It was one of the sadder moments on Saturday. But it brought two rival programs together.
Alabama defensive back Eddie Jackson broke his leg on Saturday while returning a punt against Texas A&M. Jackson was an All-American for the Crimson Tide and one of their most vocal leaders. A number of Crimson Tide players and fans offered their support for Jackson after the injury.
And one former LSU defensive back also took the time to send some positive thoughts to the Alabama playmaker. It was famed LSU defensive back Tyrann Mathieu.

Mathieu and the Arizona Cardinals take on the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night. The Tigers and Crimson Tide face off in two weeks, when the two teams meet in their annual tussle. The game will be played in Baton Rouge.
