LSU running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire scored 4 touchdowns for the Tigers, who topped the #2 Alabama Crimson Tide 46-41 in Tuscaloosa on Saturday afternoon. Perhaps Burrow had his on the 12-play, 75-yard touchdown drive early in the fourth quarter that featured three clutch third-down conversions - two Burrow passes and a Burrow run that extended the lead back to two scores.

The incident occurred during Mr Trump's visit to watch the University of Alabama football game.

LSU (9-0, 5-0) hosts Ole Miss (4-6, 2-4) at Tiger Stadium next week at 6:00 pm.

The president was accompanied by his wife, First Lady Melania Trump at Bryant-Denny Stadium, where the SEC rivals went toe-to-toe in the biggest college football duel of the season so far. The Tide scored four straight touchdowns and thrice pulled within one score, but each time LSU got into danger, Joe Burrow pulled them out of it.

No. 3 Alabama (8-1, 5-1) wouldn't let a 31-game home winning streak and eight straight defeats of its SEC West rivals go without an epic fight fitting of another "Game of the Century" moniker.

The game's opening drive ended with Tagovailoa fumbling the ball at LSU's 8-yard line despite not being touched.

It was a breakout performance from Edwards-Helaire on the biggest stage as he racked up four total touchdowns against a previously dominant Alabama defense.

The call and concerns over it became known when an intelligence services whistleblower filed an anonymous report. Critics of Cipollone's position say it disregards the oversight role of Congress as set out in the constitution.


It's probably safe to assume Tua Tagovailoa was hoping the first half of Saturday's game would go a little better.

LSU led by as many as 20, gaining a 33-13 lead at halftime.

LSU quarterback Joe Burrow entered his team's sport towards Alabama as a person of the favorites to win the Heisman Trophy in December. Tagovailoa had a fumble and an interception in the first half.

LSU's quarterback completed his first 13 passes for 208 yards and two touchdowns to build a cushion. LSU had not beaten Alabama since 2011, so this was a huge obstacle LSU had to get past.
