Update: LSU scores only points of third quarter, game tied 10-10
The LSU Alabama game has settled into a defensive slugfest as expected.
LSU scored the only points of the second half, a 35 yard field goal from kicker Colby Delahoussaye to tie the game at 10-10.
LSU's offense had two drives that chewed up 13 minutes of the clock, keeping Alabama's defense on the field.
Alabama scored ten points in the second quarter to take a 10-7 lead into halftime over LSU in Tiger Stadium.
Alabama wide receiver Amari Cooper has been hard to cover for LSU corner Jalen Collins so far in this game. Cooper took a quick slant pass and broke a tackle on the way to a 24 yard touchdown to tie the game at seven.
LSU quarterback Anthony Jennings fired a dart to the wrong team for his first interception of the game.
Travin Dural slipped and fell to the turf on his route, and Eddie Jackson was right there for the easy catch.
That interception set up a 39 yard field goal from Adam Griffith to give Alabama the 10-7 lead heading into the break.
The LSU Tigers cashed in on a jump ball in the corner to Malachi Dupre for the only score of the first period of play against Alabama.
Dupre cradled the ball from Anthony Jennings in his left arm and got one foot inbounds for the 13 yard touchdown catch giving LSU a 7-0 early lead.
LSU's defense limited Alabama to only two first downs in the quarter and just 38 total yards.
The seven play, 42 yard scoring drive by LSU pushed their tally to 79 total yards on 20 plays.
