McCarron takes blame for loss
NEW ORLEANS | Big plays.
That's how it went for Alabama in Thursday night's Sugar Bowl at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. There was AJ McCarron, throwing for 300 yards before halftime, shredding the Oklahoma Sooners' defense.
Then there was McCarron, the quarterback with the most wins in University of Alabama history, throwing two unsightly interceptions and getting stripped of the ball on a fumble that gave OU its final score.
There was T.J. Yeldon grinding out yards. Then there was Yeldon getting stripped of the ball to end a promising drive, ball-security issues once again arising to overshadow his physical, downhill running style.
