No. 1 LSU 9, No. 2 Alabama 6 (OT)
It may not have delivered fully on the "Game of the Century" hype, but LSU-'Bama was a dramatic, closely fought battle of wills befitting a game with stakes this high. Alabama failed to score in overtime, and LSU maintained the inside-track to the national title game on a 25-yard game-winning field goal. Neither team reached the end zone in Tuscaloosa, but Alabama came up short after missing four field goals.
