Photo Report: SC squeaks by Bama

For the second week in a row, Alabama improved significantly on one side of the football. But unfortunately, Saturday's excellent offensive output was completely offset by a poor second-half effort on defense.

Though the two have known each other for some time, Saturday's game was the first time they have ever coached opposing teams. South Carolina defeated Alabama 37-36.

Watts finished with 393 yards of total offense, 162 of it on the ground. That total of rushing yards places him eighth all-time in the SEC for a single-game rushing performance by a quarterback.
