Alabama head coach Nick Saban is facing some criticism for what he did at the end of the Crimson Tide's game against Mississippi State.

Saban had Alabama go for it on 4th down up, 24-0, with less than two minutes to play against the Bulldogs.

Some believe Alabama was attempting to run up the score to impress the voters, making the game seem like a bigger blowout than it was.

Mississippi State stopped Alabama, though, so the Bulldogs were able to end the game on a high note, at least.

Alabama went on to win the game, 24-0, to improve to 10-0 on the season.
