2021 iron bowl maybe the most boring game in the series next to the 9-0 game in 2000. Really until the final drive, it was a game of two horrible OCs vs two mediocre DCs. Yeah the last minute was exciting for an Alabama fan, but it’s going to be only remembered for a drive in a non championship year, and nothing else.I wouldn't call the '21 Iron Bowl boredom, it just built tension throughout the game until the moment was right. Bama failed to get a 1st down with 2 minutes to go and it felt like the game was over. Bryce takes Bama on a 98-yard drive in less than a minute with no timeouts. Four overtimes. Amazing.
This wasn’t one of those 2011 LSU games in which great defenses dominated pedestrian offenses and ST was going to decide a game of equal teams. This was just a game in which a bad team was in a game that they had no business being in because a very good team decided to let Bill O’Brien call plays until the last 2 minutes.
