Here's a look at what Alabama coach Nick Saban said after his team came back to beat Texas A&M in College Station, 26-20.

On the decision to feature Jermaine Burton

“We’ve always had faith in Burton as a big play player. It was our plan to try to protect and make some plays down the field. That’s something we did effectively.”

On the win

“This may be a record game for me as far as messing up and still winning. “

On Jalen Milroe’s record day

“One thing Jalen has learned is keep playing the next play. Bad things are going to happen. Keep playing the next play. Distribute the ball.”

On the importance of Caleb Downs’ pick

“I think the turnover when Caleb Downs intercepted changed the momentum of the game. The fact we were able to play good in the red zone was important early in the game.

“We gave up a big play and got two penalties, but this is a great win for us.”

On injuries

“Malachi Moore i has a twisted ankle  and James Burnip has a pulled muscle  in his leg."

On Jaeden Roberts starting at right guard

“We had a tough time running the ball. It’s hard for me to say how he played. Dalcourt had a shoulder problem. I thought 77 [Roberts] did a good job.”

On the secondary subs after Moore went out

“Trey Amos did a good job. When Malachi first went out we made some mental errors. Amos and Kristian Story did a good job adapting in the game. “

On winning despite multiple penalties and sacks

“We can be a very good team. The injuries are mounting. I don’t think we have any easy games coming up. We’ve got lots of challenges.

We need to fix internally what we can fix ourselves. That’s what we need to do a better job of.”

Alabama is now 5-1, 3-0 SEC and will host Arkansas Saturday, Oct. 14 at 11 a.m. CT. The game can be heard on both Tide 100.9 and 95.3 The Bear.
