It looks like one key member of the Alabama defense didn’t like what LSU running back Derrius Guice had to say. And linebacker Ryan Anderson let the world know about it.
Guice said on Saturday that the Alabama defense was “scared” of the LSU rushing attack, which is why Alabama would stack the box against LSU.
Anderson saw what he had to say and had some sharp words of his own for the LSU running back.
Anderson tweeted “Yea we’re terrified to play in the Louisiana crawfish bowl every year!!! #clown #donkeyoftheyear.”
Anderson and the Crimson Tide defense certainly did their part in shutting down the LSU offense, as Alabama shut out LSU 10-0. The Alabama defense held LSU to just 33 rushing yards and Guice to eight yards on two carries. Guice did finish last night’s game with 252 rushing yards.
For the second straight week the Alabama defense held its opponent without a touchdown, as the Crimson Tide blasted Mississippi State 51-3. Alabama has gone nine consecutive quarters without giving up a touchdown, which goes back to the Texas A&M game on Oct. 22.
Anderson, a senior from Daphne, Al., has 6.5 sacks on the season as well as 14.5 tackles for loss. He leads the Crimson Tide in the latter category and is third in the conference in the stat. Anderson is also tied for eighth in the SEC in sacks, but is in third place on his own team.
The Crimson Tide also clinched their third consecutive SEC West title on Saturday thanks to an Auburn loss. Alabama is the first team to win its division three consecutive times since Florida won four straight SEC East titles from 1993 to 96. Alabama was also the only team in the top four of the College Football Playoff rankings to win on Saturday, as Clemson, Michigan and Washington all lost.
Anderson and the Alabama defense take on Chattanooga this Saturday.
