Watch Nick Saban Discuss Alabama’s Win Over LSU
Alabama survived another physical game with LSU to remain undefeated and extend the series winning streak to seven games.
Following the 24-10 win, head coach Nick Saban met with the media to discuss his team's effort on Saturday night.
"Obviously, this was a tough game," Saban said.I" told the players before the game that we had not had a hard test yet. Hard defines you in terms of who you are and we did not play a great game today. We had a lot of self-inflicted wounds but you can’t be disappointed with the way our players fought, hung in there and did what they had to do to win the game. You have to give LSU’s players a lot of credit. This is always a tough and physical game, and it was certainly all of that tonight."
The game took its toll on the Crimson Tide. A number of players dealt with injuries throughout the contest, but two linebackers might be out for some time.
"It is a great win for us but it was a costly win as well. Shaun Dion (Hamilton) is probably out and so is Mack Wilson. We already have a couple linebackers who are already out, so this is going to be a challenge moving forward, but the guys who were in there today did a pretty good job."
