TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Nick Saban puts Alabama's past two games in the same category. He doesn't mean it as a compliment.
The fourth-ranked Crimson Tide lost for the first time against No. 9 Texas A&M a week after barely beating No. 8 LSU.
Saban says Alabama didn't play well as a team in either game. Saban called it "a Bluegrass Miracle phenomenon." That reference is to a win over Kentucky on a Hail Mary in 2002 when he was at LSU. The Tigers followed that with a 31-0 loss to Alabama.
Saban says a team gets beat "because nobody responded to playing bad because you won. You won the Bluegrass Miracle."
Alabama plays Western Carolina Saturday and can earn a spot in the Southeastern Conference championship game with a win over Auburn.
