WATCH: Nick Saban rages, throws headset, up 28-10

Even when the Alabama Crimson Tide are dominating, head coach Nick Saban often finds something to be furious about.

So when his players made repeated pre-snap penalties and cost the Crimson Tide a touchdown, he absolutely lost it.

Saban was already enraged after offensive lineman Jedrick Willis Jr. committed a false start penalty then wiped out a big play that would have put Alabama’s offense at the one-yard line thanks to Willis Jr.’s illegal formation.

The Crimson Tide lost out on a potential touchdown but still led 28-10. After Saban decided to go for it on 4th-and-1, a false start by running back Damien Harris pushed Alabama’s offense back again and forced a field goal. The boiling rage spilled over the top for Saban.

Needless to say, Saban was none too pleased and he took it all out on his headset. Keep in mind, the Crimson Tide were already up by three scores and dominating.

Alabama’s players will head into the locker room with a 21-point lead at halftime, however, Oklahoma’s players will have a significantly better halftime experience than those facing Nick Saban.
