3 takeaways from Alabama football’s 42-28 victory over LSU

With this win, the Crimson Tide now hold an 8-1 season record and maintain an undefeated 6-0 record in SEC play.

This game was never expected to be a defensive battle. The 2011 9-6 game is a distant memory for both Alabama and LSU.

Alabama lost a possession when Will Reichard missed his first of two field goal attempts this season, a 47-yarder.
