Coming back from a week off Alabama was just not there. In the first minutes of the game Jalen Hurts, their quarterback, threw an interception that was caught by LSU’s safety Jamal Adams. Alabama’s offense didn’t start off on a good note but their defends was a different story. Rushing D. Etling and not letting their running back Leonard Fournette go anywhere.
