LSU Vs. Alabama Game Update: Tide Defense Stuffs Tigers Again

How would the LSU Tigers respond to an imposing Alabama Crimson Tide field goal? That's one-fifth as many points as these teams combined for the first time around! LSU had yet to muster a single first down on its first two drives, to boot.

Odell Beckham started proceedings with a skying grab of a Jordan Jefferson pass. Jefferson, who's looked shellshocked early on, pumped on second down and ran for the first Tigers conversion of the evening.

He was stuffed on the following play by Dre Kirkpatrick while trying to reach the corner. A sharp pass on a short route brought it back to third-and-four, but C.J. Mosley ate up Alfred Blue on a swing route to kill the drive.
