• LSU coach Ed Orgeron on the livestream from the locker room that picked up part of his postgame speech: “I wish that wouldn't happen. That shouldn't happen. And I addressed it with the player that did it, he felt bad about it. They are so used to having those phones on them all the time, I mean, we have pregame meal and I said, Okay, will you turn your phones off, just for a little bit, so we can say the prayer. So we say the prayer and, boom, they're back on their phones. So you know I think that's just the product of today.”

On this date in Crimson Tide history:

November 12, 1960: Alabama rallied from a 15-0 fourth quarter deficit to defeat Georgia Tech 16-15 at Grant Field in Atlanta. Senior quarterback Bobby Skelton engineered the comeback, with Leon Fuller and Norbie Ronsonet scoring touchdowns, but the game came down a field-goal attempt on the final play. Paul W. “Bear” Bryant went with reserve kicker Digger O'Dell, who had never attempted a field goal at Alabama, to make the game-winning kick.

Crimson Tide quote of the day:

"It's one of the things we've been wanting to do is try to develop some confidence in the passing game, and obviously he was able to do that very well today." – Nick Saban after Jalen Hurts became the first Crimson Tide player to have 300 yards passing and 100 yards rushing in the same game during Alabama’s 51-3 victory against Mississippi State on this date in 2016.
