Ain't that the truth. Your defense, especially in the second half, pretty much has throttled their offense (and QB) where they haven't down squat. McCarron was 1 of 7 for 0 yards in the second half. Then on the last drive, with about 1:30 minutes left, you basically loosen up your "grip" (pressure), have your secondary playing soft coverage, thinking the clock is Alabama's worst enemy right now? Then when they have moved down, well within FG range, they decide to blitz, played right into the screen play, and the rest is history.
IMO, this is on Les Miles. But I'm not a Les Miles fan.
