Tide dominates drive, Tigers turn to tricks and trail 7-3.
The Alabama Crimson Tide looked like the number one team in the country on a 92 yard drive to take the lead 7-3 over LSU.
Dutchtown native Eddie Lacy capped an impressive drive with a seven yard plow through the LSU defense. Alabama ran 11 plays, all of them for positive yardage.
The Tigers appeared to regain momentum in the game when Jerqwinick Sandolph recovered a muffed punt at the Alabama 32 yard line.
LSU running back Jeremy Hill broke off a 19 yard run down to the 13 of Alabama, however a personal foul on fullback JC Copeland pushed LSU back to the 28.
Three failed plays later, Les Miles sent his field goal unit onto the field and ran a painful fake field goal attempt when Brad Wing tossed the ball Drew Alleman for a three yard loss sucking all of the excitement out of the stadium.
The Tigers then drove from the shadows of their own goalposts to the Alabama 37 yard line, and with a shorter distance to gain a first down and a further field goal try at 54 yards, Alleman came up short on his attempt.
