Research Notes

  • Perhaps Coach Miles had this fine full screen of numbers in his hands.Entering last night, both Jordan Jefferson and Jarrett Lee had faced the Tide defense 4-times in their careers..And Lee had thrown 7-picks in 58-pass attempts.

  • The last team prior to LSU to be No. 1 in the poll prior to a Bowl Game/BCS title game, and be shut out in that game was the 1953 Maryland Terrapins, who were shut out by No. 3 Oklahoma, 7-0 in the Orange Bowl.
