COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Alabama has been the best team in the country for the better part of the last two years.
But the Crimson Tide haven't been in this situation -- down two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, on the road and the opposing fans smelling blood.
The most surprising part of it all?
When South Carolina has needed to come up with a drive, that's exactly what the Gamecocks have done.
Alabama's defense has been exposed. That's putting it mildly.
We'll see if the Tide have enough left to pull it out of the fire.
