Alabama-SEC conspiracy theorists will have a field day with this stat from Week 11
The Alabama Crimson Tide improved to 10-0 on the season with a dominant 24-0 win over Mississippi State on Saturday night.
However, the game provided plenty of fuel for those who think the SEC is biased toward the Tide, starting with a questionable non-review of what could have been a fumble in the first quarter. Then, there was a block-in-the-back penalty called on a Mississippi State receiver who barely touched an Alabama defender.
What may really drive conspiracy theorists wild, though, is the fact that no flags were thrown on the Tide all game long. In fact, they were the only Power 5 team not to be penalized on Saturday:
Alabama was the only power 5 team to play week 11 and draw zero penalties.

Obviously, Alabama is an elite, well-coached team, but that stat will certainly raise some eyebrows across the southeast.
For now, though, the Tide have their second-straight shutout victory and continue to roll along as the No. 1 team in the nation.
