Nick Saban speaks to what Alabama must correct in the second half against LSU
Nick Saban outlined what LSU was most effective with in the first half against LSU, as the Crimson Tide trailed 7-6 in Tiger Stadium.
Alabama had an interception in the first half, and the Tide mustered just 44 rushing yards, and the offense also suffered several dropped passes.
Alabama got a break late in the first half with a fumble that was reviewed and overturned.
Saban with Holly Rowe of ESPN at halftime explained how it unfolded for the LSU defense.
“They’re doing a lot of zone blitzing, bringing a guy off the edge, dropping a guy, getting into the windows of some of the RPOs,” Saban said. “We’ve got to be able to run the ball better so we don’t get into these long-yardage situations putting too much pressure on the quarterback.”
Saban also responded to a question about pressure on Bryce Young.
“He’s been effective, we’ve dropped a couple balls, we’re not getting away from people,” Saban said. “They’re dropping 8 guys, doing a good job of mixing it up, so we’ve got to give him some better options.
