Miles, Saban voice support for SEC officials

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - LSU coach Les Miles says he is satisfied with the response he received from the SEC about a questionable call by officials during the Tigers' game against Alabama.

Miles said Monday he has spoken with Southeastern Conference commissioner Mike Slive and coordinator of officials Rogers Redding regarding a near-interception by Patrick Peterson late in the ninth-ranked Tigers' 24-15 loss Saturday.

Miles says he was fine with what he was told, and if he felt differently, he "would say so."

SEC spokesman Charles Bloom said the league would not comment on the call.

Alabama made it a two-score game with a field goal on the drive that would have ended if Peterson's catch had been ruled inbounds.
