TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- One of the biggest questions entering Saturday night's college football clash at Bryant-Denny was how Alabama and LSU would handle a 60-minute game after blowing out eight opponents each by double digits.

As it turned out, 60 minutes wasn't enough.

Drew Alleman's 25-yard field goal in overtime catapulted the No. 1 Tigers to a riveting 9-6 win over No. 2 Alabama in a game that evoked the old-school days of big hits and field position. With the victory, the Tigers improved to 9-0 overall and have their first 6-0 start in SEC play since 1961.
