LSU vs Alabama football final scores, results, highlights and recap: Crimson Tide get what they want?

The Alabama Crimson Tide defeated the LSU Tigers, 30-16, in one of the most important games in the SEC on Saturday night at Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Derrick Henry rushed for 210 yards and three touchdowns in 38 carries to stabilize Alabama’s standing in the college football playoff. The Crimson Tide physically overpowered the undefeated LSU Tigers at both ends of the floor.

Defensively, the Crimson Tide contained the rushing game of Leonard Fournette who had only 31 yards in 19 carries, far from his previous low this season which was 154 yards.

”Too much talk about Fournette and me,” Henry said. ”I’m just trying to win with the Crimson Tide.”

The Crimson Tide also have now the control of their destiny after Arkansas defeated Ole Miss, 53-52, in OT. The Ole Miss Rebels are the only team that defeated the Crimson Tide.

”We didn’t play perfectly but I thought it was really important that we could control the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball, and we did a really good job of that,” Tide coach Nick Saban said.

LSU quarterback Brandon Harris threw for 128 yards and one touchdown against one interception, and added 20 yards. On the other hand, Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback completed 18 of 24 passes for 184 yards but kept his offense on the field longer against the opponents defense.

”Our defense was on the field for the whole second half virtually,” LSU coach Les Miles said. ”We have to improve. We can’t take those kinds of events. This football team is much better than they showed tonight.”

Alabama will play Mississippi State next week and they have a match against Auburn. If Alabama wins those games, they will be in the SEC championship game.
