TD to open it, and I can breathe.
Time to step on their throats. 21-3 would be a dagger.

Got my can of whoop ass ready.
Need to come out and drive it down on 8 play drive for score and LSU will start to quit. At least i hope it happens that way. Got to quit giving them chances
Ready to dominAte this second half! Roll Tide!!
Let's go Tide
We've survived a killer turnover and a Les Miles moment, we've kept them out of the endzone, and we get the ball to start the half. All in all, feeling pretty good, but there's a long way to go.
Nick Saban Halftime Quote:
“We’re just not stopping the run well enough and they’re breaking some runs on us. We’ve got to play better on the edges. We need to settle down. We’re making a lot of mistakes in run support. The guys are getting confused out there, but they’re (LSU) not really doing anything different from what we’ve practiced. Offensively, we’re doing a good job of moving the ball and controlling the ball and I think that’s going to be a real key in the second half.”
GAME CAPTAINS: The Alabama captains for the LSU game were Damion Square, Robert Lester and Chance Warmack. Alabama won the toss and elected to defer the opening kickoff.
TIDE 57-3 UNDER SABAN WHEN LEADING AT THE HALF: Alabama heads into the locker room with a 14-3 lead at the half. The Crimson Tide is 57-3 when leading at halftime under head coach Nick Saban.
SCORING DRIVE: The 92-yard scoring drive for the Crimson Tide was the longest allowed by LSU this season. It is the second longest scoring drive on the season for Alabama (FAU, 95 yards).
THREE POINTS OR LESS AT THE HALF: Alabama has allowed three points or less heading into halftime five times this season. The Tide has allowed a touchdown or less eight times this season. Alabama has outscored its opponents, 222-34 in the first half through nine games.
TOUCHDOWNS VERSUS LSU: Alabama has not allowed a touchdown against LSU since the Tigers scored with 8:13 left in the fourth quarter in the 24-21 loss in 2010. The streak has spanned 10 quarters and an overtime period.
ALABAMA TRAILED: Alabama trailed for its longest period on the season as it fell behind LSU for 12:54. The Tigers scored on a field goal at 6:11 in the first quarter then the Tide took the lead with 8:17 left in the second quarter on an Eddie Lacy touchdown.
TRAILING AT THE END OF A QUARTER: It was the first time Alabama has trailed at the end of a quarter since a 2010 loss against Auburn when they trailed at the end of the 4th quarter. It's also the first time the Tide has trailed at the end of the 1st quarter since 2010 when they trailed 3-0 at LSU.
SHELLEY PERFECT: Senior Jeremy Shelley is the only kicker across the nation yet to miss an extra point or a field goal in 2012. Thus far, Shelley has hit all 42 of his extra point attempts and all nine of his field goals. Navy kicker Nick Sloan missed two field goals today against Florida Atlantic.
SCORING STREAK: With Eddie Lacy’s 7-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, Alabama raised its current total of consecutive games in which it scored to 151 – the longest streak in program history.
Up 14-3 and survived a turnover. I'll take it. Let's finish this! RTR!!
We score a TD here ... This game is ours
Its Amari Cooper time
Losing doesn't make me want to quit. It makes me want to fight that much harder-Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant
LSU kicks the ball off and kicks it deep for the touchback.

Time to drive it down the field!
Let's get a good drive going. Come on Bama!
First pass of the half goes incomplete.
Lacy spins again for a good gain.
Need to be running until they can stop it.
Big Fluke lucky not to get flagged.
