
