It is never easy to get a road win in the SEC. Add the mental errors of 3 interceptions, 130 yards of penalties, a blocked punt, and punt returned for a touchdown, and it will be a long night. Thankfully, the one turnover that mattered the most was the fumble recovery by LSU that led to the final score to go ahead and win, 41-34. I'm still not sure if I'm happier that we beat Bama or Saban!
Now with BC's lost to Florida State, it won't be an issue. However, had they won out and LSU as well, there is no way they should have stayed on top. Last night's game was LSU's 6 game against a top 25 opponent, winning 5 and barely losing the 6th. BC has only played one team, VA Tech and barely beat them, while we blew out VT. We still have to go to the SEC Championship game against another top 25 team and as South Carolina found out last night, Arkansas, even though not ranked, isn't a cake walk with McFadden.
All that to say while the win was not pretty and we tried as hard as possible to give it away at times, I'll definitely take it! GEAUX TIGERS!!!
