Why? Because they lost to a good Auburn team on the road with a fluke missed field goal for a touchdown with no time remaining? Yes, clearly they have been dethroned as the best program in the country. Also, I'm not talking particularly about this year's team. Alabama is the number one PROGRAM in the country by a long shot. I only responded the way I did because you seem to think that just because they lost a game with a fluky play that they are not the best anymore. Well, they are.

If they suck vs. the spread...it's no wonder that we're awful against it. We're not CLOSE to Alabama.

Baylor, Texas A&M and Oregon would hang 80 on us.

Interestingly, Alabama has given up slightly more than half of its average yards allowed per game in just this quarter. Oklahoma, compared to other teams, is sort of having their way with the defense here at about seven yards per snap on average. That's subpar defense by normal Alabama standards.

But Wallace is why I hate Bama as a State and college. As the former governed said

"segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever"

Great throw by Knight and a gorgeous over-the-shoulder catch by Saunders.  Very, very tough catch when it drops in right over your blind spot like that.

Don't recall the last time I saw Alabama's D get undressed like this by anyone not named Johnny Manziel.
