Burrow completed 31 of 39 passes and ran for 64 yards. He sat out against Arkansas the next week and then Alabama was off, giving him an extra week to recover for the biggest game of the season. "The second one, we practiced that this whole last week". He switched which hand he was holding the ball with and the ball simply slipped out. Scored two touchdowns in the final 26 seconds of the first half in a pivotal flurry that threatened to be overshadowed by the second half drama.
The CBS broadcast showed backup quarterback Mac Jones warming up on the sideline during the middle of the third quarter so Alabama was preparing for the possibility that Tagovailoa might be too hurt to finish the game. Justin Jefferson's stat line - seven catches for 79 yards - may not be spectacular but the way in which he regularly found open space over the middle gave Burrow a dependable target on third down.
LSU quarterback Joe Burrow has improved with each passing year, and he's saved his best for his senior season.

Tagovailoa had a fumble and an interception in the first half. The highest-ranked team falling out of the committee rankings was Utah, which sat at No. 15 before losing 38-20 at Arizona State.
Saturday is why Najee Harris was the No. 2 overall recruit in the 2017 recruiting class, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

Those issues continued into the second quarter as Tagovailoa's first pass of the Tide's seventh offensive series was intercepted by LSU linebacker Patrick Queen with 11 seconds left that allowed Burrow to find Edwards-Helaire for a 13-yard touchdown to go ahead 33-13 at halftime. It wasn't easy, but the Tigers played to their full potential on Saturday, and now they're in great position to make the College Football Playoff.
