The infamous "Baby Trump" balloon that has been seen worldwide at protests against President Donald Trump was slashed and deflated at an event held outside the Alabama-LSU football game in Tuscaloosa, Alabama on Saturday.

The Tigers blew open the game just before halftime with two touchdowns in the span of 20 seconds at the end of the second quarter.

His reception at the showdown between LSU and Alabama contrasted with the scene last month at Game 5 of the World Series in Washington, where he was booed, and the mixed response to his appearance at UFC 244 in NY a week ago.

The Tigers outgained Alabama 559-541, as the Tide had a touchdown receptions of 64 and 85 yards from quarterback Tua Tagovailoa along with a 77-yard punt return for a touchdown. Alabama's student government association warned students against being disruptive, but said their First Amendment rights would not be muzzled. With just over 10 minutes remaining, Edwards-Helaire evaded a tackle in the backfield with a nasty spin and walked into the endzone.

For now, her smile will speak for the entire LSU fan base, who finally can gloat after almost a decade of futility against the Crimson Tide. Tagovailoa had a fumble and an interception in the first half.

LSU: At Mississippi on Saturday night. It kept going from game seemingly over to game on.

"A lot to overcome, but I have to tell you I was really, really proud of the players in the second half", Saban said.

Burrow got home to a sea of LSU fans loudly cheering the arrival of their team and quarterback like they're the Beatles during their first trip to the U.S. They got a boy band reception from the crowd, and Burrow soaked it all in.

And on Saturday, he planned to be at the college football showdown between No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Alabama's resume is not good and without the LSU win, there is not much else to boost them in the eyes of the committee. We don't want to waste a failure. We're still going to do what we do and go back to work on Monday and finish this season strong.

Trump's reception at the showdown between Louisiana State and Alabama contrasted with the scene at Game 5 of the World Series in Washington, where was booed, and the mixed response to his appearance at a martial arts fight in NY. "We've been in this situation before, so I think the big thing is everyone needs to learn from the mistakes we made today and try to get better". Kickoff is scheduled for 11 a.m. on ESPN and on WJLX 101.5 FM in Jasper.
