LSU beats Alabama in overtime

LSU beats Alabama in overtime

Louisiana State gained the inside track to college football's title game by beating Alabama 9-6 in overtime in Saturday's clash of the two top-ranked teams.
Drew Alleman's 25-yard field goal in overtime decided a fierce defensive struggle in which neither team reached the end zone.
The Crimson Tide were left to rue four missed field goals, including Cade Foster's 52-yard attempt in the extra period.
LSU appeared to win the game on Michael Ford's run, but he stepped out of bounds at the 7-yard line. After two plays gained nothing, LSU sent on Alleman to attempt his third field goal of the game on third down. Alabama tried to increase the pressure by calling timeout, but he calmly knocked it through to set off a wild celebration by the visiting team.

Filling in for injured starter Dan Persa in the second half, Colter scored from the 1 with 1:34 left to finish a 13-play, 66-yard drive that chewed more than 7 minutes off the clock after the Cornhuskers had pulled to 21-18.

In Las Vegas, Kellen Moore threw five touchdown passes to become college football's most successful quarterback, and Boise State brushed off a first-half scare from UNLV.

The victory gave Moore 46 career wins, one more than former Texas star Colt McCoy.
No. 6 Oregon 34, Washington 17
In Seattle, Oregon forced three key turnovers and extended the longest win streak in the rivalry with their neighboring foes.
