After facing a traditionally strong defensive team such as LSU, it could be expected to have a negative effect on an offense moving into the next week. But this seems a little bizarre.
Alabama took a 10-0 lead over Mississippi State in the first quarter on Saturday after freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts connected with Calvin Ridley for a touchdown.
But get this — it was the first time the Crimson Tide have scored a first-quarter touchdown in the game after their LSU matchup since 2001, according to the SEC Network. Last week, Alabama pulled out a close 10-0 victory over the Tigers on the road.
Watch the Crimson Tide take an early lead with that touchdown below:
