Do the Refs, ahem, Hold the Key to the Game?

Sorry for the bad pun, but here's you last stat of the day: Alabama has not been flagged for holding since its October 17 game against South Carolina. What's more, Bama's offensive line hasn't been flagged for holding since the second quarter of the October 3 Alabama-Kentucky game.

To say the least, I find it improbable that any team (especially a run-oriented one) can go that long without committing a hold. Congratulations to the Tide for both being exceedingly well disciplined at not holding and very adept at hiding it when you do.

Any bets as to whether the Tide get a holding hanky tonight?
