Nick Saban furious with end of first half of Iron Bowl, goes berserk on officials
When Nick Saban is upset with a call, he doesn’t hide it very well.
That’s how the end of the first half of the Iron Bowl played out as Auburn was given back a second on the clock, allowing the Tigers to snap and kick a 52-yard field goal as time expired just before the halftime break.
Alabama leads 31-27 after the made field goal.
If you missed the sequence, Auburn gained a first down but the game clock expired following the end of the play. The officials reviewed the play, gave Auburn back a second and allowed the Tigers to snap the ball for one last play.
Saban was asked to share the explanation he was given on the field.
“Well, they said there was one second on the clock,” Saban said. “But it’s a live clock. So, if they stop the clock, there’s no way they can snap it and kick it in one second. If you clock the ball you got to have three seconds. So, I don’t get it but it is what it is.”
