Alabama Vs. LSU: LSU's Offense Keeps Them In The Game (No, Really.)

Please do not read this update while operating heavy machinery: LSU, the team whose offense has sputtered loudly beneath a rain of Tiger Stadium boos all season, scored a 75 yard TD through the air. You also shouldn’t be reading anything while operating heavy machinery period, but especially this.

What’s more shocking is that it was the much-maligned Jordan Jefferson who threw a beautiful pass to Rueben Randle, who then ran it in against a massive coverage bust by Alabama. Alabama then responded with their usual methodical cool, capping an 11 play drive with a five yard Mark Ingram TD, but that’s normal. LSU staying in the game with their offense going into the fourth is anything but usual, and worth special mention.
