The pressure to remain unbeaten in college football is intense. A single lose could ruin a National Championship run.
Last night in Tuscaloosa, Alabama the Crimson Tide took their first L at home since 2015. The 46 points they surrendered where the most since 1907 (54 to Sewanee)
The LSU Tigers came in ranked #2 and Bama was #3.
Senior Quarterback Joe Burrow led his team to victory 46-41. Burrow completed 31 of his 39 passes thrown for 393 yards and 3 TDs.
Going into half-time LSU had a commanding 33-13 lead. The second half was mostly all Alabama.
The Tides defense stepped up and held LSU scoreless in the third quarter, but the offense could only muster up 7 points chipping into the lead.
The fourth quarter we saw 34 points scored total and saw the The Tide come ‘rolling’ back.
Tua Tagovailoa threw for 418 yards with 21 completions and 4 Tds. A lot of those numbers came in the last few minutes as the Tide stormed back.
Bama scored 21 points in the fourth but they ran out of time. LSU was able to hold on 46-41 improving to 9-0. The loss dropped the Crimson Tide to 8-1.
The win keeps LSU’s championship aspirations intact, the loss could knock Alabama out of the whole playoff picture for the first time in 5 years.
