The SEC battle between the LSU Tigers and the Alabama Crimson Tide has already gotten underway, and it is a battle at that so far as the Tide currently hold a slim 3-0 lead in the first quarter.

That fumble was also recovered by Alabama, only this time they were able to get a field goal shortly after and grab a 3-0 lead.
