No. 1 Alabama survives No. 9 Florida, 31-29, in SEC opener at The Swamp

Alabama is still undefeated, but perhaps not quite as invincible.

Despite a fast start at No. 9 Florida that made it seem like the No. 1-ranked Crimson Tide would cruise through first SEC game of the season, it took their offense converting a first down in the final couple minutes to finally secure a 31-29 victory on Saturday in Gainesville.

Alabama took an early 21-3 lead after their first three possessions but seemed to lose a bit of focus in the second quarter, allowing the Gators enough of an opportunity to work their way back in the game.
