HANGING ON…#1 Alabama won the Nick Saban Bowl in overtime down in hostile Baton Rouge with tough defense and turnovers. They appeared to have iced the game with a late touchdown that was called back by a questionable holding penalty.

Was it a hold? It could have been in that “there is holding on every play” kind of way… the Umpire was running away from the play and looking over his shoulder when he threw the flag.

When Bama won in overtime on a QB sneak that was so close it was ultimately reviewed, said Umpire was looking at the Side Judge (who’s responsibility it is to signal a TD) and shaking his head “yes” with great conviction a micro-second after the Tides’ QB John Parker Wilson broke the plane.
