LSU brought their A game, and still for whatever reason lost to Alabama's B- game.
That might be the truth.
I don't think so. The obvious strength on LSU's team has been the D-line. AJ had forever to throw the ball and their RBs were getting five yards before they were even touched. It didn't look like their A game.
Then again, AJ had forever to throw the ball and couldn't find anyone open for the majority of the game. The secondary played great. But LSU has the #2 pass D in the nation (better than Bama's). It appears that's just what LSU does to teams trying to pass. You could say Bama's O-line caused the D-line to look like that. Perhaps that's what they do to teams. It works both ways.
