Jordan Jefferson Overwhelmed By Alabama Defense In National Championship Game

Staring up at an insurmountable 6-0 deficit, the LSU Tigers took back the ball midway through the second quarter hoping for a really good punt to set up a field goal that they could block and return for good enough field position to kick a field goal of their own.

Kenny Hilliard got the call at halfback, achieving little up the gut on first down. Jordan Jefferson was able to gain a few on a play action boot after target Odell Beckham was blanketed. Amazing watching Bama's enormous defensive line chase the fleet quarterback out of bounds.

A LSU time out killed what looked like a potential first down on a draw by Jefferson. The actual third down play involved another bobbled snap and nada. Jefferson looks completely overwhelmed in this game. He's averaging 3.8 yards per attempt and 1.6 yards per carry.

Punter Brad Wing bailed things out yet again.

Kirk Herbstreit and Brent Musburger are reminding you LSU has started slow on offense in their last two games as well. They'd prefer it if you didn't turn away, snoozingly.
