From ESPN's David Hale:
Alabama was a heavy favorite (the game closed at Alabama -30) in its final test before the SEC championship game, but once again, Nick Saban delivered. Perhaps it comes from knowing how Saban feels about rat poison, but the Tide have a long history of delivering the week before a big game. According to research ESPN Stats & Information, Saban is now 24-13 against the spread the week before playing top-10 opponents, including a 15-2 mark when favored by 20 points or more. Alabama has now covered seven straight games, the longest streak of covers in Saban's illustrious career. Good coaches win. Great ones cover.
We're still a month away from crowning a national champion, but the covers championship looks to be firmly in the hands of Indiana, which finished the regular season 7-0 against the spread. But here's a big hat tip to San Jose State, which erased a 13-point halftime deficit on Friday and stormed back for an easy cover against Nevada, running its record against the spread to 5-0-1 this season. They're the last two FBS teams to have covered or pushed in every game this season.
The Navy offense has been a mess for much of the season, and the Midshipmen managed nothing against Army. The game ended with a 15-0 victory for the Black Knights, 21 points shy of hitting the total. It's now been 15 consecutive years that the Army-Navy game has stayed under the total.
UCLA lined up for a 43-yard field goal to take the lead with 52 seconds left Saturday, but for Bruins backers, a cover already seemed all but assured. USC was favored by 3.5, and even a missed kick would result in the Trojans simply taking a knee and running out the clock. But Nicholas Barr-Mira made the kick, and it proved a big mistake. As 2020 has shown us, USC thrives when trailing in the final minutes. Kedon Slovis' first pass went for 35 yards to the UCLA 8, and one player later, he hit Amon-Ra St. Brown for a touchdown to take a 43-38 lead -- and secure the cover.
