T.J. Yeldon took a swing pass from AJ McCarron and went 28 yards for a touchdown with 51 seconds remaining, giving top-ranked Alabama a stunning 21-17 victory over No. 5 LSU on a raucous Saturday night in Death Valley.
AJ McCarron blamed himself for Alabama's 9-6 overtime loss to LSU last season. He was a different QB when the Tide beat LSU for the BCS title, and he's continued to grow in confidence as No. 1 Alabama faces No. 5 LSU on Saturday.
