(Photo by Jonathan Bachman/Getty Images)Tua Tagovailoa hadn’t come close to meeting his match so far this season. LSU’s defense is giving him a real test early in this game.The Crimson Tide lead 9-0, but it has been a serious grind.Earlier in the game, Tagovailoa was briefly knocked out after taking a huge shot to the midsection. He’s back in, but Alabama’s offensive line needs to keep him upright; it was Mac Jones to replace him and not Jalen Hurts, who is recovering from minor ankle surgery.Saban lit into Tua after he was forced to call a timeout. The Tiger Stadium crowd is always hard to deal with.Moments ago LSU’s pressure forced the first interception of the year from Tua Tagovailoa.He was flushed from the pocket and let one rip downfield, as he often does. This time, for the first time this year, an opponent came down with it.HE’S HUMAN pic.twitter.com/dY0xDdwPS9— Blogging The Boys (@BloggingTheBoys) November 4, 2018Todd Harris came away with the ball on the rare Tua mistake.Of course, LSU wound up with the ball deep in its own territory, and Joe Burrow was nearly sacked for a safety during the drive. LSU was lucky to be able to punt out of the end zone.Alabama wound up taking advantage anyway. Tagovailoa quickly hit tight end Irv Smith Jr. for a touchdown to make it 16-0. He hasn’t been as sharp as he always is, but Tua is still making mostly great throws against an elite defenselast_img
