Who knew at the beginning of this game that Alabama would lose? According to the odds before the game, not many.

SB Nation says that Bama was favored by 12 points to win that game. The margin wasn't even close. With all this being true, how did Alabama lose this game?

Were tide players still winded after a crunch time drive directed by Tide QB AJ McCarron to escape Death Valley with a win?

Was it solely the running of Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel?

 

After being down twenty points in the first half, a touchdown run by T.J. Yeldon gave the Crimson Tide a glimmer of light after a dark first quarter. It looked like, the Tide was waking up and would come back to win the game.

Fast-foward to the second half and the game looked a lot more interesting. The Tide battled back to make it a 20-17 game. That battle mentality continued not the 4th quarter when the Tide had the ball with a little over 4 minutes to go an only one score behind.

The game came down to a 4th and goal play with 1:42 left on the clock.

An A.J McCarron interception at the goal line sealed the deal for one of the biggest upsets I can remember at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
