Alabama Vs. LSU: Somebody Scores A Touchdown! (It's Trent Richardson)

We return to action in Baton Rouge with the Trent Richardson show. The sophomore phenom gets off a 22-yard run down to LSU's 1-yard line, is stuffed twice at the goal line, and finally catches a quick pass from Greg McElroy for the game's first touchdown.

It will be the only score of the quarter, and it knocks Trent Richardson down with a knee contusion in the process, but he can be seen in the sidelines riding the stationary bike and is expected to return to action.

Jordan Jefferson can't get good running room, and the Tigers punt. Mark Ingram can't get good running room, and the Tide punt. Two more three-and-outs, one featuring a harangue of Jarrett Lee's lack of quarterbacking prowess by a huffy Gary Danielson in the booth. Nobody's making anything happen on special teams. A thoroughly soporific half of football draws to a close, with Alabama leading LSU, 7-3.

Alabama Vs. LSU: Sleepy First Quarter In Baton Rouge

It's a quiet first quarter so far in Baton Rouge, with the rancor in the stands wildly outpacing the action on the field. The Tide and Tigers trade three-and-outs to open play, and a Kelvin Sheppard interception of Greg McElroy provides the first real breath of life.

It's a breath that comes to no fruition, as LSU can't get more than six yards deep in Alabama territory, and settles for a 45-yard field goal.

Trent Richardson, it should be noted, has returned two kickoffs this quarter. One for ten yards on the opening kick, and one near-disaster now as he false-starts out of the endzone before taking a knee.

Julio Jones fumbles on the Tide's second play from scrimmage, but recovers to convert the downs on the next play. Bama won't get much more off this drive, and punts at their own 30. Six plays later, the Tigers punt back. Preston Dial, Julio Jones, and Mark Ingram provide the bursts of yardage needed on the next drive, and as the third quarter ends, the Tide is at LSU's 32, trailing 0-3 in Baton Rouge.
