09:14 AM ET 11.06 | Perhaps the central figure in second-ranked Alabama's 9-6 overtime loss to top-ranked LSU Saturday night was wide receiver Marquis Maze. Alabama's defense forced a three-and-out, and as Maze lined up for a punt return, it looked as if the Tide was going to get the ball with good field position. Punter Brad Wing launched a line-drive punt that Maze let go over his head. The ball rolled dead at Alabama's 18-yard line for a 73-yard punt. After the game, Maze claimed the ball hit one of the wires suspended over the field that guides a moving CBS camera. "It kinda messed me up, but it was better for us to get it back there than to try to field it and muff it," Maze said. In such a case, the ball might have been declared dead. An operator of the camera told the Daily Bama Blog that the ball didn't touch the wire.

I think Barkley or Luck might have scored a touchdown in the game. Looks like SOS caught up to both the No. 1 and (former) No. 2 teams in the nation. Neither has faced any defense this good and, in my opinion, both teams were exposed as being possibly vulnerable.

Les Miles playing conservative football...what's this world coming to?

The whole damn game was conservative football IMHO. Not just Les. I thought Saban was more conservative.

I agree. I know both teams have great defenses. But there is no reason for schools with as much talent as these two to have such offenses.

Nice to stay undefeated. I'm still in Austin and haven't heard yet if we go DI or DII.

I expected that out of Saban but Les? Frankly, it's a down year across the board in CFB. I don't see any of the undefeated teams beating LUS. The B1G is bleh, the ACC is meh, the Big12 is ehh and the Twelve Pac is feh.

Pretty accurate assessment IMHO Piratey. I would agree.

The most intriguing matchup would be an accurate qb like Luck or Weeden

Bracket shows they meet in the 2nd round. Trinity plays Duncanville and Allen plays Keller Central in the first round.
