Was the first game in a 30+ year timespan that LSU beat Bama in Baton Rouge. LSU was jinxed at home vs Bama until Saban broke that curse. The next game in BR 2002 , however, was the most lopsided LSU loss vs Bama 31-0.
Then LSU went on a 5 game win streak until Saban led Bama to a victory, in Baton Rouge of course
Pre-McClendon LSU was 5-6-2 against Bama, relatively even against them. Then he comes and LSU sucks it up going 2-14...Dietzel, Archer, Hallman, Dinardo go 6-13-1, Saban/Miles have gone 9-5.
