Jefferson starts second half for LSU
By Chris Low
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- LSU coach Les Miles has been committed to keeping Jordan Jefferson involved in the offense and actually started him in the second half of the Tennessee game.
Jefferson has become the Tigers' running quarterback and had several key runs in the 12-play, 66-yard scoring drive.
But when LSU had to convert on third-and-5, Jarrett Lee came back into the game and fired a strike to Rueben Randle for a first down.
It's a combination that has worked to this point. But will it work against Alabama's defense, especially with Lee being more of the designated thrower and Jefferson more of the designated runner?
Then again, maybe Miles is setting everybody up?
