Alabama rebounds from their first loss of the season to put themselves right back in the mix for the national championship by shutting out Western Carolina 49-0 at home in Bryant-Denny Stadium. These are some of the impact plays from the game.
Alabama looked to have recovered from their lackluster performances over the previous two weeks with a big win at home against Western Carolina. Although the extent of their improvement is difficult to judge considering the Crimson Tide was playing against a one win FBS opponent. With the Iron Bowl looming and the opportunity to clench a spot in the SEC Championship with a win over their bitter rival, Auburn. No doubt the Alabama Crimson Tide won’t dwell on this victory in the least with so much to look forward to next week and beyond.
The Crimson Tide came into the game against Western Carolina (an FBS opponent) looking to correct the mistakes from the last two weeks and set the tone for the remainder of the season. They did just that by shutting out the Catamounts, 49-0. Even after suffering their first loss of the season in the previous game, Alabama still remains in control of their future in the Western Division of the SEC. With that in mind the Tide look to the Iron Bowl next week at home to clench a spot in the SEC Championship.
The Alabama Crimson Tide bounced back after their first loss of the season against Texas A&M a week prior by throttling Western Carolina at home in Bryant-Denny Stadium. The Catamounts came into the contest with only one win for the entire 2012 season. Even following the big loss there was really no threat of another potential upset in this game for the Tide. Still Alabama had a lot to play for since they really needed to prove that the less than impressive performances against LSU and Texas A&M would not continue further into the remainder of the season. They did that by shutting out Western Carolina 49-0.
The Alabama Crimson Tide took on their second SEC Western Division opponent for the 2012 season at Bryant-Denny Stadium by welcoming Ole Miss to the field of play. Alabama stumbled and staggered throughout the night showing moments of glimmering performance and with less than stellar action in between. A lack of consistency seemed to be the theme for the night for Alabama. Ole Miss hung in the game for much of the first half. Alabama put some distance in between them and the Rebels in the second half, ending the game with a modest but satisfactory 33-14 victory.

TUSCALOOSA, Alabama – Fans were kicking Alabama’s kickers when they were down after they made only two of six field-goal attempts Saturday in a 9-6 overtime loss to LSU. When social media becomes unsocial, messages smack rather than soothe. And as some barbs weren’t falling short or drifting wide right, Crimson Tide punter Cody Mandell kicked back. “If you are a fan bashing Cade or Shelley shame on you,” he tweeted on Sunday. “Win as a team, (lose) as a team.”
The so-called Game of the Century (hey, it’s a young century) was actually a little bit of a yawner, even by supreme SEC over-defensively-schemed standards. Not much of the end zone did we see, unless it was an errant Tide kick landing short or astray like a winged AFLAC duck falling in the marsh. This game was more or less a Mexican standoff involving field goals, crazy-looking punts and uncharacteristic turnovers. Neither coach attempted a grasp for the other’s jugular. It was like a chess match played entirely with pawns. If it were a poker match, Alabama had one of a kind–Trent Richardson. LSU had two of a kind – ineffectual quarterbacks. The only saving grace for either was the full house – Bryant-Denny Stadium – showcasing the best of the SEC to a national audience.
TUSCALOOSA – In a 9-6 overtime game, four failed field goal attempts were an easy target as fans and pundits alike tried to assign cause for the University of Alabama’s loss to LSU Saturday. Kicker Cade Foster missed attempts from 44 and 50 yards in the first quarter, and after converting a 46-yarder in the third quarter, missed from 52 in overtime. Jeremy Shelley, who typically handles shorter field goals while Foster attempts longer tries, converted from 34 yards in the second quarter. Later in the game, Shelley attempted what would have been the longest field goal of his career – 49 yards – only to have it blocked.
