The Alabama Crimson Tide started tonight's game against the Oklahoma Sooners as a 14-point favorite in the contest. Early in the second quarter, the Tide held a 28-0 lead and it looked like the Sooners were about to get their doors blown off.

However, Oklahoma has battled back and cut the lead to 28-10 just before the half. Alabama took the ball and drove down the field and nearly had a touchdown, but three penalty calls on the final drive led to an Alabama field goal rather than a touchdown.

Nick Saban was furious with his team after star running back Damien Harris was flagged for a false start on fourth-and-short.

Saban spiked his headset - and it looks like he needs a new one.

Every college football fan has seen Nick Saban explode on the sideline so this is nothing new. Three penalties in a short span will do that.

Alabama takes a 31-10 lead into the half.
