TOP 5 PERFORMANCES VS ALABAMA
By LONN PHILLIPS SULLIVAN
It was a game many true Tigers will remember for a long time as "the Saturday where 2021 LSU made a stand", a night where LSU's defense rolled back the clocks to the early 2010s while doing more than enough to beat Alabama four times over....
Even still....against #2 Alabama, our 4-4 Tigers did us proud: embarrassing Saban in front of his own fans inside his own house, while missing 7 defensive starters & 16 future NFL players, our Tigers held the Crimson Tide to just 6 rushing yards and only lost on the final play by 6 points (the spread was nearly 30 points by kickoff).
Many of our players experienced their first ever starts on the road @ #2 Alabama, and to have this valuable experience, even in defeat, is the start of something massive for the future of the LSU program.
Young studs such as B.J Ojulari, Jack Bech, Brian Thomas Jr, Max Johnson, Malik Nabers, Jaquelin Roy, Mike Jones Jr, Dwight McGlothern, Darren Evans & Pig Cage learning from the few veterans left: Damone Clark, Ty Davis-Price, Jay Ward, Neil Farrell Jr, Cam Lewis and Micah Baskerville.....it's a special passing of the torch:
Together, this squad made every LSU Tigers fan proud.....at the program's lowest moment since 1992, senior or freshman, junior or sophomore, 4 star, 5 star, 0 star, JUCO transfer, walk-on..... it didn't matter....
