It's going to be a waiting game now for Alabama.

Following the loss to Auburn and an 11-1 regular season, the Crimson Tide won't be able to control its own destiny for the playoff. Alabama will be at home when Auburn and Georgia meet for the SEC Championship Game on Saturday and the team's fate will likely rest on other teams.

Following the 26-14 loss in the Iron Bowl, head coach Nick Saban met the media to explain what he thought led to the team's first regular season loss since early 2015. Saban also addressed his team's future and why he feels they've earned a chance to compete in the College Football Playoff.
