Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban: ‘We Practice That Play.’
Another crazy Iron Bowl at Auburn's Jordan-Hare stadium ended with Alabama converting a fourth-and goal from the 31. The win marks the first time the Tide has beaten the Tigers four times in a row since the Bryant era.
Alabama coach Nick Saban talked about that crazy play and more after the game won by Bama 27-24. Here's a look at some of Saban's post-game comments.
“Do I really need to say anything?
“I must admit you have to be a little bit lucky for it to work, but I’ll take it,"
On the name of the Winning Play to Bond
"Believe it or not, we practice that play every Friday in walk-through when we do special situations. If the play had a name, I wouldn't tell you."
NOTE: Hero/wide receiver Isaiah Bond said Alabama’s last-second play is called “gravedigger.”
“We’re going to put them in the grave after that play," Bond said. "It’s normally an end of the game, put them to sleep type of play.”
Saban: We had good fortune but it still comes down to the ability to execute.”
On Jalen Milroe
“His progress has transformed our team and our offense.”
