Tigers report: Notes, quotes

Notes, quotes · Strategy and personnel · Inside slant

LSU continues to play both JaMarcus Russell and Marcus Randall at quarterback with mixed results, but a revamped offensive line making up for the absence of injured center Ben Wilkerson played well against a tough Alabama defense. The Tigers are deep at running back, but versatile junior Joseph Addai has emerged as the most productive back over the past month.

Trailing Alabama 10-6 and in need of a break last week the Tigers made two of their own. First CB Corey Webster intercepted a pass in the end zone and returned it 44 yards for a touchdown, changing the tone of the game and the field position. Then DE Marcus Spears stripped Alabama QB Spencer Pennington and LB Cameron Vaughn returned the loose ball eight yards for a touchdown and the go-ahead points.

"They don't like us, we don't like them, it's the same old thing. We're not good friends. So you never know what's going to happen." -- LSU DT Kyle Williams on playing Ole Miss.
