The first quarter ended with Alabama leading 3-0 and driving after a 26-yard McCarron-to-Kevin Norwood pass to the LSU 43.
Alabama had six first downs to one for LSU in the first quarter. Alabama had 102 yards to 28 for LSU.
The Crimson Tide completely dominated the quarter, yet they lead only 3-0.
But if A.J. McCarron (8-for-11, 88 yards) keeps making plays, LSU will be in trouble.
