Though the sting of defeat is still clearly fresh in Kelly's head, he sent his seniors a honest, uplifting message after leading a team that entered the season as an afterthought to an undefeated regular season. In the victory over the Sooners, he completed a staggering 89 percent of his attempts and threw more touchdowns (four) than incompletions (three). Despite winning both games, Alabama covered the spread in neither.
