Allen making big plays for 'Bama, including 'Superman' sack

Allen making big plays for 'Bama, including 'Superman' sack

At second glance, Jackson was inside of 10 yards.

Alabama senior defensive end Jonathan Allen talks about the challenge of defending LSU junior All-American running back Leonard Fournette. I think their quarterback is very smart in the way he sort of implements their offense.

Take, for instance, completions of 20 yards or more. Hurts has scored 21 touchdowns (12 passing, nine rushing) so far this season, ninth in Alabama's record books, and has taken control of the Crimson Tide offense as just a freshman. LSU's allowed just 11 sacks all season - good for 19th nationally. In addition, a win would do wonders for Ed Orgeron's chances at working his way into removing the "interim" from his head coach title at LSU. Orgeron has made a few tweaks to LSU's offense, including mixing up some formations and passing on what used to be obvious running downs. "He wants us to come play for the state, for the university, for ourselves, for our families, before we even thing about him", Jackson said. "We're in the indoor and everything's really loud".

"You never cut in the A-gap", Moore said.

Even Alabama coach Nick Saban sees it.

The win cleared a path to the BCS National Championship Game, to be played roughly 80 minutes south of LSU's campus at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

While they might not all be the absolute best talents on the field, these five players will determine the outcome on Saturday night in Death Valley. Most of the time over history, these two play late in the season. But I don't see this as a blowout.

As of Tuesday, Saban was not sure how he would replace Jackson. They're going to call their girlfriends.

China's J-20 stealth fighter makes public air show debut
China carried out the first test flight of the J-20 back in 2011, but it made its public debut at today's airshow. The warplane is China's second stealth fighter. "I think we learned very little".


"I think he'll do the same thing he did all year", Howard said of Hurts. That was one of the reasons Miles hired him as defensive line coach two years ago, and then chose Orgeron to fill a recruiting coordinator vacancy after last season.

LSU's exact offensive plan this time around isn't clear, and don't expect Orgeron to lift the shroud before the teams meet at 7 p.m. Saturday. Since he's taken over for Les Miles, Coach O has guided the Tigers to 3 straight victories.

Etling has been at his best lately, completing better than 61 percent of his passes for an average of 228 yards per game in wins against Mississippi State, Auburn, Southern Miss and Ole Miss.

"I think we've got a lot of confidence in what we're doing on the offensive side of the ball, the way we've been executing these past three weeks", Moore said. Still, in years past, United Kingdom couldn't win games it was supposed to, so this team has made strides thanks to a solid rushing attack headed by Benny Snell Jr. and Stanley "Boom" Williams.

Last week, LSU safety Dwayne Thomas got a little carried away with his bravado leading into this game. The Tide put seven defenders in the box on Fournette's first 10 runs, matching LSU's seven blockers. The Tigers continued to lose to Alabama in Tiger Stadium - 14 times from 1971 through 1998 with a 14-14 tie in 1985. If he does, Pocic hopes Etling will make Bama pay.

Why the Gators make it to Atlanta: They already own a nice cushion with only one conference loss and a head-to-head tiebreaker edge over Kentucky, the only other East team with fewer than three SEC defeats. "He filled (the holes) well". NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks wrote that Fournette's performance against the Rebels cemented him as the top rusher in the college game.

"They beat us. Now, we've just got to learn from it".

Ed Orgeron could prove to be the trump card LSU needs though. Maybe this is what he's talking about.
