TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - 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
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.
