Baton Rouge, LA - Despite a late fourth-quarter turnover, Alabama is still alive in the national championship race. Blake Sims threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to DeAndrew White in overtime to boost the fourth-ranked Crimson Tide to a 20-13 win over No. 14 LSU Saturday night. T.J. Yeldon fumbled at the Alabama 6 with 1:13 left, and Colby Delahoussaye kicked a 39-yard field goal to give LSU the lead with 50 seconds left. Sims, though, led Alabama down the field with some clutch plays and Adam Griffiths 27-yard field goal with three seconds left forced OT. The Crimson Tide got the ball first in OT, and White caught Sims looping pass on the right side of the end zone. Anthony Jennings then threw four straight incompletions to end the game. The final attempt to the end zone was knocked away to finish the fourth overtime game since 2005 between the foes. The victory for Alabama (8-1, 5-1 SEC) came on a day Auburn lost to Texas A&M. Auburn entered the week No. 3 in the College Football Playoff Selection Committee Rankings, while Alabama was fifth. Alabama welcomes No. 1 Mississippi State to Bryant-Denny Stadium next Saturday. Mississippi State (5-0 SEC) is barely ahead of Alabama in the Western Division. Sims completed 20-of-45 passes for 209 yards with a pair of TDs, and Amari Cooper had eight receptions for 83 yards and a score. Anthony Jennings connected on 8-of-26 throws for 76 yards with a TD and an interception for LSU (7-3, 3-3), which won its previous three contests. After being pinned at their 1 following a punt late in the fourth quarter, the Crimson Tide turned the ball over on the second offensive play. Lamar Louis grabbed the ankle of Yeldon. As the Alabama running back was being pulled down and prior to the left knee hitting the ground, the ball popped out of Yeldons left hand and Kendell Beckwith recovered for LSU at the 6-yard line. An unsportsmanlike penalty pushed the ball back 15 yards, and Alabama used its three timeouts following three straight runs, which netted minus-one yard prior to Delahoussayes field goal. The ensuing kickoff hooked left and went out of bounds, giving Alabama the ball at its 35. Sims navigated the Crimson Tide into field goal range by converting a couple of 3rd-and-4 situations, once with his feet on a 5-yard scramble and another with a 22-yard connection to a diving Christion Jones. That got the ball to the 26, and on the next play White made a 16-yard reception on the right side prior to Griffith tying the game. Sims hit Brandon Greene for a 24-yard gain on the first play of OT, and after an unsportsmanlike penalty on Alabama pushed the ball back, the Tide were forced to rush for a first down, before Whites grab gave the visitors the lead. Jennings tried to find Malachi Dupre in the end zone on fourth down, but the ball was knocked away in double coverage. The Tigers struck first thanks to an amazing catch in the end zone by Dupre. The 14-yard pass play to the left side of the end zone was first ruled incomplete, but upon review it was determined Dupre got his right foot down as he cradled the ball with his left hand against his chest before going out of bounds. Alabama embarked on a 17-play, 70-yard drive that ended on a missed field goal try. Griffiths 27-yard boot clanked off the left upright. The Crimson Tide then forced a three-and-out, and they tied the game on Coopers 23-yard reception over the middle. Sims converted a 4th-and-4 with a 9-yard connection to Cooper on the right side, and two plays later Cooper caught a ball over the middle, spun off a would-be tackler and darted to the end zone. With the TD catch, Cooper became the all-time leader in receiving yards for the Crimson Tide, passing the mark of 2,923 set by DJ Hall (2004-07). Eddie Jacksons interception led to Griffiths 39-yard field goal with nine seconds left in the second quarter. Delahoussaye kicked a 35-yard field goal in the third quarter to tie the game.

Morgenstern has moved to a rehabilitation clinic in Klagenfurt for further recovery.NEW YORK -- It took a few hours on the final day of the NFL draft for A.J. McCarron, Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger to finally hear their names called. It took much longer, but Missouri defensive end Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to enter the draft, heard his in the seventh and final round. Sam was taken 249th out of 256 picks, by St. Louis. There was applause at Radio City Music Hall from the slim crowd on hand. Scouts had pegged him to be a mid- to late-round selection, but he didnt perform well at the combine; some questioned whether he would be drafted at all. The star quarterbacks of the SEC went earlier, but will be long shots to become early starters in the pros. McCarron led Alabama to two national titles, but had to wait until the 164th overall spot to be selected by Cincinnati. Georgias Murray went one pick earlier Saturday to Kansas City. LSUs Mettenberger didnt go until the sixth round, to Tennessee. Virginia Techs Logan Thomas, not nearly as accomplished as the SEC passers, was the first QB chosen on the last day, by Arizona in the fourth round. Murray had a penchant for big plays with the Bulldogs, but the SECs career passing leader tore his ACL on Nov. 8 and did not work out during the NFL combine. He figures to compete for a third-string job this year. "Theres no restrictions, no second thought when Im running, cutting," Murray said. "Its full-speed, full-go ahead." McCarron expects to learn behind Andy Dalton, who led the Bengals to three straight playoff berths for the first time in franchise history. "Im confident in myself, but at the same time, I know Andys the QB out there and I respect that," McCarron said. "All I want to do is go in and help us in whatever way I can. If that means me holding the clipboard for a couple of years and giving Andy reports during the week and watching film with him and helping him in any way I can, Im just ready to do it." Thomas comes out of school healthy, but the inconsistency that plagued his career hurt his draft stock. Thomas never really improved to the level expected with the Hokies after a strong debut. Hes big, with a strong arm, but is turnover prone. "Ive grown as a quarterback in this off-season," Thomas said. "Everybodys basing it off the season, which I understand. Thats whats on film. But this off-season was a chance I was able to really go refine some things." In all, 14 quarterbacks were selected. Early Saturday, many picks had ties to Clemson star receiver Sammy Watkins. Watkins, the fourth overall selection in the first round by Buffalo, saw his older brother, Florida cornerback Jaylen Watkins, taken by Philadelphia to open the fourth round.dddddddddddd Philadelphia acquired the selection the previous day from Houston, trading its third-round pick (No. 83) for the Texans fourth- and fifth-round spots. "Today is a very big day for our family," Jaylen said. "I texted him (Thursday) before he went on stage and he just texted me ... were both excited for each other. We cant complain about anything that happened this year for us." The next pick, by Washington, was Sammy Watkins college teammate, cornerback Bashaud Breeland, who went up against the nations top wideout in practice for several years at Clemson. Watkins fellow receiver with the Tigers, Martavis Bryant, also went in the fourth round, to Pittsburgh. Andre Williams of Boston College, the nations leading rusher, went to the New York Giants, whose backfield has been plagued by injuries. Williams rushed for 2,177 yards and won the Doak Walker Award as Americas top running back in 2013, but he is considered a weak receiver. "Patience is a really valuable thing," Williams said. "It worked out the best possible way it could, no matter what round it ended up being." Arizonas KaDeem Carey, like Williams, an All-American runner, was taken four spots later by Chicago. Oregons DeAnthony Thomas went to Kansas City, ostensibly to replace departed Dexter McCluster. National champion Florida State had two players go in the first five picks Saturday: running back Devonta Freeman to Atlanta, and centre Bryan Stork, another All-American, to New England. Big 12 power Oklahoma, which was blanked in the first three rounds, broke through when the New York Jets drafted receiver Jalen Saunders. Another powerhouse program, Texas, did not have anyone taken, although its former quarterback, Garrett Gilbert, who transferred to SMU, was chosen at the end of the sixth round. While the Longhorns were looking for someone to be picked, Duke had a drafted player. When Buffalo made cornerback Ross Cockrell the 109th overall selection, it was the highest a Blue Devil had gone since offensive lineman Lennie Friedman went to Denver in the second round in 1999. Cockrell thought Duke making the Chick-Fil-A bowl helped his stock. "I think it opened a lot of eyes that this guy from Duke can actually play a little ball and will be able to compete at the next level," he said. The final player chosen, dubbed "Mr. Irrelevant," was Memphis safety Lonnie Ballentine. He was taken by the Texans. There were a record 102 early entrants into this draft, and 61 were selected.
