Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin had a feeling his play call on fourth down would work.

Nick Saban wanted to call timeout to think it over, but Kiffin refused.

Facing a 4th-and-2 near midfield late in the third quarter on Saturday at Alabama, Kiffin opted for a handoff to Derrick Henry that went for six yards after pushing Saban out of the way who was attempting to stop play.

It was an easy shove and Kiffin’s called worked.
