Creativity gets Alabama on the board first

AUBURN, Ala. -- Nick Saban always has a few tricks up his sleeve.

He pulled one out early with the Tide eight plays into its second drive when the ol' flea flicker caught Auburn's defense off guard and AJ McCarron hooked up with a wide open Kenny Bell for a 41-yard touchdown.

This place had been rocking before and Auburn's defense had done a good job of stopping Trent Richardson on the ground, but the Tigers got too greedy up front and zeroed in on the run. Someone on Alabama's side saw that and relayed the signal.

Great call and now the momentum is in Alabama's hands.
