NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Despite pulling even with No. 4 Alabama with a little over two minutes to play in the first half, No. 2 LSU couldn't get into a consistent offensive rhythm as the Tigers fell to the Crimson Tide 30-16 Saturday night in Tuscaloosa.
Alabama's defense was able to contain the Tigers' (7-1, 2-1) star running back and the nation's leading rusher Leonard Fournette, holding him to only 31 yards and one score on 19 carries. Brandon Harris completed 6-of-19 passes for 128 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
The Crimson Tide (8-1, 5-1) was led by Derrick Henry who compiled 210 yards and three touchdowns on 38 carries.
LSU returns to action on November 14 as the Tigers play host to Arkansas.
