IT'S ALL FUN and games until someone gets fired. The University of Alabama canned a staffer who worked part-time at its football stadium for playing songs directed at the troubles of Auburn quarterback Cam Newton before the start of last Friday's Iron Bowl. Newton has come under scrutiny amid allegations that his father, Cecil, a Baptist minister, solicted $180,000 from Mississippi State during Cam's recruiting. Some schmo realizing this serenaded Newton and Co. along with the rest of Bryant-Denny Stadium with the Steve Miller Band's "Take the Money and Run" and Aretha Franklin's version of "Son of a Preacher Man. " Only problem: Those songs weren't approved by Alabama's athletic administration, which evaluates all music played before and during games.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - No. 1 LSU gained the inside track to the BCS title game, beating No. 2 Alabama, 9-6, on Drew Alleman's 25-yard field goal in overtime after a fierce defensive struggle in which neither Southeastern Conference power reached the end zone on Saturday night. The Crimson Tide missed four field goals, including Cade Foster's 52-yard attempt after Alabama got the ball first in the extra period. LSU appeared to win the game on Michael Ford's run around left end after taking a pitch, but he stepped out of bounds at the 7. After two plays gained nothing, LSU (9-0, 6-0)

Alabama senior Van Tiffin learned all about the art of field goal kicking last year. After Tiffin kicked a 52-yarder in the last six seconds to beat hated instate rival Auburn, 25-23, Danny Moore, a Birmingham artist, designed a painting to immortalize the moment forever in oil. Moore's most famous Alabama football painting is "Goal Line Stand. " It depicts the moment in the 1979 Sugar Bowl when Tide stopped Penn State to win the national championship. Moore made Tiffin a celebrity with his impression of "The Kick.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - As Joe Paterno, hands deep in his khaki pockets, eyes fixed on Alabama ground softened by afternoon showers, walked uneasily toward Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday afternoon, a thick gauntlet of Crimson Tide fans chanted his name. "Joe Pa-ter-no! Joe Pa-ter-no!" He looked more comfortable later, an hour or so before Alabama began dismantling his 45th Penn State team, when he hugged Bobby Bowden, his 80-year-old rival, one who finally stopped chasing Paterno's victory record when Florida State made him quit last winter.

John Shaffer would rather just forget about the last time he appeared on national television. He still bears the scars from the lashings he received after Penn State's 25-10 loss to Oklahoma in last season's Orange Bowl. Shaffer, the Nittany Lions' quarterback, completed 10 of 22 passes for 74 yards in that game and was ineffective against the Sooners' dominating defense. Then a long night got longer when he had to stay up until 4 in the morning to tend to his mother, who had become ill at her hotel.

Color Penn State's 9-0 win over Alabama last night black and blue, depicting the punishment these two teams dealt each other. Color the Nittany Lions (5-2) happy, though, because they have now won five straight games, and their voracious defense is looking suspiciously like some of the great Penn State defenses of the past. And while the Nittany Lions thoroughly smothered the Crimson Tide (3-4) before 70,123 homecoming fans at Bryant-Denny Stadium, freshman Craig Fayak provided Penn State with some offense against a 'Bama defense that was suffocating.

A hypothetical question for Nittany Nation: Is it better to beat up on an Alabama team that's down, or to risk getting hammered on the road by a Crimson Tide outfit that might be the strongest in the country? If the No. 18 Nittany Lions (1-0) leave Tuscaloosa tomorrow night after upsetting defending national champion and top-ranked Alabama (1-0), the answer will be obvious. But if coach Nick Saban's Tide swamps the youngest group of Lions that Joe Paterno has helmed in recent memory, is the "learning experience" worth the bruises and bitter dose of reality those kids will take back with them to Happy Valley?

A year ago, he was far and away the surprise story in the talent-rich Southeastern Conference. He had people scratching their heads and asking, "Where did this Gary Hollingsworth come from, anyway?" Today, many of those same people are asking: "Whatever happened to Gary Hollingsworth?" Perhaps fame has never been as fleeting for a college football player as it has been for Hollingsworth, the lithe Alabama quarterback who passed his way into the rich lore of Crimson Tide football last season when he was named SEC player of the year and guided 'Bama to a 10-2 season and an Orange Bowl date against Miami.

NEW ORLEANS - The Rematch of the Century, it wasn't. Alabama romped to another BCS championship, stifling top-ranked LSU with a smothering defensive performance, a numbing barrage of field goals and even a long-overdue trip to the end zone. Good enough for No. 1, if not a lot of style points. No. 2 Alabama posted the first shutout in the 14-year history of the BCS, relying on Jeremy Shelley's right leg for most of the points - he made a bowl record-tying five field goals - and letting its defense do the rest.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The script went as expected Saturday night. But that didn't mean Joe Paterno had to be content with it. Alabama, with a bunch of playmakers on offense, played like the nation's No. 1 team. The red-clad Bryant-Denny Stadium crowd was loud and hostile. And Penn State's freshman quarterback, not surprisingly, played like a freshman. Rob Bolden threw two critical interceptions, with both passes picked off inside the Alabama 20, and the 18th-ranked Nittany Lions committed a total of four turnovers in falling, 24-3, to the Crimson Tide in front of an earsplitting crowd of 101,821.

There's no more pretending. A Penn State player no longer will quote the company line about how no one is looking ahead to Alabama because he needs to worry about the season opener against Youngstown State. This is what everyone was waiting for. This is Alabama week, capped by Saturday night's nationally televised game against college football's top-ranked team. "Now we don't have to talk about that we have something else before that," said wide receiver Brett Brackett, one of the heroes of the Nittany Lions' 44-14 win on Saturday.
