BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Blake Sims drove Alabama 55 yards in the final 50 seconds of regulation for a tying field goal, and threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to DeAndrew White in overtime to lift No. 4 Alabama to a 20-13 victory over No. 14 LSU on Saturday night.
With the victory and Auburn’s upset loss to Texas A&M earlier in the day, Alabama (8-1, 5-1Southeastern Conference) is alone in second place in the SEC West Division with a game against first-place Mississippi State still on its schedule.
Amari Cooper had eight catches for 83 yards and a 23-yard touchdown while setting Alabama career and single-season records for yards receiving, as well as the school’s single-season mark for catches with 79.
T.J. Yeldon’s fumble deep in Alabama territory set up Colby Delahoussaye’s 39-yard field goal that gave LSU (7-3, 3-3) a 13-10 lead with 50 seconds left.
